I have always heard that the University of Michigan was home to the geniuses of the world, you know, like Gerald Ford. But I guess what I have always heard about the U of M was just an advertising gimmick, since many of its so-called “brilliant” students are now responding like ignorant, paranoid racist-sheep:
Non-White Students At University Of Michigan Demand Segregation
Student activists at the University of Michigan are insisting on their own “permanent designated space on central campus for Black students and students of color to organize and do social justice work,” The College Fix reports.
This latest demand is just the beginning for “Students4Justice,” who are waging war against the academic institution with sit-ins this month to try to force the university’s administration to comply with their demands. They have also distributed a petition saying that the school’s president, Mark Schlissel, refuses to take them seriously.
The students of color are adamant about being segregated, just as the taxpayer-funded university is completing construction on a new $10 million black student center.
The students say the student center is quite nice but insufficient for their needs, “because we want a space solely dedicated to community organizing and social justice work specifically for people of color.”
The students continued in a demand letter that “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.”
They also want increased assistance for “marginalized” students who are allegedly victims of “oppressive attacks,” more “Black, Arab and PoC” faculty hired, better reporting of “bias incidents,” and more financial aid for poor students.
“Our president has blatantly ignored us and it is time for us to speak up. We have been told that our demands are ‘rude,’” states a Facebook post. “We are calling on someone to care about students’ concerns and to lead us with integrity and help us fight against the oppression and hateful acts that try to destroy us and our community.”
Though leaders of the Students4Justice were not available for comment, a campus spokesman did inform The College Fix that “at this point, our colleagues in Student Life have been working with the Students4Justice leaders to better understand their concerns. This is our normal process.”
Michigan hasn’t broadcast the news that students on their campus are advocating neo-segregation, but the story leaked our through the Michigan Review, a student news service that first reported the ongoing conflict.

The Daily Caller Presents: The 12 DUMBEST EVER ‘Bias Incidents’ On America’s College Campuses
In the last few years, more than 230 American colleges and universities — 143 of them lavishly funded by taxpayers — have launched bias reporting systems encouraging students to report each other for incidents of offensive speech and other kinds of “bias.”
The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) published an exhaustive survey of such speech-chilling bias reporting systems earlier this month.
The speech and conduct of some 2.84 million students in the United States are subject to evaluation under bias reporting systems, according to the civil rights group.
The personnel who investigate student speech — usually called some variation of “bias response teams” — frequently includes law enforcement officials as well as school administrators and public relations staffers. Upon a finding of “guilty,” the teams of cops and bureaucrats summon students for hearings. These meetings are often intimidating and quasi-disciplinary. Their function, FIRE suggests, is to enforce a politically correct speech orthodoxy on campuses.
Many of the investigations by bias response teams are absurd.
Here are the 12 most sublimely ridiculous “bias incidents” actually, seriously investigated by “bias response teams” on U.S. college campuses.
In April 2016, the taxpayer-funded “Hate Response Team” at the University of Wisconsin–La Crosse strongly criticized a smattering of sidewalk chalking on campus in support then-presidential candidate Donald Trump, calling the chalk messages “discriminatory” and “hostile.”
“The Hate Response Team is aware of several chalkings across campus that promote Trump 2016, including messages like ‘Build the Wall,’ ‘All Lives Matter,’ and ‘Stop Illegal Immigration,’” according to a Facebook post from the UW-La Crosse Hate Response Team. “While we respect peoples’ right to express their opinions, we also recognize that some communities on campus experience these messages as discriminatory or hostile.”
“All manifestations of prejudice and intolerance are contradictory to our mission as a university. If you experience any bigotry on or off campus, please turn to trusted friends and/or campus resources for support,” the Hate Response Team urges…
