Default Rice University Black Student's Demands

https://www.scribd.com/document/4665...ot-an-Option-2

That's a seriously ridiculous list of demands.
I especially like #5 (a Black House specifically for black students) and #9 (Black students must be allowed to have a black roommate if desired). It's almost as if they are racist and want segregation.

A couple of those things are pretty much basic, but prefacing it with 'demand' pretty much undermines what they are putting forth.

Then they get into the ridiculous.

From what I have read, almost all of their "demands" are ridiculous. I would suggest that if that University is so bad, they should transfer to schools more to their liking.

Just imagine if white students at Texas Southern University Thurgood Marshall School of Law demanded a "White House" for white students and that white students must be allowed a white roommate if desired. Or demanded the exact same things but changed every reference of 'black' to 'white'.
For people that don't know, it is an historically black college.

That is exactly what they want....

"Black this and black that"....

Hmmm....

Lets see # 7 wants better lighting for pictures.....Don't want to be too black...
The hypocrisy of that is stunning....

As for #1, they demand more blacks to be in Rice, ok I demand more black kids achieve higher grades for acceptance....

Rice is a school for smart kids and dumbing down the standard so more black kids get in is a horrible idea for the students and the university....


I say no and if they don't like it go find another school to attend....

I agree.

I think it was Walter E. Williams (a black professor of economics) that pointed out universities that give 'extra entrance credit' for being black have a higher black student drop-out rate. His point was that the black students can't compete academically based upon points awarded for skin color and they would be better off attending a school where they can compete (and complete) academically based upon their academic ability.

All of those listed are of a racist caliber.
