Back to Segregation

Instead of dealing with the issues with their culture, they demand special treatment.

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2016/01/31/the-reason-why-uconn-decided-to-build-a-dorm-only-for-black-men/

In order to help black males graduate, the University of Connecticut is constructing a dorm with a living space only for them.

Called the ScHOLA2RS House, the living community for African American males is set to open in 2016. According to UConn's website, the ScHOLA2RS House is "a scholastic initiative to groom, nurture, and train the next generation of leaders to address grand challenges in society through the promotion of academic success in undergraduate programs at the University of Connecticut and in competitive graduate programs."

Dr. Erik Hines, an assistant professor of educational psychology and the future faculty advisor to those in the dorm, said UConn will implement the living space as a "forward-thinking" solution to the fact that black male students graduate at a lower rate.

"It is a space for African American men to one, come together and validate their experiences that they may have on campus. Number two, it's also a space where they can have conversation and also talk with individuals who come from the same background who share the same experience," Hines told WTIC-TV.

However, some students have taken issue with the idea.

"I was not pleased, my immediate thought was `What?'" Haddiyyah Ali, a fourth-semester Africana studies and political science major told the Daily Campus. "I know there had to be a lot of research that went into it.but just for me coming from a student perspective, my initial thought was what about black women and girls - what about us?"

"Just this idea that 43 black men get retention programming and everyone else is left in limbo," Ali continued. "I will always contest to the fact that black men on the campus aren't given enough resources, I will in no way dispel that fact, but my questioning isn't if they need, but is if they need it in this way."

David Ouimette, executive director of first year programs and learning communities, told the Daily Campus that UConn received a grant specifically for a living-learning community.

"It's interesting this hang up on the living part. I don't really understand the hang up," he said.

"The white portion of the University of Connecticut is probably not ready for it," Isaac Bloodworth, a puppetry major, said of the criticisms. "You have people who are going to go against it because they are just racist and they see this as a form of segregation or that we're getting better things than they are."

Bloodworth continued to say that while he's supportive of the community, he's fearful that the living space could lead to a racial divide on campus.

ScHOLA2RS House will be housed in a more than 200,000-square-foot dorm set to open in 2016, according to WTIC.

    It's not PC for anyone but the oppressed to segregate.
    However, when they do it themselves or demand racial benefits... It's okay.

    I ask WHY? HOW? ...is it okay for blacks to demand segregated conditions or benefits
    yet it's NOT OKAY for anyone else to make the same damn suggestion?

    So many things wrong here. Don't agree with it... you're a racist. Puppetry major. Doesn't think it is a step back to segregation.

    It's coming. Let's get it over where I can deal with it and not my kids.

    Now will it be okay to have an all white dorm?
    It seems like the racial separation is now okay again.

    I imagine it is beyond the capability of a 'puppetry major' to grasp, but one can expose this idea for the stupidity it is without being racist. Likewise the 'africans studies' major who isn't opposed to the idea, just that she isn't getting her fair girl share of racial Nummy Nums.

    If I suggest we segregate them due to their inferior culture and proven inability to function in society at large, they would have social justice, Delicate Snowflake meltdowns and have to be escorted to a safe space until the storm of micro-aggressions and trigers passed.

    Buncha simple minded leftist mouthbreathers.

    That article is hilarious! If I was Bl@ack I would feel insulted with how this society tries to prop me up at every turn, it is absolutely amazing how these libtards don't see all this as raycist.

    UCON is saying; hey bl@ck male student you don't do well unless you are coddled, you cannot get along in society so will lower the bar more for you so you can keep up[xx(]

    A puppetry major?????????? WTH! I did not know you could go to college and get a major in puppetry, WTH do you do with it? Get a job on the muppets show?


    This country is done, stick a fork in it.

    A good friend of mine teaches some classes related to his field at a local college.

    He says that if your major ends with the word 'Studies', you should plan to be stuck with a lot of student debt, and an advanced ability to make cappuccino...or upsell fries.

    Lot of wisdom in that.

    DEMOCRAT is the original party of slavery, segregation, and Jim Crow. So what we have are DEMOCRATs going back to their roots.

    In a state that is predominately DEMOCRAT, what's the big deal?

    Most people on these forums believe in states rights, so time to move on.

    Yes, that is a plan for a genius. Borrow $50 grand so you can major in Puppetry. Smoke a lot of dope, drink booze and meet lots of girls for 4 years. A big party.
    Then, you will be fixing fries at McDonalds and calling Comrade Sanders in Vermont about how you need your college debt eradicated, and can't get a job anyway.

    It is absurd that any 4 year college would have a major in Puppetry or African Studies. Can you imagine the professors for these courses? I bet they are a real piece of work.

    Sounds more like an indoctrination center than a University, not that there's much difference anyway.
    An unarmed man can only flee from evil, and evil is not overcome by fleeing from it.

    They've tricked them the name making them think they're "special". What they're really tying to do is put them in a house together where they won't disrupt the other students that actually want to get an education.
