Students Want To Exclude Whites From Their ‘Social Justice’ Mission

A group of students at the University of Michigan feels that there is simply not enough space on campus for them to engage in what they describe as ‘social justice efforts,’ so they have put together a list of demands to rectify this perceived injustice. The students would like a segregated ‘safe’ space for them to gather in, and they presented the demand to university officials. That didn’t go over too well, so they’ve decided to go the petition route.

As the Daily Mail reports, the petition has attracted 134 signatures thus far.

“Our president has blatantly ignored us and it is time for us to speak up. We have been told that our demands are "rude,” the petition reads in part.

Rude is certainly one way to describe the demands, as there is more than enough space on campus for social justice warriors to congregate.

“We are calling on someone to care about students’ concerns and to lead us with integrity and help us fight against the oppression and hateful acts that try to destroy us and our community,” it continues.

In fairness to the students that are making the demands, they claim their actions stem from a number of racial incidents on campus. While that’s certainly unacceptable, the proper way to deal with that is to bring it to the attention of campus authorities and allow them to eradicate any problems. Seeking out an exclusive space does little to combat the evils of racism. In fact, it may only enhance it.

“We want documentation of past, current, and future student activism and this should be a permanent space that is staffed, and has resources for students to organize and share resources,” the demands go on to say.

The students are well within their rights to organize, mobilize and speak out against issues they feel passionately about, but to suggest that the university should be on the hook for a fully staffed and exclusive space just for them is beyond ludicrous.
