Behold the New Segregation! From last month:
California State University Los Angeles recently rolled out segregated housing for black students.
The arrangement comes roughly nine months after the university’s Black Student Union issued a set of demands in response to what its members contend are frequent “racist attacks” on campus, such as “racially insensitive remarks” and “microaggressions” by professors and students. One demand was for a “CSLA housing space delegated for Black students.”
“[It] would provide a cheaper alternative housing solution for Black students. This space would also serve as a safe space for Black CSLA students to congregate, connect, and learn from each other,” the demand letter stated.
Cal State LA joins UConn, UC Davis and Berkeley in offering segregated housing dedicated to black students. While these housing options are technically open to all students, they’re billed and used as arrangements in which black students can live with one another.
(Emphasis mine. Personally, I learned a lot from other black students in my K-12 years when I used to get accused by them of wanting to be white. My “crime?” Getting good grades.)
I’d almost be for the new segregation, if I thought it was based on shaking off the unspoken uselessness of the old integration and unacknowledged black inferiority complex which made integration seem necessary—the notion that white schools, neighborhood and businesses were better because they were white.
But I suspect that, just like all the Leftist movements of this century—pun intended—the ideological foundation of the new segregation is non-existent. A true ideological foundation would require independent reading, mostly from the works of evil dead racist white males or from the non-white Civil Rights proponents of the 20th century. I’d wager that none of the new segregationists have read The Autobiography of Malcolm X or Why We Can’t Wait. Too long; too many words to look up.
Assuming that the vast majority of the new segregationists are not paid to do what they are doing—and I think that only the leaders are paid–by hidden actors–it’s a safe bet that the new segregation is based more on [insert race/ethnicity here] Supremacy—an old form of idolatry.
It’s Carcass Worship. Love of dust and clay. Unrequited.
