I remember there was a huge drop in enrollment at the University of Missouri after administrators let the students get away with similar nonsense.

As a person of color, that was raised apart from my birth "culture", this foments some very unique emotions (none healthy or positive).

Affirmative action is to blame for part of this, but WTF?

The future is none too bright.

They are making a difference- just not the difference they'd like to be making. Their protests will result in less sympathy for whatever cause they're fighting for.

yeah i get that.  i'm all for people fighting for what they believe in.  this just works against them.  the videos that people are putting up and their speeches (rants, yelling) just paint them in a really bad light.  This applies to a lot of topics.  They had the time to try to organize an event, why not take the time to do things in a manner that doesn't make them look bad? 

(not sure if i'm wording that correctly.  god english is hard)

Yes, it's almost as if this kind of thing is happening quite often this days and it represents a kind of trend or movement in American universities that could turn out to be a significant threat to Western society.

Nah, just the right exaggerating things as usual.

Yea, when I see this shit happening back home it makes me question whether or not I want to go back, and it makes me really question if I want to go back to school to earn my PhD. As much as that has been a goal of mine, universities look like an insane place to go these days.

It's more like "look at these idiots and their nonsensical identity politics" Then you come along and shout nonsensical identity politics.

don't let this stuff slow you down on getting your PhD.  i'm hoping the younger generation watching this stuff will something productive.  i see stuff like this and just have to hope cooler heads will prevail.

Ever stop to think how dumb you all look feeling superior in your wisdom to a bunch of 18 year old kids?

It'd be nice if the staff on campus took this attitude as well instead of taking insults and pandering to their every whim, though I guess they're afraid for their jobs.

Yeah sure and there's war and famine and global warming and so on....it is  possible to be concerned about more than one thing at the same time. We all went to university in the West (however long ago) and are currently in education, some of us at universities, so it's a more immediate subject than others.

i hope the staff does take the time to talk to their students.  conversation is important, but just going off of the videos being released, the students don't want to have a conversation.  hopefully they will work it out where nobody has to lose theirs jobs.

Baby Aubergine, seriously, phoque off.

What if I told you it has nothing to do with their skin colour?

It's what they say, you knob. But, no, I just want to yell at black people. I hate black people. I don't like the colour of their skin. It is dark, I'm not. Therefore, I hate them.

Seriously, do you listen to yourself?

Eggfart, too true. We all went there, we're all educators. Close to home, mate.
