WTH! University of Connecticut Turning Back Time – Essentially Segregating Students by Doing This!

It was only a few decades ago that people were fighting to end segregation in our schools. Now, thanks to race-obsessed liberals, schools are going back to segregation, with the University of Connecticut leading the way.

From next fall, ScHOLA²RS House – which stands for ‘Scholastic House of Leaders who are African American Researchers and Scholars’ – will offer accommodation for 43 male African-American undergraduates on Storrs campus.

The university claim the move is to boos minority applicants and graduation rates and is ‘no more segregated… than putting individuals with common interests together,’ Vice Provost Sally Reis told Fox News.

But others appear to see it as a backwards step after decades of progress against segregation.

Niger Innis, the national spokesperson for the Congress of Racial Equality, branded the decision ‘troubling’.

‘If (students) want to go to an institution that is racially diverse and integrated, then racial diversity and integration is part of it,’ he told told Fox News. ‘To have a university-sanctioned segregation or separation is, to me, a bit troubling.’

President and General Counsel of the Center for Equal Opportunity Roger Clegg told Insidehighered.com, called for universities to forget about the ‘nonsense’ and to ‘just treat students without regard to skin color.’

‘Schools shouldn’t be using race as a proxy for who’s at risk and who’s going to have a hard time as a student.’

… Professor Erik Hines, who will become faculty adviser to ScHOLA²RS House students next fall, said that if the move was successful the university could create more groups based on race, such as a Hispanic or white-only community.

They could also bring in houses for people based in gender or different cultures.

… ‘Had no idea this was a thing but it seems like a terrible idea. The fact that UConn is considering racially segregated housing is ridiculous. What a great way to ensure people don’t leave their comfort zones or get exposed to people of different backgrounds,’ wrote The_Pressure on the UConn Reddit forum.

Esen Taishi added: ‘Wow. I’m just finding it amazing that African Americans are now the in the position to be the group clamoring for segregated spaces. I just find it mind blowing. How do people not see the irony in this?’

Another Reddit user, George_Cant-Stand-Ya, also denounced it as ‘racist.’

‘Where is the Caucasian learning community? This is bogus. If there was a Caucasian learning community, it would be a national headline. But an all-black learning community is totally acceptable. That, is racist. That, is discrimination.’

Martin Luther King, Jr. must be rolling over in his grave right now. It’s really sad that the liberal focus now is on keeping people of different races separate and fanning flames of racial division, rather than promoting tolerance and inclusion.
