    UC Berkeley once again hosting its blacks only graduation event. So are we going back to segregation in society?

    Is this how elements of the left "fight racism" ? Didn't we go through the civil Rights era and lots of pain and suffering to make schools a desegregated place?

    How sad that such an important event can't be shared by all, regardless of race.

    It is being shared by all, at least according to the link in the OP

    “The Department of African American Studies plans on hosting our annual Black Graduation ceremony, which is open to all majors and degree programs across the campus,” read the announcement.

    The invite (hyperlink in the link in the OP) reads as follows…

    OPEN TO UNDERGRADUATES AND GRADUATES, AFRICAN AMERICAN STUDIES MAJORS AND STUDENTS IN ALL OTHER MAJORS AND COLLEGES

    I don’t know for sure but I’m going to guess not everyone who majored in African Studies is black.

    But of course if any University dared to host a whites only graduation event you would never hear the end of it.

    It appears that only black people are allowed to choose segregation by race.

    Have you ever heard of a conservative demanding a safe space? When describing safe spaces, often the first words are ‘no white people allowed.’

    Yes, putting people on ignore on a forum is equivalent to needing a safe space.
    The whole safe space thing regardless of who wants/needs it is such a joke.

    LOL: Only from the Right-- they complain about blacks graduating separately; after complaining that the blacks would not even be in these elite schools, without "Affirmative Action."

    I have several people on ignore because all they do is Trump, Trump and more Trump. Putting them on ignore is the equivalent of closing the windows so the bugs don’t come in. You can call that a safe space but it pales compared to what the left does.

    Keep Black people happy and let them cleave to themselves. It'll be better for everyone involved I suppose.

    That it bothers you so much that you can’t even see those posts shows how much you need that safe space.

    No, it is the errant quality of your post, which is the thickness you feel, in the atmosphere; I am not "someone who calls successful black men an uncle Tom."

    But fake accusations, are hardly surprising, when one considers the source. It's not as if there is sufficient precedent, to expect that you would have a legitimate point, to debate.

    What I see is that rather than addressing the topic, you instead opted to change the subject.

    Who said it bothers me so much? I prefer not to read posts from people who are barely literate and only know one word with that word being Trump. I don’t crawl up into a ball and cry. I don’t demand a space where just me and my kind are allowed to be in. I don’t yell everything is racist.I don’t cry to administrators or mods. And my feelings aren’t traumatized for life.

    I’ll let you win this debate because you seem hell bent on trying to get the best of me and you’re not. But if you ever decide to do so, then just flood this board with Trump Trump Trump in every thread and you’ll find yourself residing with people with very limited vocabularies.

    What fake accusations? You've called successful black men you dislike an Uncle Tom on this forum at least a dozen times this year by my recollection. How can you possibly deny that? Suddenly now you're offended at the thought of people calling others an Uncle Tom? You've defended your behavior ad nauseam. Let me know when conservatives call those taking this major or graduating an Uncle Tom because they dislike them. Until then, your preaching of morality is far worse than anything you've accused others of.

    If you prefer to not read posts that you don’t like then don’t read them. That you have to put them on ignore shows how much it does bother you. Meh…whatever.

    What I did, was point to evidence that leads me to believe, the thread's motive is animated by a racially discriminatory attitudes. Here are some quick quotes I grabbed from a recent thread about college "affirmative action" from, granted, a different poster, but one playing that familiar Republican song:

    Even the manifestly highly intelligent Ketanji Brown-Jackson-- who is far more accomplished than probably anyone on this forum-- is referred to as:


    P.S.-- I'm not addressing my comments to your post, Turtle; I'm just using your posts as an example, in a different discussion.

    Whites are a threat to black freedom. Parents are a threat to the freedom of their children. Laws are a threat to criminals. Gas stoves are a threat to the planet as a whole.

    There is no nook or cranny on the face of this planet that isn't threatened by those that oppose the Liberal Progressive vision of freedom and, as such, we can not be a free, democratic people if we allow Crimethink to exist and continue to threaten the perfection that is Ingsoc.

    Have you been checked, this year, for Alzheimer's? Because I didn't do that a single time. Instead of continuing to throw around an accusation that I have already told you, is baseless, do you need directions, to be able to operate the Forum's "search" feature? Look up that phrase, under my name. All you will find is a post with me saying that I would not have chosen, as did another poster, to use that phrase.

    Because in backwards liberal logic land.... segregation is bad. Unless it's by the people previously segregated at their own will while simultaneously segregating other races which is directly contrary and racist.

    There is no logic. None.

    The left NEEDS a victim, so they will go out of their way to create them. Even if they look foolish.

    Your bait sinks so you should try to change it.

    So basically you don't see a problem with this right?

    Both of those racist issues are not mutually exclusive.

    Your trying to justify racism, with more racism.

    No. Because you're reaching.

    Nobody complains about blacks graduating. They complain about blacks being admitted on racist grounds.
