The University of California Berkeley unearths itself embroiled in controversy because it hosts an unique “black-only graduation ceremony,” which immediately contradicts the foundations of racial equality and integration established throughout the Civil Rights motion.
The African American Studies Department at UC Berkeley introduced in March that they might be maintaining their annual “Black Graduation” rite for college kids in May.
“The Department of African American Studies plans on hosting our annual Black Graduation ceremony, which is open to all majors and degree programs across the campus,” learn the announcement,
On Saturday, UC Berkeley held its black-only commencement at Zellerbach Hall, UC Berkeley.
“Black Graduation is an annual, campus-wide ceremony that celebrates all Black/African/African American identifying students upon completion of their undergraduate, master’s, Ph.D., JD, and/or professional degree programs,” the livestream caption studying.
Campus Reform reported that the general public college’s separate commencement for African American scholars has been happening yearly since 2013.
The unique nature of the rite raises considerations about conflicts with the foundations of equality and integration that have been established throughout the Civil Rights motion.
The Civil Rights Act of 1964, for instance, prohibits racial discrimination in public lodging, which incorporates tutorial establishments. The act aimed to dismantle segregation and create a society the place persons are handled similarly, without reference to their race.
“We’re disheartened to see universities like Columbia and now Berkeley veer so far to the left that they’re resurrecting Democrats’ segregationist history,” mentioned California College Republicans Communications Director Dylan Martin.
“Encouraging our separation into groups – saying there should be something separate and special for different races – furthers the division in this country. The solution to racism is not segregation. CCR is happy to represent all College Republicans in the state in condemning these segregationist actions,” Martin mentioned.
