$10 a barrel tax on oil…. I guess you don’t have to worry about the taxes on oil if you use other peoples money to fly around.

“A segment of the video was one component of a thoughtful discussion in which all viewpoints were encouraged.”
I wonder what the discussion would be considered if the school presented the life bio of Senator Robert Byrd and how his version of diversity was and is still is embraced and venerated by the Democrat party?

During his speech inaugurating the tank, Hamas’ Izzedin Al-Qassam Brigades spokesman Abu Obeida warned the Islamic movement was “preparing ourselves for the day that we shall meet those [Israeli] tanks.”
Let’s hope that is the tank design they sent to meet the Israeli tanks.
the dirty little secret is liberal academic elites pity minorities.
it's also why the feminazis don't say boo about Islam's treatment of women.
MLK is crying in his grave. Sad to see how far backwards we have gone.
Liberals trying to take business away from all black colleges, but with the best intentions at heart.
Tracey Dash is right. Either blacks want integration or they want segregation–they need to decide. Seems they prefer segregation on many fronts. At least I am confident that presidential adviser Sharpton is on his way to UConn to protest, and Obama will soon be offering a presser condemning this new racist effort to segregate victim of society and victims of white privilege, the black students.
Libs also keep AmeriKs ghettos full and BHO is putting projects up everywhere except the zip codes of the really rich.
No. That is NOT what liberals are saying.
I would love to try and understand how a mind like yours works. (Or is that not works? )
A misguided "solution to the fact that black male students graduate at a lower rate" is NOT liberals calling black people stupid.
When students who don't achieve at the same rate as the majority are held back a grade or when a struggling student is given 'special attention'... Are those efforts to be considered liberals calling those folks stupid?
Seems to me YOUR ignorance is only being outdone by your own stupidity.
"they see this as a form of segregation" said Isaac Bloodworth, a puppetry major.
Guess what Sir Isaac?
THAT IS what it is! IT IS a form of segregation.
But...if there are no students of other races nearby, from which to steal from...how will these young black men ever get enough from the local pawn shops in order to continue their scholastic dreams?
Also, if there are no black women there, how will these Nubian females ever achieve the grand title of "baby mama" and make their own way through life on welfare and other government subsidies.
It boggles the mind...
So let me see if I get this right. First, segregation, considered backward and evil. Then, integration, considered good and forward thinking. Finally, back to segregation, only now, it's considered good and forward thinking and integration is evil. But, this goes against inclusivity which is one of their main dogmas. I'm confused...so what's good is evil and what was considered evil is now good. Uuhhhmm, where did I read that? That's right the Bible. The progs, highly educated fools, and unbelievers just cannot see what the underlying issue is, they will never see it unless they humble themselves at the foot of the Cross and the power and wisdom of His Word. Many will simply not see, that blind people always focus on the symptom instead of the root issue which is sin. This words are True: 'You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving.
Just call it what it really is. The Affirmative Action House
Try reframing this in your mind...a white UC student may very likely live on a hall where all of his neighbors, in fact, the entire hall is white. Many of us live in parts of the country where we may not see a black person for an entire day. Most of us don't have close black friends. What is the effect of all this? I'm not sure, but I do think it has an effect. Maybe an increased sense of belonging, or safety. Why shouldn't black UC students be able to have that experience also? There also happens to be a lot of good research on the benefits of voluntary segregation. For the one or two of you who actually care, the book "Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafateria" is the best single-volume source on that research.
Hope they build one for the LBGT peeps...
All liberal thought results in division and ultimately segregration.
Liberalism is hate under different brush strokes.
This is such a misguided choice. Every time an institution draws a line between people based on color, they advance racist thinking. They teach that there is an intrinsic difference based on color which is ridiculous. If black males are not doing as well in school, it should be addressed within the student body as help for students needing it. I’m certain that catagory would include a diverse group of individuals, and not solely black students. This choice makes more problems than it solves I think. It also makes me wonder who gave the grant.
A puppetry major? Oh dear God!
"In order to help black males graduate?"
So, diversity is a good thing when it's unfavorable to whites, but a bad thing when it's favorable to blacks? This is what whites have been up against for nearly 50 years. It's a rigged game, and shockingly, whites continue to perform better.
Is the Dorm called "Front of the Bus Blacks only" I mean because thats the real message right!
Segregation and privileges given on the basis of skin color isn't racist when it's done for blacks?
This sort of madness is precisely the reason why I wouldn't dream of donating money to any alma mater, and it's why I support ending almost all federal funding for universities. Let states, businesses and individuals support them and most of this sort to crap would eventually disappear.
Segregation...coming full-circle once again.
This college needs to learn to spell the word SCHOLARS before they try to teach anything to anyone!
it may be converted to a mosque at a future date
Q: What do you call someone who gets a degree in puppetry?
A: A Puppet Master!
so they are saying the blacks can't keep up and segregation is now the answer?
I thought the uproar was to get past those ideas?
You want Black college students to do better during and after college, the solution is simple: Stop treating them like they're special. You continue to give somebody under developed physically a crutch, they'll continue to use it until death. if you take the crutch and put them through rehab, they'll learn to stand and move on their own.
Racism 2.0. It won't work however, because it only increases their desire to remain apart and not assimilate into society. They need to bring in some black me that have made it in the white man's world like Ben Carson or Colonel West to give seminars on integration.
Great Idea. America had special housing for Black Males 200 years ago. I thought they wanted to move away from that, but what ever floats their boat. Will they have their own water fountains and bathrooms too?
Could you imagine the outcry if someone donated money to build a white only dorm? Also, they didn’t say in the article, but if someone who lives in the dorm has a white friend, is the white guy allowed to go into that dorm? Is there a sign on the door that says Black Only, no whites allowed?
LOL Wonder what Melissa Harris-Perry will have to say about this!
Oh yeah - that should work. Instead of putting a dunce hat on them and setting them on a stool - lets make them all go to a dorm everyday where everyone knows and in addition give them extras that no one else gets, Because we know this won't make them stick out or be treated poorly by the rest of the student body.
"come together and validate their experiences" = Racist. Imagine if any White person created anything so Whites can "come together and validate their experiences." (And for those of you with snarky, "that already exists, it's called _________," that crap doesn't hold water, so don't try it. NOTHING like that exists outside minority groups.)
I give it one semester for BLM to condemn the building.
Might as well give them their own basket ball league, o wait.
“I will always contest to the fact that black men on the campus aren’t given enough resources, I will in no way dispel that fact"
Are black men able to access less resources than other people? No. So how is this a fact?
True racism at its finest.
is “a scholastic initiative to groom, nurture, and train the next generation of leaders to address grand challenges in society through the promotion of academic success in undergraduate programs at the University of Connecticut and in competitive graduate programs.”
Sounds to me like more "social engineering" meant to create more Eric Holder/obummer type "leaders" to continue their evil ways.
Okay couple of things I would like to point out.
1. Reverse the races and build an all white male dorm and watch as the screams of racism become deafening! And don't give me the bs that they already have all white male dorms.
2. Isn't this going against the liberal push for "multiculturalism"......oh wait they only push "multiculturalism" when it means doing away with anything "white"
3. Issac Bloodworth a puppetry major....in more ways than one!
4. I bet there will be an endless line if white girls going to that dorm and before anyone says that is racists. I remember how college was in the 90s. The black guys wanted nothing to do with the black girls but only messed with white girls. The reason was because they said white girls were easy and they could do whatever they wanted to them. Plus black girls wanted to know all their business and would question them.
If these are University of Connecticut funds paying for this, it time to pull out the lawyers.
If this is privately funded, off campus housing, then go right ahead.
If one were a student of Native American heritage, or of Chinese-American, or any other hyphenated background attending the University, they should be pulling out the lawyers. This is obviously a government funded program that favors graduating a group based solely on a student's race. Equal standing under the law.
What the crap!? They are segregating black guys from white people on a college campus? Don’t people find that just a TEENSY BIT RACIST!?
LETS ISOLATE BLACKS FROM THE REST OF WHITE AMERICA
Blacks should be made to get use to being by themselves so when the time comes to deport them they are not upset.
“You have people who are going to go against it because they are just racist and they see this as a form of segregation" So only in academia would opposing segregation be called racist. Meanwhile, imagine the instant refusal if the university got an award to build white male housing.............
Renowned liberal Antonin Scalia:
200,000 sq ft, for 43 men!?? How much is that going to cost? How much is tuition going to increase now to accommodate 43 men on a campus of thousands of students. Fine give it a year, I predict that a year from now the percentage of dropouts from this social experiment will be exactly as it is now. The name of the dorm is a dead give away that the people who thought this up, do not take it seriously.

