Default Harvard students plan graduation ceremony for blacks only, claim it’s ‘not about segr

Aaaaaaaand from the 'Dumbest sh*t I'll read all week' files....

"We're gonna have an all-black event but it's not segregation."

I can understand idiotic crap from Ohio State University; but Harvard? Aren't these kids supposed to be the smart ones and above moronic comments?

I'm gonna have non-consensual sex with a chick tonight; but it's not rape.

Huggins also described the blacks-only graduation ceremony as an opportunity to celebrate Harvard’s “black excellence” and “black brilliance” but insisted that the event is not is segregation from Harvard University graduates who are not black.

“This is not about segregation. It’s about fellowship and building a community. This is a chance to reaffirm for each other that we enter the work world with a network of supporters standing with us. We are all partners,” Huggins said.

And the dumb ass liberals will fall for this crap.....

If the white students said something this unbelievably stupid the university would most likely hold back their diploma's, and make them take sensitivity training.

Notice how the liberal section keeps its mouth shut about this until some other simpleton rebuttal post chimes in.

As long as you get riled up over this I'm cool with it.

BTW do you know how New York University started? Back in the early 20th century Harvard would only let so many Jews in. So a Jewish guy in NYC said screw that I'll start my own Harvard here. And to this day it is one of the best in the world. And I'm a very prod alum.

I don't think this is about starting a new university. It's about creating a mock ceremony after the real ceremony. That mock degree and 5 bucks won't get you a double deluxe mocha grande at Starbucks.

When the Boy Scouts said the same about not letting in gays, the ACLU came running...

I have a feeling they're sittin this one out...
