Evergreen State College Student Newspaper has Section that Bars White Student Submissions

, Accuracy in Academia, 3 Comments

Apparently, Evergreen State College’s student newspaper felt it’s appropriate to have a non-white student op-ed section in their newspaper:

The student newspaper at Evergreen State College has a section in its opinion pages described as “for people of color by people of color.”

“This should be a place where we can be us without it being overshadowed by the dark cloud that is living under white supremacy and having to see things from a white perspective. This is why when we do cover these issues it will be in the context and from the perspective of POC and POC only,” according to the section’s editors as they reintroduced it to readers in September.

    Given that the minority viewpoint has been often overlooked in American discourse(African and Native American, Oriental and Hispanic) then why shouldn’t this be redressed?

    It’s odd that “liberals” are now supporting segregation. Another example are blacks only safe spaces at colleges… Looking forward to turning away anybody who hands me a resume with Evergreen Alumni cited in the education section, regardless of race.

    The liberals are just going back to their roots but in reverse. Democrats started the KKK and fought to keep slavery. They are now fighting to segregate again but hold one race higher than another. Equality in the 60’s with MLK and others was not enough. Now they want everything handed to them and move the dial to being ‘superior’. I don’t understand the whole white supremacy is the problem. What problem? Where? How is it manifesting itself? Equal playing field exists everywhere and now blacks and other minorities have MORE than whites. All black colleges, special compensation for exams, signing up for college bonuses and discounts and the list goes on and on. How is this NOT racist?
