WTF is this crap?! I’m sorry, but this is really bad for the USA. Physically separating people is not the way to advance our country as a whole.
The University of Connecticut has recently come under fire for planning to build an all-black male dormitory titled “SCHOLA2RS House” (Scholastic House Of Leaders who are African American Researchers and Scholars).
From UConn’s official website:
“Uconn SCHOLA2RS House is a scholastic initiative to groom, nurture, and train the next generation of leaders to address grand challenges in society through the promotion of academic success in undergraduate programs at the University of Connecticut and in competitive graduate programs.”
Dr. Erik Hines, assistant professor of educational psychology at the university, is one of the proponents of the new house, and also happens to be lined up as a faculty advisor for the students living there once it opens in Fall 2016. Dr. Hines claims that SCHOLA2RS House is “a space for African American men to one, come together and validate their experiences that they may have on campus.” Hines further elaborates that the new dorm would also serve as “a space where they can have conversation and also talk with individuals who come from the same background who share the same experience.”
