Is segregation cool again? Black students at Harvard are holding a “black-only” graduation on May 23. Michael Huggins, who is graduating with a master’s in public policy from the Harvard Kennedy School, told The Root that the event, which separates students based on race, is not about segregation. “It’s about fellowship and building a community,” he said, “This is a chance to reaffirm for each other that we enter the work world with a network of supporters standing with us. We are all partners.” Clearly, he is only interested in certain supporters and partners.
The article in The Root goes on to say that
The ceremony, which will focus on graduate students, comes at a time when the experiences of many black students, undergraduate and grad, on college campuses in America have been marked by incidents of overt racism, microaggressions, passive racist comments, and the marginalization of minority experiences in both reading assignments and learning materials.
Apparently, they are going to fight these things by doing them to other students. Is it just me, or are the so-called “elite” schools getting more ridiculous by the day?
