Student "activists" at pricey private college demand "Diversity Coordinator," mandatory black studies course
Last Wednesday student activists representing Black Lives Matter met with the president of the college to demand that the college hire a "Vice Provost of Diversity and Inclusion, require all students to complete courses in "social justice" and "black history," create an "Africana Studies department," hire more staff for W&M’s "Center for Student Diversity," and recruit more black students.
The complainers noted that the University of Virginia has a "Vice President and Chief Officer for Diversity and Equity," who was paid an astonishing $338,800 last year.
Nice gig, eh?
When the president noted that "demands" weren't a good approach, the snowflakes sneered that his response was “white supremacy” and “patriarchy.” One student--a "student coordinator at W&M’s Center for Student Diversity"--wrote “This is what being censored looks like. This is what white supremacy looks like. This is what patriarchy looks like. This is what condescension looks like. This is what being told ‘you, your issues and your life don’t matter’ looks like.
Excuse me? "Censored"? What a crock! It's clear that this creature--the whiny complainer--doesn't know the meaning of "censored."
It's also clear that W&M will be soon be diverting half a million bucks per year from actual productive teaching to total wastes of time and money. But whiny students with lists of demands will have pressured another university president into capitulating to utter bullshit.
Black student "activists" are appeased for ten minutes--and encouraged to push more demands.
College president feels virtuous for doing what they demand.
Other students pay more tuition and get less useful education for it.
Percentage of employable college grads declines.
Sounds like a great plan.
