Columbia University is the latest Progressive institution in the United States who will host six different graduation ceremonies based on the ethnicities and backgrounds of its students.
Progressives are bragging to their constituents at town halls that Jim Crow is back but they’re not saying because of whom.
President Donald Trump, his Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, and the Republican Party are being blamed for the resurrection of re-segregation. Yet, as nearly 200 years of history has taught us, Democrats own the legacy of Jim Crow.
After the primary commencement ceremony which includes everyone, there will be separate ceremonies based on ethnicity, queerness, or lack thereof which is sponsored or co-sponsored by Columbia.
The ethnicity-specific graduation ceremonies are not new to Columbia, but with the addition of a new ceremony for students whose parents did not attend college, Columbia is hosting a record number of sequestered ceremonies this year.
The commencements are organized through a collaboration between various student groups (such as the Black Students’ Organization) and the Columbia Office of Multicultural Affairs, which seeks to promote diversity, inclusion, and social justice among students.
In line with the OMA’s mission, it also honors some students with special regalia during graduation season, providing students “who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to diversity, social justice, and multiculturalism” with special graduation cords to celebrate their activism while they attend “the various graduation ceremonies….”
