University’s ‘Diversity’ Summit Implements Racial Segregation

'You are also welcome to self define multicultural and intersectional tables that extend beyond single definitions...'

(Dmytro “Henry” AleksandrovHeadline USA) Without realizing the huge irony, Portland State University’s leftist “diversity” summit embraced racial segregation and told its participants to only sit at tables with people who shared their skin color.

Based on the leaked slide deck from the event, “The Future and Thriving of BIPOC Communities” event was held on Nov. 4 at the University Place Hotel to “advance the insights from the [Black, Indigenous People of Color] convenings and Inspire collective action,” according to the Daily Caller.

The university’s website stated that PSU is dedicated to being more racist toward white people by becoming a “majority-BIPOC student institution.”

People who attended the event sat at segregated tables. The “diverse and inclusive” leftists offered participants to put themselves into different boxes, like white, black, Native/Indigenous, Latiné, “Middle East, North Africa, South Asia” [MENASA] and “Pacific Islander, Native Hawaiian, Asian, and Asian American” [PIAA].

However, if you could not be easily put into a specific box, there were boxes such as “multicultural” and “intersectional.”

“You are also welcome to self define multicultural and intersectional tables that extend beyond single definitions e.g. Women of color, QTPOC, folks with disabilities, Immigrant, refugee etc.,” according to the presentation.

Katy Swordfisk, media relations manager for PSU, expanded jubilantly on that aspect.

“The daylong gathering built on a series of affinity convenings that took place earlier in the year,” she said. “Participants were invited to sit at a table that resonated with their identity… for the first part of the day, and shifted to tables by discussion topic later in the day.”

According to a January report about racial segregation at PSU from the Oregon Association of Scholars, a nonprofit dedicated to merit in higher education, this event was “a clear example of neo-segregation and discriminatory public sector behavior,” adding that the events were “a non-voluntary and non-escapable imposition of racial categories as the basis for university operations.”

OAS also said that the “white” tables were a “double assault on the principle of non-discrimination” since they were “intended to highlight the oppressive character of all white people, who are instructed to deconstruct their whiteness and share their white guilt.”
