US: Blacks are giving blacks a bad name

(Washington, D.C.) On May 1st this year, someone hung bananas with racist messages from nooses at several locations around the campus of American University. The bananas were found shortly after Taylor Dumpson became the first black woman to serve as AU's student body president. The AU president Neil Kerwin called in the U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia as well as The FBI in which to assist the campus police in the investigation.

The police have released a video of a person of interest. However, that hasn’t appeased the black population at AU who feel that the actions of one person amounts to the entire white race oppressing them. So after holding a sit-down demonstration in which to express their perceived hurt and anger,

the so called champions of liberal thinking, free speech issued the University with a list of demands they are:
“For the remaining [sic] of the semester, the Bridge will become a sanctuary for people of color,” the ultimatum begins, referring to a student café and lounge on campus.
Students also demanded that “all POC [persons of color] students get extensions, and should not be penalized for already scheduled finals after the incident,” arguing that the racist incident on campus has distressed many students to the point that they are unable to focus on exams.
The final demand calls for a “separate investigation team based out of the university (composed of a group of non-biased expert contractors) that can investigate cases of racism and discrimination brought against the institution of American University.”

American University Provost Scott Bass has agreed to the students’ demands. Bass also said the college also signed a contract with Ibram X. Kendi, author of “Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America,” to begin an anti-racism center on the school’s campus.

Is that really how we should be tackling ‘racism’? All I see here is a move to make a lot more people become more intolerant towards others at a University where the mix is roughly 50/50 regards whites and non-whites.

Talk about the tail wagging the dog.
