(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 an attempt to achieve “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 “a permanent designated space on central campus for Black students and students of color to organize and do social justice work.”
The demand is one of several lodged by “Students4Justice,” who this month ratcheted up campus demonstrations to pressure administrators to cave, complaining in a newly launched petition 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 university builds 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, “because we want a space solely dedicated to community organizing and social justice work specifically for people of color.”
“We 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,” 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 whites 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 of all races and ethnicities. The Marxist Left is obviously using identity politics to divide and conquer the masses; that tactic cannot be allowed to work in a nation that supposedly prides itself on being a beacon of freedom and liberty for 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 of waiting for “change,” they will simply attempt to force their will on the country.
