TIME FOR CHANGE: THE PUSH FOR REAL RACIAL DIVERSITY ON AMERICA’S CAMPUSES CONTINUES IN 2015

I would love to say that my four years at Marquette were free of any racial incidents but that would be a blatant lie. More than once I saw students of color being marginalized for no reason other than their race. While these events were rare, or because I am a white woman I did not appreciate the subtlety of the racism and thus the pervasiveness of the problem, they did occur. Now fast forward more than two decades to the middle of the second decade of the 21st Century and once again we are confronted with racism on college campuses in the United States.

It took a potential $ 1 million hit to the University of Missouri by the football team threatening to boycott this weekend’s game against Brigham Young University to bring down university President Tim Wolfe and Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin. Wolfe had been accused of racial insensitivity by some and outright bigotry by others. The truth is that bigotry is rampant on college campuses in America because of the polarization of politics that has taken place in the past two decades culminating with the election of the first person of color as President of the United States.

Conservatives are outraged at Wolfe’s departure calling the student activists radicals and worse in their online missives. I applaud both the character of the students at Missouri and the resolve of the athletics department which stood behind the football players and their coach in support of the student activists. This has been a long time coming and isn’t isolated to Columbia, Missouri. Just yesterday students took to the streets at Yale University seeking to have their voices heard over the echo chamber of white male patriarchy.

    the so called “athletes” are nothing but low iq, paid mules by the university for their $$$ “sport” teams. Basket weaving 101 for a full ride “scholarship” inst worth the paper it is written on……play or GET THE FUCK OUT…… PERIOD!!

    • To attend the University of Missouri one must score, at minimum, between 1050 and 1080 on the SAT and graduate high school with a 2.8 grade point average. We, Ourselves would also point out that the 45 white players and 17 white members of the coaching staff stood as one in their decision to go on strike.

    “Ok I have some truths too. The reality is that blacks in this country need whites. They cannot exist without them. Whites on the other hand don’t need blacks at all. If every single black person were to disappear from this country tomorrow, things would actually improve.

    The same is true for liberals. Liberals cannot exist without conservatives. They desperately need conservatives to fund all their programs. They certainly couldn’t exist relying on the 47% of the population that doesn’t produce anything except children and burdens for society.

    Let’s look at that for the truth of it. The current president wouldn’t be the president without whites. Oprah wouldn’t be Oprah without whites. Any random rapper wouldn’t have the career he/she has without whites. Any random NFL or NBA athlete wouldn’t have the life they do without whites. This guy wouldn’t be on TV without whites.

    I could say I know how they feel but I can’t. I am not a member of the race always on the bottom. They know even their rare accomplishments are not their own. That is how it has always been. They cannot accomplish anything within their own context.

    Look at the source. That is always the best thing in these type situations. Look at Africa. Without the Europeans or the Chinese, nowadays, Africa would still be in the first century. We have to remember these people were preliterate stone age savages when brought to these shores centuries ago. The ingratitude of these people is astounding, but predictable.”

    • And yet white English colonials and after white Americans chose not to do the hard work of building their New World nation; instead they used forced labour and when the immorality of this act could no longer be tolerated they committed an act of war threatening to destroy the Union. The truth is all people need each other in order to live and prosper in Peace. If you want to see what is wrong with America, look in the nearest mirror.

    blah blah blah..the egyptions used slaves to build the pyramids…DOWN with imperial egypt

    • The use of slave labor in all cases is immoral and a crime against the Souls and Lineage of the slaveholders. Look at Egypt now as a lesson in karma.

  5. neocon01 Says:

    if leftists, jews and blacks are in that mirror yes

    • A dominionist, anti semitic racist lies below. This is what you wish your legacy to be after your short time on Terra?

      • neocon01 Says:

        better that the rancid hatred, division, murder that is yours.

      • We, Ourselves see no hatred on our side save for the hatred of people who feel that liberty exists only for a certain class, race or gender norm. Liberals have always been at ideological war with Conservatives. Was it Liberals who enslaved blacks in America? Surely as you have shouted many times it was those in the Democratic party at the time; those men were conservatives, traditionalists and used their belief in their version of religion to justify a Holocaust. If you choose to believe that your race is better than all other races then that is your right. We, Ourselves, of The Collective and the Meditators choose to oppose you with the truth that “all men are created equal.”

  6. neocon01 Says:

    then you stupider than the human brain can concieve

  7. neocon01 Says:

    “all men are created equal.”

    but NOT women?? ooh tsk tsk
