Students at the University of Chicago are calling for racial segregation during the college orientation week, as well as segregated buildings for different races and illegal immigrants.
A group calling themselves UChicago United (an ironic name for a group demanding separation of people by race) has submitted a list of demands with this and similar policies they wish the university to introduce. According to them, the orientation, “would familiarize students with campus resources and multicultural registered student organizations” and should “ease the transition to the university’s campus climate and academic demands.”
They are also demanding that more non-white professors should be hired, with remaining white staff to “include more insight from Black authors, specifically Black women.”
Segregated buildings are to be constructed if the groups gets what they want, including “cultural houses, specifically a Black house, a Latinx house, and an Asian house.” Plus an additional “Latino Cultural House” to “cater to the needs” of international and illegal students. One could question the choice of races that would receive their own building – are all “Asians” the same, no matter what their culture or nationality? Why not have a “Native American” house? Or an “Arab” house? And so on.
According to the Daily Caller:
Not unused to responding to extraordinary requests, the university is carefully considered the latest batch. University spokeswoman Marielle Sainvilus informed the The College Fix that the administration has “held dozens of meetings, open forums, and conversations on diversity and conclusion and [they] have more meetings planned before the end of the academic year” while they “look forward to continued dialogue.”
Sainvilus refused to condemn the university’s hosting a racially segregated orientation program more than 50 years after the end of Jim Crow practices.
“We are reviewing and continuing dialogue,” she said.
