What they are experiencing is Racism being exorcized from their souls.
Simmons said universities could also develop multicultural programs that do a better job of representing the entirety of students’ home cultures, rather than simply holding a stereotypical celebration for major holidays.
Why would that matter? Aren’t we all the same?
There is a reason why the locals call this paper The Daily Joke-lahoman.
If speaking normal English, walking like a normal human being, studying and dressing normal is White....well...
Who pays to study this kind of nonsense?
What kind of retarded culture is this much against education? I’m guessing the same one which demands that an illiterate person with 10 illegitimate children should have the same working wage as someone who tried to learn and be productive.
What an idiot.
This is the same thing that farm boys and small town kids and mountain kids and big city kids ALL feel. It's called socialization...i.e. learning how to move about in societies which are different than the one you grew up in.
Average football team and a sub-average newspaper.
send them all to the schools that Colonel West, Dr. Benjamin Carson, or Herman Cain went to....then they can learn to live like an American.
I was a white student at Cleveland State University (Cleveland, OH) briefly in the mid 1990s. I certainly felt some cultural tension, especially when I took one of the mandatory “Black Studies” classes. It was hard to stomach the lies and half-truths that were laid upon my ears.
I was old enough to see through the BS, but most of the students in that class were too young to have lived through all the events that were mentioned. As such, they were being brainwashed into believing things that simply were not true.
If you listened to the professors in that (and other) class, you would believe that all the hard-working white folks were the root of all evil that every existed in Cleveland.
I’d be willing to be the ‘uneasiness’ and ‘being out of place’ feelings they are having are the result of not being in an HBCU or MI or some Northeastern Liberal Cesspool Collage [I spelled it like that on purpose] where their grades and performance don’t matter and “being black is passing.”
I made french toast.
By definition Groupthink requires mindguards to protect the shared thought of the group.
On display is the protection of the manufactured thought it is a racist America. Without that thought, Democrats lose a significant portion of their voter base.
Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson were ordered to feign indignation and stage protests to keep the group members from questioning their assertions.
Al and Jesse are spending credibility with 30% of the group to save 70%. Whites and hispanics see through the whole thing.
Black students are being scrutinized for their position. Either they are thinking open minded individuals in the 30% or racist liars backing injustice in the 70%. Those in the %70 pretending they are in the %30 are the really conflicted ones and the ones that will project racism to cover their own racist tracks.
well, duh, wasn't that the original intent of higher education?
Maybe they should try American culture on for size and drop their separatist attitudes.
any college student from a family without college grads goes through the same thing. There are many similar stories from Appalachia, people that go back and never mention that they are just back from China or India, so these poor boo hoo black people that are realizing their culture is keeping them down better figure out how to deal. Many people speak one language at home and a different language at work, it is not that uncommon
What, they feel themselves "turning white" by simply getting an education and participating in the economy?
