Well that didn’t last long, now did it?
Last week, a group of black students at the University of California, Santa Cruz, calling themselves the Afrikan/Black Student Alliance (A/BSA), took over an administrative building and refused to leave unless their list of demands were met.
It only took three days before officials caved, with nary a whimper of protest. The demands were:
- All black and Caribbean-identified students be given a 4-year housing guarantee to live in the Rosa Parks African-American Themed House.
- Reopen the building’s lounge.
- Paint its exterior the “Pan-Afrikan colors” of red, green and black
- Force all incoming students to UC Santa Cruz to undergo mandatory diversity competency training
After the university folded, Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends” reported:
“The student demonstrators raised a number of issues with campus leaders, issues we fundamentally agree upon,” UC Santa Cruz Chancellor George Blumenthal said in a May 4 memo.
“Students from historically underrepresented communities deal with real challenges on campus and in the community. These difficulties include things that many people take for granted, such as finding housing or even just a sense of community.”
Less than a week after the University caved, the students once again approached officials, like a waif with his soup bowl extended. But rather than imploring, “Please Sir, may I have some more?” the students demand. Those demands come with a hefty price tag, of course:
- We demand the University purchase a property located at or near the base of campus (High Street) to serve as a low-income housing cooperative for historically disadvantaged students. We demand this property have 4 bedrooms with appropriate furnishings. This property will then be student ran and student operated by the Afrikan Black Student Alliance. We demand a written agreement to fund this project by beginning of spring quarter.
- We demand the University allocate an additional $100,000 to the SOAR/Student Media/Cultural Arts and Diversity (SOMeCA for the hiring of advisor who has personal and professional experience handling African/Black/Caribbean student issues) permanently. We demand A/BSA has a final decision on who is hired for this position.
The group said that they’ll take over another building unless those demands are met by the Fall 2017 term.
The A/BSA also claimed that the university wasn’t complying with the spirit of one of their original demands.
“Additionally, there was an earlier demand for the creation of a Black Studies department on this campus. The Administration has not agreed to the creation of a Black Studies department, and has instead agreed to the creation of a Black Studies Minor or Major. While some may want to commend this Administration for their seeming agreeance [sic], the truth of the matter is that what they have agreed to has not come into existence, as it still only exists in ‘white man’s promise’, and as of today, the program, whether a Minor or a Major, has not been established at UCSC.”
Although it’s the university that will be spending hundreds of thousands of dollars if they meet the group’s demands, the students claim that they’re the ones being generous.
“We do recognize these demands may take a little more time, and in the spirit of generosity — which we are almost all out of — we want to make it clear that we are giving the Administration a little more time to meet these demands.”
Liberals who perceive themselves as victims will never stop whining, and other liberals with a misplaced sense of guilt will never stop giving.
And cheap suits will never stop folding into an unidentifiable heap.