The new policy announced Friday drew praise from a gun-control group that says it has been urging Facebook to prohibit sales. Everytown for Gun Safety, which started with backing from former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, says it found cases where felons who should not have been allowed to legally buy guns were able to buy one from unlicensed sellers on Facebook.
That is no problem. There is a law on the books that they have to turn in their firearms, so no doubt they will.
Everytown is wholly funded by Bloomberg. So is Moms Demand. They are both front orgs for gun bans, with useful idiots for members.

It will be interesting to see if the faculty takes a paid days off for the dominant holidays. Personally, if I were a parent, I would require the faculty honor the demands of the principal, and then keep the kids home that day to celebrate the dominant holiday.

It did not look like he was able to beat the undefeated wrestler. He came in slow and clumsy and I think if the kid wanted to throw him, he could have. I did think the wrestler made it a little too easy, but he was the one in the match and probably knew he could smoke the kid… He probably knew how far this kid could go. As far as the DS kid goes, a win is a win and goes in the win file.

So, walking through a neighborhood with a cross is politically incorrect and insensitive, but physical abuse and threats is justifiable? Yeah, I think I get it. I wonder how it would be reported if the muslims walked through a Christian neighborhood and were pelted and heckled?
when Black march through a White neighborhood do you criticize the Blacks?

What bothers me is that nobody listens to the old stuff we grew up on. In the eighties, the radio stations I listened to played the 60′s and 70′s and 80′s and even some 50′s music. Kids today are missing out on really great music because of the attitude they are being taught that the newer is always better… except many times it isn’t.
I see a business opportunity. All those Muslims who think it is a problem should start their own company and give everybody there all the time they need to prey each day… Everybody wins. The Americans can be forced to work for the time they are scheduled to work and the muslims (and anybody else that wanted a lot of break time) will be employed by people who allow the workers to work all the time they do not feel like not working.
