American scholar and author of “Cynical Theories: How Activist Scholarship Made Everything about Race, Gender, and Identity―and Why This Harms Everybody,” James Lindsay spoke about the resurgence of racial segregation in the United States.
How Everyone Became Disputed About Race, Gender and Identity and What’s Wrong With It,” James Lindsay spoke about the resurgence of racial segregation in the United States.
On Tuesday, Nov. 16, the expert opined that the emergence of “multicultural spaces” and black-only dormitories at American universities is the resurgence of segregation in the country.
Lindsey explained that this separation of university spaces along racial lines comes under a “crazy pretext”: proponents of these initiatives believe that the university campus is “permeated with whiteness.”
“Therefore, from their point of view, it is necessary to create a separate space, a kind of “bubble” where racial minorities can gather and where “whiteness” cannot penetrate – so that minority students can shelter from the pressures of the unjust social order they say they regularly encounter. All in all, a very paranoid thing,” Lindsay said.
In fact, according to the scientist, these innovations lead to the emergence of circles, where there is an unhindered propaganda of radical ideas of identity politics, writes REGNUM. In addition, it is a demonstration of power: not allowing people who are not members of racial minorities to go somewhere.
In 2020, Yale University in the United States was accused of racism against white applicants and applicants of Asian descent. It became known that it was easier for African Americans to enroll than for people of color. The Justice Department investigated and found that race and background were determining factors in admitting applicants to undergraduate programs.
