Columbia University is planning to hold six additional graduation ceremonies for students according to their race and other aspects of how they identify.
The New York City school's website details graduation ceremonies for Native, Asian, "Latinx" and Black students taking place for Columbia College, Columbia Engineering, General Studies and Barnard College at the end of April. Another dubbed "FLI Graduation" is for "first generation and/or low income community." The school also hosts a "Lavender" graduation for the "LGBTIAQ+ community."
This is the oddest thing about it all. Separate everything except toilets.
It's not supposed to be principled or logically consistent, it's about eroding traditional culture to replace it with government and corporate obedience.
As long as you say you're doing for it some apparently lofty (and impractical) ideal the stupid and ignorant will be manipulated into unconditionally opening their wallets and blindly trust those that assuage their perceived guilt.
