Ithaca College protests and demands president step down because of … racism.
And the copy cat outrage spreads. You know, because racism!
Students at Ithaca College have started to protest the college president days after University of Missouri students successfully got their president to step down.
The protest was organized by the group People of Color at Ithaca College to express their concerns about racism on campus. They called for a vote of no confidence against Ithaca President Tom Rochon, as well as for Rochon to step down.
During the protests earlier today, The Ithaca Journal reports, one student asked, “How can a campus dedicated to preparing us for the real world not actively foster growth to our consciousness of oppression and privilege?”
There was a die-in and a silent demonstration amid the day of protests, all to get administrators to take their concerns seriously.
No mention of their concerns or their legitimacy, but hey, Mizzu’s weren’t legitimate and look how that turned out. As one person wrote, no one claims to have seen the “poopswastica” supposedly found on a bathroom wall in a day and time when students take pictures and videos of themselves clipping their fingernails. But somehow the phantom swastica wasn’t recorded (Nor has anyone come forward to claim to have seen it).
So if that worked for Mizzu, why not Ithaca? After all, racial claims carry weight, just because … or at least they used too. Until too many incidents were proven to be the work of minorities themselves. But hey, if you’re a college student, you’re sure you know what racism is and you’ve been assured by the “victims” that it exists everywhere. Therefore its as credible an excuse as any to get rid of a president.
Yup … the inmates are running the asylum.
Of course the irony and the humor is to be found in the fact that these little islands of insanity are the product of the professors and administration.
