Let’s try to follow the logic of Progressives when it comes to racial segregation.
The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) laments that in the State of Mississippi “Segregating poor, black and Hispanic students from white and wealthy ones is not only intrinsically problematic, it means that they do not get the same high-quality resources as students at wealthier schools.” The SPLC argues that all students have a “constitutionally guaranteed right to an integrated education” and describes racial segregation in education as a “burden” under which students “suffer.” Hmmm… ok. Simple enough. So, racial segregation is bad because it harms Blacks and Mexicans.
But the Huffington Post, equally as Progressive as the SPLC, celebrates Harvard University’s first-ever Blacks-only graduation as a way to honor their racial “identity and struggle.” Huffpo describes the segregated ceremony for Blacks as a way to “reaffirm and uplift their community.” The liberal website goes on to write of the segregated graduation as an “opportunity to celebrate Harvard’s black excellence and black brilliance.” Hmmm… ok. Simple enough. So, racial segregation is good because it uplifts Blacks.
Now, which of these are true? Is segregation good or bad. Is it a burden or does it uplift? Does it cause suffering or is it an opportunity that should be celebrated?
It really is difficult to follow the logic of anti-Whites on the issue of segregation. They can’t seem to make up their minds. Let the Leftists try to reconcile their double-think on this and explain how segregation is “good for me but not for thee.” In the meantime let’s enjoy this clip from a bygone era of common sense.
