    U. Southern Maine Allegedly Encourages Students to Pledge Support to BLM Movement

    “the inconvenient truth is that history provides plenty of evidence that the lives of Black, Indigenous and People of Color haven’t mattered as much as white lives”

    Listen to this article

    If I had a kid who was a student at this school, and heard about this, I would yank them out immediately. This is cult-like thinking.

    Campus Reform reports:

    University asks students to ‘pledge to practice antiracist behaviors’ in full-throated endorsement of BLM movement

    The President’s Cabinet of the University of Southern Maine, including President Glenn Cummings and several other administrators, sent a message to its students pledging its support of the Black Lives Matter movement and encouraging students to do the same.

    The pledge cites late Georgia Congressman and civil rights icon John Lewis’ support of the movement and proclaims that “we must add our voices to the Black Lives Matter Movement.” The cabinet went on to condemn the phrase “all lives matter” as “hurtful” and claims that it “misses the point.”

    “We agree. And in support of Lewis’ declaration, the Movement itself, and Black, Indigenous and People of Color everywhere, we say Black Lives Matter. Period,” the announcement read.

    The pledge continued with an emboldened assertion that “the inconvenient truth is that history provides plenty of evidence that the lives of Black, Indigenous and People of Color haven’t mattered as much as white lives.”

    In defense of this claim, the cabinet asked its students to “please consider” a list of “realities.”

    On this list, the cabinet claims “Intentionally constructed and deeply ingrained racist policies continue to deny Black, Indigenous and People of Color access to education, employment, housing, healthcare, justice and voting — and increase their chances of incarceration” as well as “Too many syllabi feature perspectives that reflect and reinforce white privilege.”

    Intentionally constructed and deeply ingrained racist policies continue to deny Black, Indigenous and People of Color access to education, employment, housing, healthcare, justice and voting – and increase their chances of incarceration.

    Perhaps they could name one of those policies for us.

    Increase their chances of incarceration? If you don’t like the time don’t do the crime. Or is that racist?
