(NationalSentinel) American universities during the 1960s became flash points of social justice movements promoting civil rights and opposing the Vietnam War. They were considered all-inclusion zones and bastions of free speech.
Not anymore. Today’s college campuses have been hijacked by the Marxist Left, and instead of being zones of inclusion and freedom of expression, they are fast becoming exclusive, overtly racist and authoritarian.
Now, a group of student “activists” are demanding the University of Michigan set aside a “no whites” space as part of anÂ attempt to achieveÂ “social justice” – as if there is still more to be done in the U.S. along those lines.
A student activist group at the University of Michigan is demanding campus officials provide them with â€œa permanent designated space on central campus for Black students and students of color to organize and do social justice work.â€
The demand is one of several lodged by â€œStudents4Justice,â€ who this month ratcheted upÂ campusÂ demonstrationsÂ to pressure administrators to cave, complaining in a newly launchedÂ petitionÂ that President Mark Schlissel has snubbed their demands.
The clamor for a segregated space for students of color to organize social justice efforts comes even as the public universityÂ buildsÂ a $10 million center for black students in the center of campus.
In their demands, students explain why the new black student center is not enough, â€œbecause we want a space solely dedicated to community organizing and social justice work specifically for people of color.â€
â€œWe want documentation of past, current, and future student activism and this should be a permanent space that is staffed, and has resources for students to organize and share resources,â€ the demand letter states.

It should be obvious by now that no matter what “demands” are met by the perpetually angry Marxist Left, they are never good enough, never go far enough and never exclude majority whitesÂ enough. It’s not a subject that people like to talk much about, but the fact is, these “social justice” movements are nothing more than institutionalized racism against the white majority disguised as a “civil rights” movement.
It’s grotesque, it’s wrong, and frankly, it should be offensive to people ofÂ all races and ethnicities. The Marxist Left is obviously using identity politics to divide and conquer the masses; that tactic cannot be allowed toÂ work in a nation that supposedly prides itself on being a beacon of freedom and liberty forÂ all the world’s people.
Americans concerned about the direction of their country and the division these Leftists continue to sow on our university campuses sit idly by and watch – without taking any action to oppose it – at their peril. At some point this “movement” will explode into full-on violence, because the Marxist Left will eventually get tired ofÂ waiting for “change,” theyÂ will simply attempt to force theirÂ will on the country.
