    Default Turn back the calendar! University offers segregated housing for....

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/...ated-housing-/

    Segregated housing will now be available to black students at California State University Los Angeles as a means of combating “microaggressions” and “racially insensitive remarks.”
    School officials have honored requests by CSLA's Black Student Union and will offer “housing space delegated for Black students” at the Halisi Scholars Black Living-Learning Community.

    CSLA spokesman Robert Lopez told education watchdog the College Fix on Tuesday via email that its segregated housing will also focus on “academic excellence and learning experiences that are inclusive and non-discriminatory.”

    Mr. Lopez declined to tell the website how much of CSLA’s 192-room residential complex were available for segregated housing. University officials, members of the Black Student Union, and other campus staffers also declined to comment for the website’s piece.

    Some of the demands issued by CSLA's Black Student Union include a $30 million dollar scholarship endowment to assist black students, a new anti-discrimination policy and cultural competency course for faculty and students, the College Fix reported.

    The NAACP and supposed black leaders in this country should speak out against this.

    Their forefathers are turning over in their graves, finding out their descendants are not only willingly being segregated, but clamoring for it.

    UCONN already did it.

    STORRS-- A living space under construction on the University of Connecticut's campus is also under fire.

    It will be called SCHOLA2RS House, and is a UConn learning community meant specifically for African American males. SCHOLA2RS House--which stands for scholastic house of leaders who are African American researchers and scholars--is set to be housed inside NextGen Hall, which is scheduled to open in fall 2016. Here is the description from UConn's website:

    Uconn ScHOLA2RS House is a scholastic initiative to groom, nurture, and train the next generation of leaders to address grand challenges in society through the promotion of academic success in undergraduate programs at the University of Connecticut and in competitive graduate programs.

    Here's another one:

    http://heatst.com/culture-wars/white...ntucky-campus/

    So it's okay to have "Welcome Black Week" but post some flyers for a "Welcome White Week" and it's rscist. Got it.

    Imagine the outrage if they had whites only dorms...
    I don't always listen to hard rock, but when I do, I prefer Van Halen. Stay Frosty my friends.

    This is so surreal. I cannot freaking believe how this manufactured race issue has snowballed. In a country that finally elected a black man president 8 years ago we've somehow managed to go backwards 40 years. Gee, I wonder if this is exactly what said douche bag president wanted and helped cultivate. Nooooo.....not a chance, right?

    I think the scariest part of this is the fact that some people are voluntarily going into these segregated dorms. Listen, I'm all for combatting racism where it actually occurs, like segregated housing. I mean, if that happened at my school (The University of Mississippi, aka Ole Miss), there would be massive uproar and riots in the streets.
    This is not okay and should be strongly discouraged.

    I think equality has now turned into superiority for some. Not Good

    In fifty years, we have come full circle. From forced segregation of colored people to willing segregation of people of color, all in fifty years.

    Nice.

    The stupidity of this is mind numbing.

    Reminds me of an employee I had once, and this is a quote from her to me: "I don't take orders from white people".

    "Ma'am, you're my receptionist, and I'm white. Either you do, or your terminated."

    Proceeds to intentionally rub food all over her desk and leave saying "you'll be hearing from my attorney."

    This was in the early 2000's, so of course I didn't hear from an attorney.

    Same situation occurs today, I wouldn't be so sure that an attorney wouldn't take the case and go with it.

    We all know there are plenty of "victims" of the race card who put up this huge fight that race discrimination needs to go away but that's the last thing they want. Who really believes the Al Sharpton's and Jesse Jackson's of the world really want racial harmony? Of course they don't. What would they do with their time if the actually got it?!!

    And not for nothing, but tell me again who is best buds with those two vile scumbags? Exactly. He sits in the White House.
