Learning history is not required. Liberals are paying a lot of money to ignore it.
On August 28, 1963, the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr, delivered his famous “I have a dream” speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C.
His words to the black community brought hope in their fight for equality and justice.
I say to you today, my friends, though, even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up, live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.”
I have a dream that my four little chi1dre!Il will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream that one day in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of interposition and nullification, one day right there in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.
On college campuses where liberals struggle for social equality and social justice, there is a different way.
Scripps and Claremont colleges cost over $50,000 a year in tuition.
Self-segregated spaces and events exclusively for POC are increasingly common across the Claremont Colleges. Pitzer College’s Climbing Club is hosting an event later this month off campus for POC only. The event’s description begins by saying, “Are you a person of color? Have you ever wanted to try climbing, but felt intimidated by the predominantly white space that is the climbing community?” and tells members to “bring all of your POC identifying friends for a fun, FREE, night of climbing! … This is a closed event for POC identifying people only,” with the caveat that for white members being excluded, “expect another climb night in the near future open to everyone.”
If you decide to ignore history, you are doomed to repeat it. The schools are happy to take the money to keep it that way.
