Princeton University Held Hispanics-Only Graduation Ceremony

, Spencer Irvine, 2 Comments

A Hispanics-only graduation ceremony is a thing, apparently:

Princeton’s Carl A. Fields Center for Equality and Cultural Understanding, which is dedicated to acknowledging and questioning “race, class, privilege, and culture at Princeton and beyond,” is hosting a “Latinx graduation ceremony” for graduates on June 4.

“Latinx” is a gender-neutral version of the words “Latino” and “Latina.” By being neither feminine nor masculine, it also includes Latinos who do not identify as male or female.

    Does one need to actually be Hispanic or what about if you just Feel Hispanic.? Did they qualify?

    Isn’t a Latinx-only graduation a bit exclusive and divisive? How does that have a place in a community striving to be inclusive? Can someone please explain the need for this?
