In what would be attacked as “racist” if done by whites, a blacks-only dormitory is being built at the University of Connecticut’s campus with the official endorsement of that college’s authorities.
Known as the SCHOLA2RS House—which stands for the “Scholistic [sic] House Of Leaders who are African Amercian [sic] Researchers and Scholars,” the blacks-only dorm is only open to those who “who identify as African American/Black.”
According to Dr. Erik M. Hines, Faculty Director and Assistant Professor in the Department of Educational Psychology at UConn, the reason why they’re creating this blacks-only living space is because blacks do so poorly at academics that he believes they will do better in an “African American” environment.
“African American males graduate at a lower rate than their peers,” said Hines, adding that the graduation rate for all UConn students was 82.5 percent, whereas for blacks it was only 54 percent.
Hines, who will serve as faculty advisor to the 40 students involved with the project, went on to say that SCHOLA2RS House is “a space for African American men to one, come together and validate their experiences that they may have on campus.” [sic]
“Number two, it’s also a space where they can have conversation and also talk with individuals who come from the same background who share the same experience.”
Stripped of all the verbiage, what Hines is actually saying is that just being in the presence of whites somehow makes blacks do poorly at school, and that the only way this can be remedied is for blacks to have their own dorm.
Needless to say, all the UConn students and academics who turned out late last year to vociferously protest what they thought was “white racism,” have remained completely silent on this overtly blacks-only dorm plan.
In addition, the controlled media—which would critically feast on the story for months if any college built a “whites-only” dorm—have remained completely silent or even sympathetic to the “blacks-only” dorm plan.
Blacks—and all racial groups for that matter—have a right to ethnocentric education, and even completely separate education if they so wish.
However, it is significant that the establishment and controlled media condone and actively support any such separation when carried out by nonwhites—but will viciously attack any whites who express a desire to create a space where “white men come together and validate their experiences that they may have on campus.”
