MLK is rolling over in his grave. Racism is the solution for racism. Only in the mind of a libtard.

There was a time in America when racial discrimination and segregation were not only supported by the government but mandated. Restaurants had separate areas for Black and white Americans, people were only allowed to use restrooms and water fountains that were specifically designated by their skin color, and Black and white students were taught in separate school systems. It wasn't until after the Supreme Court's Brown v. Board of Education ruling in 1954 that the nation began integrating its educational institutions and healing the wounds caused by the Jim Crow era, edging closer to a society that does not judge individuals based on their skin color or ethnicity.

But fast forward to 2022 and the pendulum has swung hard in the opposite direction. Today, in the name of "equity," there is a major push to incorporate elements of the thinking that was pervasive in the Jim Crow era into today's K-12 schools, but this time from people who cast themselves as social justice warriors, who are bringing race-conscious schooling back in the name of fighting racism.

Many school districts now promote racial affinity groups, which the Great Schools Partnership defines as "a group of people sharing a common race who gather with the intention of finding connection, support, and inspiration." The ostensible purpose of these groups is to "provide participants support to survive the racial isolation that exists in many schools and institutions."

Affinity groups are typically based on shared interests, but racial affinity groups are specifically designed to provide activities and meetings that include or exclude students based on their skin color.

Do things ever go back to normal? The problem is the younger generation of college kids thinks this right, because it's shoved down their throat every day. Young people are full of piss and vinegar and get a riled up about this crap because it's force fed to them that it's true.

Could you imagine if a conservative college did something like this, of what it's like to be a young white conservative who has to be surrounded in a school promoting the myth of white privilege and inherent racism. The only difference is that an affinity group for conservative college students going to Cal Berkley would be accurate considering this shit goes on today.

But what has been long gone is segregation in schools. The last sentence in your 3rd paragraph says the affinity group is to show what it's like to survive racial isolation that exists in many schools and institutions......What a crock of shit. Show me where racial isolation exists today in any college for people of color. But was does exist is being condemned if you're a conservative not going along with the views of thousands of liberal students you are surrounded by.
