Simple it's a publicly funded college, so shut it down to show those idiots who's in charge.

These people have way to much time, and entitlement attitudes going on.

Wait till they have some adult responsibilities, kids, and a pile of bills to keep them occupied their ignorant asses will wish they were back in college.


You wouldn't believe how many responsible adults actually agree with their ideas and their methods.

It ain't just the college kids.

Age used to grant wisdom; but the global forum has infected local communities.

"White" is the default in America.

When I pick up a book and a new character is introduced, without even thinking picture them as white (unless the author says otherwise). That's some ingrained social programming right there that I freely admit. I'm not proud of it, but I'm willing to admit it.

That's how "default" whiteness is in America.


When I pick up a book from Japan, I immediately imagine a black person because #YBRacist.

You know, this whole 'white privilege' stuff needs to stop. It's nothing more than an excuse for laziness. We are all individuals, and everyone has strengths and weaknesses. The true measure of success is not what we're born with, but what we do with what we're born with. Anyone can sit down and blame others for lack of success. That's not an achievement.

George Washington Carver could have sat and whined about how the color of his skin was keeping him from achieving his full potential. It probably did at the time, but my God! at the good he did in spite of it! Stephen Hawking could have withered away in a wheel chair, but he chose to keep going... and every day he lives amazes doctors world-wide and brings him new insight. Albert Einstein could have grumbled his life away because he was just a lowly patent clerk, but he chose to pursue something greater and advanced our understanding of physics in ways that I think are even today yet to be realized. Martin Luther King Jr. could have given up because no one could see past the color of his skin, but he had a dream... and shared that dream... and the dream still lives even today. Rosa Parks could have stood up on that bus, taking the easy road, and then complained about the unfairness of it all, but she chose to stay seated and make a peaceful statement... and started a revolution that freed an entire race from societal oppression.

Notice that none of those examples ever became violent or hateful to anyone. Every single one simply refused to bow to despair and went forward with their lives.

Now compare that to what's happening, not just at Greenwood College, but at Berkeley and other colleges across the nation... indeed, at demonstrations outside colleges across the globe! Violence, begat by despair at reality, fueled by hysteria, supported by a burning desire to control what others think and do.

Want more black authors? Write a book! Want cleaner energy? Become an engineer and develop it! Want to make more money? Find a way to earn it! Want better news reporting? Become a journalist and report the news better!

The easiest thing in the world to do is complain. I know; I am as guilty of this as anyone. But unlike these poor misguided criminals at Greenwood, I pull myself out of that hole of despair when I realize I have fallen into it. I find a way to get what I need.

TarzanBeta above has it right; it's not just the college kids. It's every single one of us.

Um yeah.

This kind of stuff they go on whining about, its called human nature. That example there would be found in any society anywhere where there were a majority 'race' and a minority 'race' no matter the 'races' involved; while it isn't inherent there to be animosity / full blown hateful racial prejudice between every multirace society that ever was is or ever will be. So to get all hypersensitive and complain about it, play at triggering a hot civil war over it, is not unlike running down the street screaming and ripping out ones own hair over the fact that there exist at all different 'races' (and maybe we need to get along perhaps by not getting so offended by EVERYTHING).

Just because there will probably never be a place with exact ratios between the different 'races' doesnt mean every society should set about tearing themselves apart over stuff that shouldn't even bother anyone.

And like blacks by and large dont do the same kind of perception things towards whites, or Mexicans, or Chaldeans. Or Mexicans towards blacks etc.

There's a general blueprint to the way our perception works (amongst many other things), which is so hardwired its in our shared DNA. That doesn't inherently spell out prejudice HATE; it doesn't inherently mean the majority 'race' in any population is racial prejudiced; nor does it inherently mean that minorities in the same population aren't the same in such a regard.

These people are just taking the most tiny nuances and blowing them WAAAAAAAAAAY out of proportion; have no idea about real problems, real struggle; have no sense of humor; can never be satisfied no matter how much they might be given; are using this SJW platform to try and quell their own personal insecurity complexes at the expense of our entire society; are hopelessly incapable of taking anything in stride; are precisely everything they claim to be against by the very nature of being obsessed with IDENTITY Politics; ensure the opposite long term effects than they claim to be trying to enact by ramping up animosity between races (and genders, and so on); etc; etc; etc; etc; etc; etc.

I 'm thinking if they want a no whites day.. let them have it , then be done with it.

If that's what it takes for healing to take place over the atrocities they have experienced .. it is a small price to pay.

But if it is done to create more hate and division they are using same tactics used against them decades ago.

I fear it is the latter 😕

IT WONT SATISFY THEM.

Think about it: "they" (liberals) already had equal rights, and lopsided things like discrimination laws, and a black president (not to mention black mayors & city councils & police chiefs & so on in all the major cities they riot in), over 22 TRILLION dollars in welfare 'restitution', and gay marriage, and a solid trend of straight white males having the most downward expected career future than anybody else, over-representation in entertainment, and even transgender restrooms enforcement in even kindergarten restrooms, and etc, and so on.

What was their response? RABID CENSORSHIP, RIOTING, KIDNAPPING, TORTURE, MURDER, DESTRUCTION, LYNCH MOBS ROAMING THE STREETS, MASS MURDER, CIVIL WAR.

