Segregation now Woke at Syracuse

So much for Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream.

Syracuse University students are now so woke they’re championing segregation.

After anti-black and anti-Asian graffiti was found in a campus dorm bathroom and on a bulletin board, students held a sit-in. The sitters made several demands, according to the Daily Orange, Syracuse’s student newspaper.

Among other changes, students want the ability to deny roommates based on their race. Long-term, these woke protesters, in the name of fighting racism and securing a welcoming, diverse campus, demand the university, “Agree to offer a ‘Same Race’ option for roommate selection on the housing applications for all students.”

So the Civil Rights movement and all of its victories against exclusion and segregation are being tossed aside by people preaching inclusion.

Curiously, the sitters also are demanding more counselors to “represent all marginalized identities … a building for multi-cultural offices, organizations and programs,” and $1 million for a “unified required” curriculum on “anti-racism” and other diversity issues, according to the College Fix.

The thought schism is just astounding.

Woke Land has now crossed over to Bizarro World.

Evers’ spokeswoman did not return Empower Wisconsin’s request for comment.

Kelly said the Department of Administration has voiced some concern about the timing, and he said the Milwaukee Brewers “were not terribly happy we ended the tax.” While the Stadium District and the Legislature insist the tax has taken in enough money, the Brewers disagree.

“If the Brewers had concerns, they had 11 months to voice them,” Kelly said.

Assembly Speaker Robin Vos (R-Rochester) on Thursday signed the bill cover sheet, which released the bill for Evers’ consideration.

“It’s with great pride that I was able to take the final legislative step to officially end the Miller Park Tax. I’ve been fighting to make this happen since I began serving in the state Assembly in 2005,” Vos said in a statement. “In fact, I authored a bill (2007 Assembly Bill 941) twelve years ago to sunset the tax. I’m glad that we’re finally seeing the end of the sales and use taxes in 2020 and that excess revenues will be returned to the counties where they were collected.”
