When I was a child, many moons ago, segregation was still in force. I remember travel from Los Angeles to New Orleans in 1959 on our way to Atlanta to visit my sister. I was sitting next to the first black person I ever meet. A woman in her eighties going to visit her family. My mother wasn’t a freedom fighter by any means but she was a Christian and so my mother insisted on helping the lady into the station, and seeing that she made her connections.
As we waited I got a taste of what segregation was all about. The black lady was concerned because my mother sat with her and not in the white’s only section. The lady also advised me not to drink from the colored water fountain. Not only did the whites look at us angrily but the blacks as well. That and other incidents during our stay in Atlanta have remained with me till this day.
Segregation was a cruel and evil ploy perpetrated on blacks but Democrats. Now however it seems that blacks have decided the segregation is a good thing. Something to be wished for. Why do I say this–
Black students at Harvard University are organizing a graduation ceremony of their own this year excluding whites, to recognize the achievement of black students and faculty members some say have been overlooked.
By “some” they must mean obsessively Afrocentric black supremacists. (see article No Whites Allowed)
Harvard joins a growing number of universities that have added graduation events for students of different ethnicities. Some have offered black commencement ceremonies for years, including Stanford, Marshall and University of Washington. Some have added them more recently, and are also adding events for a variety of cultural groups.
These have included Latinos and sexual deviants. If universities are going to preach cultural Marxist divisiveness, they may as well practice it. At the Harvard black graduation,
Every student will receive a stole made of traditional African kente cloth, meant to symbolize their shared heritage and to be worn with their cap and gown at the university’s graduation.
Liberal heads would explode if they had a separate graduation to celebrate those who got into and through school on their own merits, without any help from Affirmative Action. Yet in the end, that’s what we will be left with, when every special interest identity group that can be played off against the core population gets its own special ceremony and stops attending the general ceremony.
Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever, as George Wallace might say.
I leave you with this thought. Would these black students be so willing to have a separate graduation if it was imposed on them by the very forces their grandparents fought to overcome?
Do these black students have the foggiest notion about what’s happening in Africa at the moment? Would they be willing to go and live there?