This is all the same kind of stuff that happened to the Jews right after the Nazi's seized power. And we all know how far the Nazi's had to go to be "satisfied". And we all know how that ended.

BLM, ANTIFA, we are witnessing the rise of left-wing hate groups in America.

The irony is impeccable. For years the liberal media has been pointing their fingers at right-wing boogeymen claiming Nazi's will be marching in the streets when Trump won, but in reality it's become the complete opposite.

They used to march against segregation, now they threaten violence in support of it. What happened to the modern Left? When did they become a parody of themselves?

Right?!

I mean we gave black people freedom from slavery and the right to vote, why do they still want more stuff like being treated equally without doing anything to earn it?!!

If they went about it the right way, maybe people would listen to them! All this marching with signs and stuff? That's hateful! That's scary stuff man! They're not happy with what they have, and that's pretty damn disrespectful!

I mean, if they just went about protesting and petitioning for equality in "approved" ways...(ways that probably won't accomplish anything) we wouldn't be where we at!

I mean, skin color doesn't have anything to do with anything. I'd change my skin color overnight to black just to prove to everyone how it doesn't matter!!! How about you? You on board with that idea if it was possible?

___________________________________

Reality check.

1. Blacks were kidnapped by their blacks in Africa and sold into slavery.
2. Whites fought gruesome battles to guarantee them their freedom. I was just reading the story of the Union forces taking Fort Fisher from the Confederates. Fort Fisher had so many cannons and bombproofs, palisades, minefields. Snipers picking off people. Hundreds of lives were lost. No ambulances. No anesthesia.

And the repayment for rescuing their ancestors from machete massacres like the 800,000 people killed by machetes between warring factions like the Tutsis and the Hutus is this...

...feeding white girls to alligators.

My name is Tarzan. I'm in a much more minor category.

Try being derided by all races over what's on your birth certificate.

But there are benefits: There ain't many Tarzans walking about.

How many people have said to me, "It's like... A Boy Named Sue".

So many things said... And done...

But it's part of the experience - My experience.

Wouldn't trade it for the world. Don't need to shout it from the roof tops. It is what it is.

Minorities get favoritism getting jobs. I started my own business because people laughed at my name during the application process.

Worked better for me.

How about this idea. Self-respect, self-reliance, obeying the law, not committing crime at a ridiculous high percentage, respect for human life, stop being racists, etc.

The facts are this...blacks and other non-whites are the largest percentage of crime, violence, etc. in America. They do nothing but take and give nothing back. They riot and while they should be gunned down are ignored. The left use them and they seem to enjoy being used. They are leaches, ticks and blood suckers (not all...but a high percentage).

I've met many responsible black people. The rest of you make them sick to their stomachs. You shame the good people with your victim agenda and your desire to take from the masses. Those of you who fall into that category ARE THE PROBLEM! And many of us are so sick of your crap that if you die...that is still a viable solution.

You can change that. But you have to be willing to do so. PROVE ME WRONG!!! I beg you! I doubt you have the spirit, willingness or intelligent to do so. PROVE ME WRONG! Make yourselves respectable, part of the solution, become part of America.

PROVE ME WRONG!

Fort Fisher, on Confederate Point, nicknamed the "Gibraltar of the Confederacy", was a formidable target commanding the Cape Fear River. It encompassed 14,500 ft.² and was surrounded by a 10-foot parapet and a network of bombproofs, most of which were 30 feet high. Many obstructions were laid around it, including land mines (called torpedoes in this era), abatis, and deep ditches. There were more than 50 heavy cannon, including 15 Columbiads and a 150-pounder Armstrong gun, behind a 60-foot mound of earth near the sea, named the Mound Battery. The fort's garrison of 1,400 men was commanded by Colonel William Lamb. Additional reinforcements were available from General Braxton Bragg at Sugar Loaf, 4 miles away. This force consisted of Major General Robert F. Hoke's division from the Army of Northern Virginia, which arrived on December 23.

en.wikipedia.org...

The attack, however, drew Confederate attention away from the river gate, where Ames prepared to launch his attack. At 2:00 p.m. he sent forward his first brigade, under the command of Brevet Brigadier Newton Martin Curtis, as Ames waited with the brigades of colonels Galusha Pennypacker and Louis Bell. An advance guard from Curtis's brigade used axes to cut through the palisades and abatis. Curtis's brigade took heavy casualties as it overran the outer works and stormed the first traverse. At this point Ames ordered Pennypacker's brigade forward, which he accompanied into the fort. As Ames marched forward, Confederate snipers zeroed in on his party, and cut down a number of his aides from around him. Pennypacker's men fought their way through the riverside gate, and Ames ordered a portion of his men to fortify a position within the interior of the fort. Meanwhile, the Confederates turned the cannons in Battery Buchanan at the southern tip of the peninsula and fired on the northern wall as it fell into Union hands. Ames observed that Curtis's lead units had become stalled at the fourth traverse, and he ordered forward Bell's brigade, but Bell was killed by sharpshooters before ever reaching the fort.[18] Seeing the Union attackers crowd into the breach and interior, Whiting took the opportunity to personally lead a counterattack. Charging into the Union soldiers, Whiting received multiple demands to surrender, and when he refused he was shot down, severely wounded
