UC Santa Cruz Caves in to Black Students' Demands

Hat tip Legal Insurrection




“We recognize that we have more work to do in supporting [Afrikan, Black and Caribbean] (ABC) students here at UC Santa Cruz,” director of media relations Scott Hernandez-Jason read from a letter from the chancellor to a crowd of about 400 at Kerr Hall. “We are committed to build capacity to fully integrate ABC-identified students so that they have a sense of belonging and connectedness here on campus.”


Last week some black students at UC Santa Cruz (America's Wackiest University) occupied the offices of the school's feckless chancellor, an empty suit named George Blumenthal. They had a list of demands which included repainting Rosa Parks House green, red and black, the colors of African nationalism or something like that. They also demanded mandatory diversity training for all incoming freshmen. Along the way, they launched some anti-Jewish taunts at Jewish students. And guess what: The school caved in to all demands. No wonder the school mascot is a banana slug!

Here is the campus newspaper article. Of course, it says nothing about the taunts directed at Jewish students.

Now let me pose this question: If a group of Jewish students had occupied Kerr House and along the way hurled racist taunts at black students, do you think they would have achieved their demands? Not hardly. Instead, they would have been at the very least suspended. And rightfully so.

And what is with these "Caribbean" students? Am I to assume that we have Caribbean students at UC Santa Cruz who have come to the US to study and instead participate in occupying university buildings and making demands? If that's the case, I say send them back.

The foolish students have done nothing more than strike a blow for segregation. They have also done a disservice to the memory of Rosa Parks.

University of California Santa Cruz... the sandbox where failed revolutionaries go to die.
