The University of Colorado Boulder is creating a special new residence hall that will segregate black people away from the general student population.
Officials at the taxpayer-funded school have announced a plan to transform Hallett Hall, a campus residence hall, into three separate “Living Learning Communities” beginning this fall, reports Campus Reform.
One of these “Living Learning Communities” will be set aside exclusively for “black-identified students and their allies.”
A second segregated community, “Multicultural Perspectives” will be for “students passionate about diversity.”
The third segregated community at CU Boulder, which already exists, is dormitory ghetto called “Spectrum” which is reserved only for “LGBTQIA-identifying students.” The unwieldy acronym “LGBTQIA” stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (or transsexual), queer, intersex and asexual (or ally).
Together, the three segregated residential territories at Hallett Hall will be called a “Social Justice Living Environment.”
The “Living Learning Community” for “black-identified students and their allies” will provide a “supportive, social and communal space for students” who identify with “elements of the African & Black Diaspora,” according to the CU Boulder housing and dining services website.
“Students gain access to artifacts, critical conversation and educational programming that create an inclusive and productive atmosphere within the residence hall,” the housing website explains.
“We are beyond excited for the introduction of this new program and the opportunity to build communities grounded in intercultural dialogue,” Bradley also explains as she describes the dorms segregated by race and sexual preference.
“I’m looking forward to meeting the incoming students, hearing their stories and learning about their passion for social justice,” a resident assistant at the dorm, Valerie Gao, says in the press release.
“As both a woman and a student of color, I know that we have a lot of work to do, and I want to play a part in helping to promote those changes within the residence halls,” a second resident assistant, Jaela Zellars, says.
Resident assistants in the “Social Justice Living Environment” of Hallett Hall will go by the title of “peer mentors.”
CU Boulder is most famous, of course, for launching an on-campus spying apparatus in 2015 that encourages students to report incidents of “bias” to government officials at the school. The point of the “Bias Incident Reporting” scheme is to make the campus free of “demeaning and hurtful statements.”
School officials have advertised the campaign with posters featuring demeaning and hurtful statements that denigrate various cultures and ethnic groups. “Go back to Africa, you don’t belong here,” one school-funded poster has read. “Your mom must be the janitor ’cause that’s the only job for dirty Mexicans,” a second poster has declared. Except for the hateful language in the posters, there appears to be no evidence that anyone on the CU Boulder campus has ever said these things.
