According to this, the professor in this clip:
Has been suspended indefinitely from Essex County College.
If you don’t want to rage through that clip, she was arguing – obnoxiously – that the all black Memorial Day celebration was their right and was the best option for black people who wanted to attend.
That’s fine. You can do whatever you want to here in the USA. If you want to exclude everyone else from your party, fine. But, two things.
- Don’t bitch when other races have parties for only their race. Can’t go to the Mexican party? Boo hoo, lady. Can’t go to the white party? Boo hoo, again. If you can, everyone else can, too. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.
- You should be ashamed. No, I’m not kidding. Your ancestors – your mother and father, your grandparents, etc. – fought damn hard to be included in society. I mean, damn hard. They lived through segregation. They fought like mad and a lot of folks were beaten, arrested, killed, etc. trying to win that fight. They won. By the grace of God, they won! And now here you are fighting for black only parties, black only housing on college campuses, black only college graduations… you are fighting damn hard to reverse everything your ancestors bled for! How dare you! Have some respect for those who came before you and created the life you have. Yes, there is still work to be done. There always will be. But winning the next fight should never include destroying the previous victories.
