Tucker Carlson went live with a lead protester on an effort to paint parts of the campus in Pan-Afrikan colors…Oh brother!
At the end of the interview, Carlson sarcastically said he’s sure they’ll get “whatever they want”…
WE SAY: SHUT THESE BRATS DOWN!
A mob of social justice students commandeered the University of California, Santa Cruz’s administration building Tuesday to demand the school paint a dorm on campus in “Pan-Afrikan” colors, among other things.
“We demand that the university fund the ENTIRE exterior of the Rosa Parks African American Themed House being painted Pan-Afrikan colors (red, green, and black) by the start of spring quarter 2017,” students with UCSC’s Afrikan Black Student Alliance wrote in a list of demands to school officials. “These Pan-Afrikan colors represent Black liberation, and represent our diaspora, and the goals of our people.”
Hundreds of students stormed into Kerr Hall around 1 p.m. Tuesday and have refused to leave until university officials heed all of their “uncompromisable demands,” locking some doors with chains and stacking furniture in front of others, KGO reports.
They’ve stockpiled food and posted social justice messages in the windows, and now they’re mostly loafing around on the floor, sleeping and playing on their computers, while they wait for school officials to deliver on the demands, according to NBC Bay Area.
Organizers contend they had “no other choice” than to stage their collective tantrum.
THE SEVEN DEMANDS:
San Francisco Bay Area Independent Media Center reports the group issued a total of seven demands:
•The purchase of a special property near campus for low-income housing for “historically disadvantaged students” with four bedrooms and “appropriate furnishings” to be “operated by the Afrikan Black Student Alliance.”
•That “ALL African Black Caribbean identified students have a four-year housing guarantee to live in the Rosa Parks African American Themed House.”
•That the university “remove the bed and release the Rosa Parks African Themed House lounge so it can serve its original purpose.”
•That UCSC “fund the ENTIRE exterior of the Rosa Parks African American Themed House being painted Pan-African colors (red, green, and black) by the start of the spring quarter 2017.”
•All incoming students are subjected to mandatory “in-person diversity competency training.”
•That UCSC allocate $100,000 to hire a special advisor with “personal and professional experience handling African/Black/Caribbean student issues.”
•A “response from Chancellor (George) Blumenthal and all interested parties by April 3, 2017.”
