COLLEGE FIX
— Black student rejects victimhood status: ‘I am going to break stereotypes’ – WILLIAM NARDI (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, Democrats and RINOs shout at minorities, at women, at younger people, at veterans, and at everyone else that Republicans have caused, are causing, and will forever cause all the problems that minorities, women, younger people, veterans, and everyone else has had, are having, and will have.)
http://www.thecollegefix.com/post/29344/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: As a young, black woman, life on campus is not always easy for Roger Williams University freshman Kalasia Richer. But her hardships are not the result of slavery from years past – as her professors and peers like to insist – but instead from the current political persecution she says she faces for being a conservative on a liberal college campus. “I have been told since day one that I would not succeed without the demeaning benefits of affirmative action,” says Richer, 18. “One of my professors actually told me that it’s offensive to say that everyone can achieve the American dream.” Statements like these are common among the liberal academia, who teach that “systemic oppression” and “institutionalized racism” are the most significant factors of whether or not one will achieve success in life. But because Richer doesn’t but into it, she’s mocked and ridiculed and blackballed. “One of my classes is entirely structured around the so-called belief in ‘white privilege,’” she told The College Fix, referring to a humanities elective. “Professors shame white students from speaking up against it, and whenever I do they look at me like I’m a traitor.” According to Richer, a political science major, such classes victimize women of color and force other students to justify their current “oppression.” In an attempt to balance the political climate of her campus, Richer took a position as the secretary of a proposed chapter of the conservative Young Americans for Freedom group. But late last month, student government leaders refused to allow the club to officially be recognized on campus, accusing it of being too similar to the College Republicans. “I was disgusted by the hostility I felt for daring to give a voice to conservatives on campus,” she says. “College is advertised as a place for your mind to grow, but I didn’t realize how much of a lie it was until I saw firsthand how these ‘student leaders’ attempt to dictate how students think on campus.”)
