UC Berkeley Students Demand Segregated Safe Spaces... For 'Equality'?!
Safe spaces are everywhere. From colleges to... more colleges. Turns out safe spaces are mostly a leftist, college thing. They haven't really caught on in the real world, or what's better known as the realm of the employed. It's an injustice to college leftists. Speaking of injustices, some of those college safe spaces? They're not separated according to skin color. So UC Berkeley students took it upon themselves to protest against the university staff for failing to segregate the spaces. Monsters.
Students at the University of California, Berkeley held a protest demanding that the University create both "safe spaces" for transgenders and "spaces of color" for non-white students on campus.
Protesters [were] preventing white students from passing over a key bridge on route to many classes... While allowing access to students of color. [They] also prevented white students from studying in the Student Union and stopped traffic at the main intersection in front of campus.
A "notice of eviction" on the side of the student store [read,] "You are hereby notified... to vacate the premises immediately... University administration wrongly allocated this two-story facility to a third-party corporation, keeping in line with its intensifying legacy of prioritizing financial profit over student needs."
This is what our "bright, young minds of the future" busy themselves with. Homework, jobs, and class can wait until another day. Or life. More pressing things are at hand, obviously. Diversity NOW!
Not sure this is what Martin Luther King JR meant when he said "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character..."
Irony and contradictions aside, this is why people don't like SJWs. It would appear that leftists can't make a point without making everyone around them uncomfortable or fear for their safety. I know, I know, words are hard. Pitchforks easy.
Seems like college students find new things to rage about every day (see Newest College Outrage: Dean Fired Merely For Saying 'Offensive' Book Title...). Imagine if these students spent, say, half of that effort on studying. They could get their gender studies degree in no time. Alas, a social justice warrior's work is never done. After all, someone has to segregate the safe spaces.
There was a time when colleges set the standard for intellect. But these days? They're a husk of what they used to be. Safe spaces are in and the gold standard of education is out, disappeared like flatulence in the wind. Now universities are but a rectal spasm of leftist ideology. Progress.
Not that I would expect anything else from UC Berkeley...
