Students at the University of Maryland have released a list of 64 demands in their effort make the campus more amenable to “marginalized student populations.”
The project, known as ProtectUMD, is a collaborative effort between 25 student organizations at the University of Maryland, including Students for Justice in Palestine, Bisexuals at Maryland, and the Black Student Union.
There are 64 demands across 8 subsets of students — Marginalized, American Indian, Black, Latinx, LGBTQIA+, Muslim, Pro-Palestine, and Undocumented — including scholarships for “students of marginalized communities,” a ban on Columbus Day, beginning every on-campus event with an acknowledgement that “this is Indigenous Land,” that African American professors get tenure, that preferred pronouns are included on rosters, and that “queer diversity training” is required.
This is a foreseeable consequence of the coalition of fringes built by the Democrats, and where PC is taking us.
Victimhood, whether perceived or actual, is power on today’s college and university campuses, which are no longer centers for learning, but are merely Leftist indoctrination camps. Thus these groups hang their preposterous demands on their supposed victimhood. This is also why there are so many anti-Muslim hate crimes that are faked by Muslims: when victimhood does not exist, it must be invented.
