A group of disgruntled students at Dartmouth College sent an 8-page protest letter to leaders of the Ivy League institution Monday calling for reparations for what they claim is the schools oppressive and racist atmosphere and threatened physical action if their demands are not met.
The list of demands, written by concerned Asian, Black, Latin@, Native, Undocumented, Queer, and Differently-Abled students, include:
Racial enrollment quotas for Black and Latino students to at least 10 percent each
Ensure that 47 percent of post-doctoral students are people of color
Ban the use of illegal aliens, illegal immigrants, wetback and any racially charged term
Mandate cultural competency and sensitivity training for professors
Ask staff/faculty to use students and employees preferred gender pronouns
Enroll more students in the country illegally (undocumented students); and provide them free legal assistance and financial aid
Convert ethnic studies programs into full-fledged departments
Incorporate into each department at least one queer studies class
Increase the interdisciplinary academic focus on sexualities
Enact curricular changes to force students to study social justice and marginalization in depth
Provide gender-neutral bathrooms in every building on campus
Create a policy with serious consequences against hate speech/crimes
Create a policy penalizing and discriminating against students who use the Indian mascot
Require schools conservative paper give up Dartmouth name if they use term Indian
Enacting these changes and the many others listed on the lengthy demand letter, its authors stated, will eradicate systems of oppression as they affect marginalized communities on this campus.
These systemswhich include racism, classism, sexism, heterosexism, and ableismare deployed at Dartmouth and beyond as forms of institutional violence, the letter states. We demand that Dartmouth challenge these systems by redistributing power and resources in a way that is radically equitable.
The unnamed students go on to assert that by March 24 the first day of spring term Dartmouth administrators must publicly respond to each item raised in the letter with its exact commitment to each one of its demands and that reparations that require funds have a monetary commitment in the 2014-2015 fiscal budget.
If the Dartmouth administration does not respond by the indicated time, those who believe in freedom will be forced to physical action, the letter states. As mentioned before, this proposal is not about interpersonal interactions, but about restoring justice in an institution beset with a history of discriminatory and oppressive practices.
The letter does not specify what physical action will be taken.
The students called their reparations a freedom budget, and CCd a copy of their letter to every student at Dartmouth College.
THROW THEM OUT OF COLLEGE!!!
And give the slots —paid for—to Legal Immigrants!
HAHAHAHA, I hope they win. Bring the whole dam circus down to the ground! Libtards feeding on libtards.
The school will cave just like they did at the University of Michigan a month or so back.
I believe that's called extortion, and in most states it's against the law.
If they win, I’m declaring myself an American Indian based on my high cheekbones
Ungrateful, ignorant, racist shits. The intended effect of the “everyone gets a trophy” school of parenting. This is what they remind me of:
concerned Asian, Black, Latin@, Native, Undocumented, Queer, and Differently-Abled students
They exclude bowlegged Gypsies? This kind of discrimination should get this bigoted group kicked off campus.
What the hell is ableism?
A serious spanking is in order.

No, no, no...pop the popcorn and enjoy the show. Dartmouth is a POS leftist institution. They deserve a taste of their own medicine.
Bottom line we dont need no school give us dat piece a paper and we will leave
No particular dog in this hunt. May the winner inherit the burned down husk of the university.
Did you see where they studied the DNA from American Indians and found they came through Siberia, but were originally from Germany? That’s right, they are European.
I guess that means albinos get 53 percent.
Nothing like a few good threats to get your way, particularly if your a minority. Talk about racists in reverse.
I’m with you, the more the better. These universities deserve this.
“men of Dartmouth set a watch,
lest the old traditions fail,
stand as brother stands by brother,
dare a deed for the old mother.”
