A sane man to an insane society must appear insane
There you go, always making excuses for blms.The Daily Caller is a conservative website so be careful about that headline, it tricked a lot of people on Twitter. From my understanding of it, the African-American students simply wanted to have as much resources allocated to them as the African students. They didn't have to make a big show of it though
Here is the actual letter itself. Make of it what you will
mexico"We demand that all students, undergraduate and graduate, to have appropriate, ongoing, and mandatory coursework that deals with issues of identity (such as race, class, religion, ability status, sexual/romantic orientation, gender, citizenship status, etc.). We want this coursework to be explicitly focused on systems of power and privilege in the United States and centering the voices of oppressed people, assembled by professional diversity consultants and student leaders. Every Dean of every college should implement this requirement, and hire faculty to teach this work who are well equipped to do so."
and who's going to pay for this?
Africans work hard you said? Hard work gets you places?
They want free handouts everywhere, even Ivy League handouts. They already have affirmative action which makes it easier for them get into colleges. They want white people to not only feed them but chew the food for them too
Africans work hard. Hard work gets you places. Black Americans have their hand out for free things, which is why their community is what it is.
affirmative action wasn't formed from white guilt but actually the oppositeI'm not black, but if I lived in the US I would check black on college applications to benefit from some of that white guilt (affirmative action).
It's from white guilt over slavery and its socioeconomic after-effects. They threw them a bone.affirmative action wasn't formed from white guilt but actually the opposite
it was made to keep the majority of blacks happy by giving token blacks acceptance
Whites truly are something else
It's a fact, African immigrants do well in Western countries, and yes, they are hard-working and smart. But one wonders what prevents those minds from doing well in their native countries? It's like the infrastructure discourages it, or isn't there.Africans work hard you said? Hard work gets you places?
True. Some African immigrants do well over here due to the immigration policy that only allows high skilled immigrants to move here. Look up immigration act of 1964. Theres a difference between coming in as refugee and an immigrant. The immigrant is already established in terms of career wise and financially whereas the refugee is starting everything from scratch.It's a fact, African immigrants do well in Western countries, and yes, they actually are hard-working and smart.

Aren't you African?They might have a legit grievance since its possible that these are places reserved for minorities that africans and caribbeans are taking....some of these same people who hate on AAs benefitting from their hard won battles. Somalis may have benefitted from these reserved spots. If i were AA i would be a bit perturbed as well.
