Academia has been obsessed over identity politics for two generations, so there's some justice in the newest addition to the matrix of oppression: an Ivy League education, according to the Dartmouth College students who this week took over the president's office.
On Tuesday Dartmouth's finest seized the main administration building and disrupted college business. The squatters were allowed to remain until Thursday night, when the dean of the college negotiated and signed an exit settlement assuring them the non-dialogue would continue.
The demonstrators had a 72-point manifesto instructing the college to establish pre-set racial admission quotas and a mandatory ethnic studies curriculum for all students. Their other inspirations are for more "womyn or people of color" faculty; covering sex change operations on the college health plan ("we demand body and gender self-determination"); censoring the library catalog for offensive terms; and installing "gender-neutral bathrooms" in every campus facility, specifically including sports locker rooms.
We rarely sympathize with college administrators but we'll make an exception for Dartmouth President Phil Hanlon, an accomplished mathematician who for some reason took the job last year. The occupiers filmed their confrontation and uploaded the hostage video to the Web, where Mr. Hanlon can be seen agog as his charges berate him for his "micro-aggressions." Those are bias infractions that can't be identified without the right political training.
Mr. Hanlon left after an hour and told the little tyrants that he welcomed a "conversation" about their ultimatums. They responded in a statement that conversationsto be clear, talkingwill lead to "further physical and emotional violence enacted against us by the racist, classist, sexist, heterosexist, transphobic, xenophobic, and ableist structures at Dartmouth." They added: "Our bodies are already on the line, in danger, and under attack."

So they are going to include courses from Hillsdale College?
What horse blank. Absolute horse blank. Some college kids are brainwashed. They need deprogramming.
American decadence and decline on full display. People of no real talent or accomplishment have endless expectations and demand respect and honor. The world is laughing.
The monsters libs have created are now turning on them.
1. Refund their tuition.
2. Expel them.
3. Go to the filing cabinet containg the applications I didn't accept that year, and replace them.
The minute the Ivies started accepting famous celebrities, it confirmed how low things had sunk.
These schools used to be filled with the best brains, but now it’s all about getting Harvard, the name, on the resume, not about using the resources that the university provides.
Barack Hussein Obama?
I think “Deporting” would be the better option
College health plans hardly cover antibiotics for strep throat. How is it going to cover sex change surgery, which is 50-100K not including hormones and cosmetic issues like shaving a male’s adam’s apple or bone structure?
They are all members of the Global Warming Cult.
Non-whites make up 27.6% of the USSA’s population. Dartmouth’s freshman class is 37% ‘people of color.’ Yet the spoiled brats call the school “White Supremacy U.” I guess the school won’t be considered non-racist until it’s student body is 100% non-white.
That’s the whole point. This is mob violence by ‘minorities’ in order to disenfranchise whites.
” Refund their tuition.”
You really think they paid the tuition?
Before then Harvard used to mean something; now it doesn’t.
What a bunch of *ssholes....
Yes that will be the day that the ivies even admit to the existence of Hillsdale!
