There’s been a disturbing, growing trend in higher education: Universities are encouraging black students to segregate themselves from white students and non-black minorities with separate dorm rooms, activities, gyms, and even graduations, according to Forbes.
And many liberal students — white, black, and other minorities — are fine with it. In fact, they think it’s healthy.
Documentary filmmaker Ami Horowitz just conducted man-on-the-street interviews with students at Columbia University to get their take on the segregation trend and compare it to what normal people outside the campus think. The answers he got will blow your mind.
“Ya, I would support it,” said one female student when asked if black students should be offered their own facilities.
“I don’t see a problem with that,” said another female student. “I want to be with people like me.”
“Why not?” said yet another female student, who was among several who readily expressed their support for separate housing and graduations.
Then Horowitz decided to ask the same question to black people several blocks away from the university campus. He got very different — and far more sensible — answers.
“Why?” asked one shocked woman. “You going back in time? Why are you separating? We’re all together.”
“I don’t understand the logic there. It’s obviously terrible to separate people by race,” said one black man, not realizing how many young people have been directed away from that obvious conclusion. “Separating people by race at the gym? I don’t even understand that. So white people don’t get their feelings hurt when they get dunked on?”
“I feel that’s basically segregation,” said another black man. “We should all graduate together.”
“Discrimination might not be the ultimate goal, but people take it that way,” warned yet another. “It’s all about social skills, and if you can’t converse with people who are not of the same skin color as you, then there’s no reason for you to be social at all.”
Horowitz even interviewed an imperial wizard for the “loyal white knights” of the Ku Klux Klan to get his take on encouraging black people to separate themselves from everyone else.
“I think it’s a good thing,” he said.
“Are you glad the Left has finally come around to your point of view?” Horowitz asked him.
“It would be good if the Left continues that way,” the imperial wizard replied.
