More oppressed than thou, you bastard

I’m really ashamed these days to have had anything to do with such places. Shhhhh:

Last month’s University of California Students of Color Conference demonstrates why. UCLA student Jacqueline Alvarez reports:

According to their mission statement, SOCC’s major goal was to “create a space to discuss, dissect, and create relevant solutions to issues surrounding students of color.”

Uzhas!  I just swore in Russian. It means ‘nightmare’ but with an edge. It’s a most effective rejoinder.

The crux of the debate centered around the conference theme: “Fighting Anti-Blackness.” Apparently it was not communicated to students that the conference would have a particular theme this year.

I’m sitting at the keyboard, hands over face, slowly rocking back and forth, a bit difficult to maintain if one is typing.

At the event, held at UC Irvine, students of different minority groups began arguing when it became known that the conference would focus almost exclusively on discrimination against the African American community.

Four Yorkshiremen?

This exchange, and others like it, resulted in the cancellation of several sessions on the second day of the conference, Alvarez said. Above all, conference participants each wanted to focus on their own particular minority issue, she said.

Where do they find the spare time?

    Just when you think they can’t surprise you with their self-centredness, they go and do this. If anything it proves that the minorities have only one thing in common, hatred of whites.

      Not sure tis, I think it’s merely instead of accepting they have equality, they all want special treatment above and beyond what anyone else is getting. The irony that having a society specifically for black/gay/green people is in itself exclusive, racist and igoted. Can you imagine a ‘white people only club’?

    Errol – “racist and igoted”

    It may be a typo but as a derivative of “ignorant” it makes a nice new word!
