    Just when you think things can't get crazier at our colleges, the University of Michigan held a racially segregated diversity forum.

    I think it's crazy to segregate the people by races when attempting to discuss diversity. Do you agree with me or do you think the school was correct ?

    It's not the diversity part that's the issue, it's that they segregated everyone according to a special trait that binds them, like latinos with latinos, etc.

    I guess "human" wasn't an option.

    This person could probably use a few more "diversity" meetings. They only seem to know how to speak AT white people.

    Ah yes let me think about my peoples history. Famine, child slavery, indentured servitude, Irish or Catholics need not apply, and abject poverty.

    It's okay. It's not like I am ever going to hire these entitled diversity warriors to fill some ******** quota.

    It's pretty simple. Keep dividing and seperating people, pit them against each other, and society will never move past the division.

    After seeing the article it states languages like Spanish, French and German aren't as culturally relevant as Swahili... w..t...f

    And we wonder why tech companies have problems filling quotas, the "diverse" students are learning stupid **** like Swahili on a US campus.

    You could be onto something. That could be why blacks were not allowed in some universities at one time. Maybe the white people didn't want to hurt the black peoples feelings.

    Here's a really crazy question ... I don't know why I even ask it ...

    But did you look into the reasons behind the segregated forums?

    Is is even remotely possible that there some underlying lesson or exercise behind it?

    Ah. So it's about safe spaces. Okay. I'm not a big fan.

    I personally wouldn't begrudge them their safe space for a limited time, so long as they participated and engaged in the rest of the session.

    Whenever someone says people of colour, you know they are a racist. It's a racist term used by people who hate fair skinned Caucasians.
    --- Post Merged, Oct 20, 2016 ---

    There is a big safe space on the continent of Africa, it is really safe because they are very few white people there. Who cares about FGM, honour killings, child soldiers, mass child murder, rape and abduction. The real problem I'd that people don't feel safe with the white devil around.


    They want it to be so safe that even science must fall as it is racist.

    When a student questioned the African theory of electricity(people can use black magic to strike people with lightning) he was made to apologize.

    I agree, facts are very disturbing. Throwing out 500 years of the use of the scientific method because white people applied it is very triggering. The nerve of Issac Newton for inventing gravity, did he ask everyone if they also wanted gravity? Just another white dude oppressing people of colour.

    Fixing a perceived racial divide by dividing races, makes total sense. People want to make things better, everyone put on their big boy pants, thicken your skin, don't live on the edge of your seat ready to scream you're offended, save calling anyone a racist as your only defense, talk.

    Sad article. Though reading anything about race on this forum kind of exposes why things like this still exists.

    You already left us once because you couldn't handle it back in the winter/spring. Please don't leave us again, @citizenzen. We beg of you.
