Columbia University faces backlash for segregated graduations

Columbia University in New York City will host virtual graduation ceremonies segregated by race, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status, in addition to its main commencement ceremonies for all students.

In order to “provide a more intimate setting for students who self-identify in a variety of ways,” the Ivy League school said these programs are a way to “complement” the main ceremonies.

Academia should be cancelled, especially the paragons of higher ed like Berkeley, Columbia, Harvard, Yale, etc.

This is beyond ironic! Separate graduations by race IS the very definition of racism.
