It has been a wild couple of days on America’s college campuses.
The Snowflake Brigade is out in force, turning our institutions of higher learning into preschools and daycare centers. Here are some of the most insane stories to come out of our colleges lately.
At Yale University, a professor who considers herself a champion of “cultural sensitivity” has been forced to apologize for referring to people as “white trash” on ratings review websites.
June Chu, the dean of Pierson College, apologized for her “insensitive” Yelp reviews of restaurants, gyms, and movie theaters, including describing what “white trash” customers would like and describing employees as “barely educated morons.”
In her apology, sent to all students at the college she heads, she admitted her comments were out of line.
“I have learned a lot this semester about the power of words and about the accountability that we owe one another,” Chu wrote in the email. “My remarks were wrong. There are no two ways about it. Not only were they insensitive in matters related to class and race; they demean the values to which I hold myself and which I offer as a member of this community.”
At Bethel University in Minnesota, a student was forced to apologize after wearing a Chicago Blackhawks shirt to class.
Cody Albrecht wore the jersey to his “Social Perspectives, Human Worth and Social Action” class, The College Fix reports.
Apparently, the mere presence of the jersey caused some frowny faces, especially with the instructor, James Jacobs, who is American Indian.
Albrecht offered to turn the shirt inside out after realizing how upset people said they were.
That wasn’t enough for Jacobs, who took to Facebook to bitch.
In Michigan, students at UM are claiming they are being “marginalized” by the “masculine” nature of the school’s student union.
The Union on campus – one of the most recognizable buildings on campus – is large, old, and imposing. Inside, the wood paneling and stately décor of the century-old building makes it “quiet” and “imposing.”
And all this is just too much for some students.
Anna Wibbleman, a student and former president of “Building a Better Michigan” told a student government meeting that “minority students felt marginalized by quiet, imposing masculine paneling” that can be found throughout the building.
Down south, students protested Republican Sen. John Cornyn speaking at their commencement, stating he held opposing views from the graduating body–from his confirmation votes for Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos and Attorney General Jeff Sessions to his opposition of sanctuary cities.
According to Fox News, “Students at Texas Southern University in Houston had circulated a petition demanding the Texas senator be withdrawn as a commencement speaker.”
Out in California, the Black Student Union at UC Santa Cruz, who already got some concessions after staging a “sit in” at an administration building, are now demanding more.
The African/Black Student Alliance spent three days “occupying” Kerr Hall, the administration building at the University of California Santa Cruz.
They made several demands, including repainting the all-black dorm the colors of the African diaspora (red, gold, and green); requiring “educational diversity” classes for all new students; and converting the first floor of the dorm into a community lounge, among others.
The school caved to these demands, but instead of taking their victory and walking away, they’ve returned and now are demanding more, the College Fix is reporting.
