A building at Princeton University apparently has “cultural affinity spaces,” which are designated areas where students of one racial minority can talk or study, according to Campus Reform. There’s a black affinity space, a Hispanic one, a Middle Eastern one, etc. But some Princeton students were pretty annoyed to find white students hanging out in spaces for other racial groups.
It’s very ironic that segregation is now the progressive thing to do in the current year 2018. Isn’t desegregation what diversity is all about?
Now, to be clear, Princeton doesn’t prohibit students from entering an affinity space with an identity to which they don’t belong. You just get maybe 15 minutes of public stoning. No, I’m kidding — there’s no punishment except for the social censure of your peers, who, when they can’t segregate themselves, really, really suffer.
One student, Saran Touré, said that when she wants to cry, she wants to go to a room filled only with people of her own race. And if people from a different race are there, she feels uncomfortable. Isn’t that just a bit disturbing? That she’s only comfortable showing that emotion around people who have the same amount of melanin that she has? Guys, this is just how DEEP the cancer of social justice runs. Contrary to its purported mission of UNITING races, at the end of the day, it’s stripping away people’s very ability to empathize with those who look different.
Princeton Prof: Trump ‘Enacting Terror’ On Illegal Aliens
Princeton professor Eddie Glaude claimed that not only is President Trump motivated by cruelty — you know, not only is he just a big meanypants — but he’s actually, in fact, committing terrorism, reported Campus Reform.
That’s right, conservabros, Trump is the real terrorist. I feel like how libs must feel when Dinesh D’Souza says “Democrats are the real racists.” Anyways, Eddie was referring to Twitter comments Trump made Monday in which he said that “next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States. They will be removed as fast as they come in.”
You’ll notice there’s no mention of the wall there but back to the whole parents separated by kids talking point. Yes, some parents may be scared that this will happen, but if you’ve come over legally, there’s nothing to fear. See, this is what we call a deterrent. We know catch and release has been a catastrophe because, shocker, there’s no incentive for illegals to come back for their court date. What’s the risk of coming over if you know there will be absolutely no consequences for your actions?
Remember that this isn’t the only Princeton professor who seemingly wants to scrap the whole notion of borders. I’ve reported before on fellow African American studies professor Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, who’s tweeted “abolish ICE,” as well as “No human is illegal. Open the border. Let them all in.”
Princeton Prof: ‘Abolish ICE’
On the night of the State of the Union address, Princeton professor Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor said “Abolish ICE,” as well as “Trump, the cynical racist president who hides behind African American suffering through the criminal justice system, to bear [sic] his teeth at immigrants and argue for his wall of white supremacy.”
“Wall of white supremacy.” How long have we had to put up with this disingenuous attempt to frame the wall as a racial issue instead of a legal vs. illegal immigration one? And if you think abolishing ICE sounds just a wee bit radical, remember that Keeanga is the same professor who previously said “no human is illegal. Open the border. Let them all in.”
There’s another pretty tired trope: that calling someone an illegal alien somehow equals stripping them of their humanity. You know, Keeanga probably whines a lot about illusory white privilege, but the one privilege she definitely has is class privilege. Something tells me those illegals Keeanga so desperately wants to let into the country — which, with an open border, would cease to be a country at all — something tells me those people aren’t going to be competing for jobs with the Princeton professor.
But they might be competing to be Keeanga’s maid, a Princeton custodian who cleans her office, etc., which means the professor or her institution will get to save a few bucks replacing an American worker with an immigrant who’s used to a lower standard of living. Progressives aren’t just embracing open border policies to virtue-signal or exercise some deranged anti-white hatred. No, it’s also in their financial interest to push these views. Boy have I become woke reading Tucker Carlson’s Ship of Fools.
Princeton Students Cut ‘Misogynistic’ Little Mermaid Song
The Tigertones, a Princeton University a cappella group, perform “Kiss the Girl,” a song from The Little Mermaid, reported Campus Reform.
But not everyone’s a fan. Princeton student Noa Wollstein wrote an op-ed in the student paper calling the song “misogynistic.” Noa says that “even when gently crooned by an animated crab, the song…is more misogynistic and dismissive of consent than cute.”
She notes that a sea-witch had cursed Ariel, taking her voice away and making the mermaid unable to give verbal consent. But if you’ve seen the scene from The Little Mermaid, you’ll remember that Ariel’s expressions make her feelings pretty obvious.
Leaning in for a kiss, looking dejected when Eric backs out, giving a big ol’ goofy smile, and grabbing his hand, that doesn’t exactly look like sexual assault, folks.
But what does Noa want? Well, when the Princeton Tigertones sing “Kiss the Girl,” they pick a male and female audience member to act out the parts of Ariel and Eric. This means that they’re persuaded to kiss at the end of the song.
The student columnist says she’s seen many female students not happy with the practice and she asked the Tigertones to stop singing the song. The a cappella group complied, but here’s the thing: who’s responsible here? Peer pressure’s really annoying, don’t get me wrong, but if students at an Ivy League institution can’t even cope with that, I’m a bit worried about our next generation of leaders.
