Except it does.
Nope all majors means all black people with that major unless specified other wise. After all according to lefties African Americans can't feel safe in the presence of white people.
Where did it say “all black people”?
majors are areas of study not people.
Which includes people of all races. Thanks!
Uh no areas of study are not people.
True, areas of study aren’t people which is why I didn’t claim such. But people of all races are in areas of study, right? You do know people graduate from the different areas of study, right? This shouldn’t have to be explained to you. Yikes.
So why say all majors instead of all people?
Because all majors include all people?
Then it's settled? No segregation or exclusions.
I can't be a mind reader of why one attends or doesn't attend something. And, it really doesn't matter.
It does matter, because segregated functions like "Black Graduation" are harmful to the goal of a colorblind society, regardless of whether they are segregated explicitly or implicitly.
We know this is a segregated function because no non-black graduates chose to participate.
Segregated functions should not be held in publicly funded venues by publicly funded institutions. I don't understand how this is even debatable.
Go ahead and worry your mind all you want about 1 university AA studies program all you want.
The students there are not worried about it.
The OP posed a simple question that has nothing to do with what the students want. Why are segregated events allowed at publicly funded schools?
It's a really good question that every leftist has avoided here. It shouldn't be surprising, though, because that is the position they have taken since the founding of the country.
You admitted several times how the event is inclusive.
Who attends or doesn't attend is a choice.
It's not been avoided. It's been answer many times over. It's not an issue.
EDIT: If it is a real big issue to you, you should go to Berkley board of regents or write them about your concerns.
Since you agree there's no exclusions taking place and those who attend or don't attend do so by choice.
But maybe you can get the school to force non blacks to attend something they don't want to attend.
I've not seen any evidence that anyone has been excluded. It's technically inclusive only because the law requires it to be. But, it is IMPLICITLY segregated, as is evidenced by the name of the event, "Black Graduation", the published description of the event, and the attendance results in the graduation procession. I get that leftists support this segregation, they always have. They just can't be as overt as they have in the past, nor can they count on the police or KKK to back them up any more.
Just so we're clear: I don't have ANY issue with "Black Graduation" celebrations. I take issue only with the public funding of them. Everyone, and in particular those who see value in a truly colorblind society, should. That goal can never be reached as long as these lines of division are encouraged.
You said, it's not a black graduation celebration. Anyone is open to attend.
I didn't name it, the organizers did.
So, that's the name.
For the record, Ericka Huggins was their keynote speaker who they called a "political prisoner." She was a founding member of the New Haven Black Panther Party. Her group kidnapped a man they suspected of being an information and they tortured him before they killed him.
Here is the transcript of the trial and the recording they took of their torture.
The story she tells is that she caught a member sleeping in their "office" which was against their rules. So she kicked him and said "Mother-F'r wake up!" When he got up he picked up a newspaper and they claimed he previously told them that he couldn't read. So she had him "disciplined" by hitting him in the face. Then he started crying which she said she wouldn't allow so they "took a stick too him" for acting like a coward. Then they got into a full on struggle and they pinned him down and while pouring boiling water over his body she made him read their 10-point program. You can hear his screams in the audio recording during this interrogation. During their torture they made him tell them names of people they think might be spies or working with the FBI. Then they shot him to death.
She admitted to her part in the torture and kidnapping during trial and her voice was on the recording. This is who they called in to be their esteemed keynote speaker and called her a "political prisoner" because she was put on trial for her part in the murder.
This whole thing is a complete joke and these people need psychiatric help.
I wouldn't care if they had satan himself as the keynote speaker, or Bin Laden's hairdresser, as long as it wasn't funded with public funds.
The Left's riots during 2020 and following were quite the spike. And we have fresh data on Extremism that might interest you.
SHOCKING NEWS FROM THE WORLD OF SCIENCE: Left-wing extremism linked to psychopathy and narcissism: study https://trib.al/ObEDzgK
'Left-wing extremism is linked to toxic, psychopathic tendencies and narcissism, according to a new study published to the peer-reviewed journal Current Psychology.'
DON'T FORGET THE AUTHORITARIANISM
“Based on existing research, we expected individuals with higher levels of left-wing authoritarianism to also report higher levels of narcissism,” the authors wrote.
MAKES SENSE, THE SEAL THEMSELVES OFF FROM DISCONFIRMATION
'As result of the new data, study authors Ann Krispenz and Alex Bertrams have coined a new term for such psychological behavior: the “dark-ego-vehicle principle.”'
FELONISM POSING AS RIGHTEOUSNESS
'“According to this principle, individuals with dark personalities — such as high narcissistic and psychopathic traits — are attracted to certain forms of political and social activism which they can use as a vehicle to satisfy their own ego-focused needs instead of actually aiming at social justice and equality,” they told PsyPost.
EGO NOT EQUALITY, which makes sense, as they promote violence and lawlessness, not equality and justice.
VILE SICK PUPPIES DRIVEN BY TWISTED MADNESS AND VARIOUS HUNGER FOR VALIDATION
“In particular, certain forms of activism might provide them with opportunities for positive self-presentation and displays of moral superiority, to gain social status, to dominate others, and to engage in social conflicts and aggression to satisfy their need for thrill seeking.”
'The study on left-wing authoritarianism also showed that many times they do not practice what they so loudly preach.'
'Social justice is often used as a guise for these activists to behave unhinged, the research noted.'
Hopefully this gives you a more balanced view of what drives Left Wing political violence.
And back to topic. I completely agree with the OP's point on segregation. We as a society chose integration. Segregationists are promoting division. I support unity and common community.
And pivoting towards it encourages more of the same and a weaker argument against it when it is white racists doing it.
