University of Arizona: dedicated to the new segregation!
“Segregation today, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever!” The University of Arizona has begun a new racist policy whereby anyone who is a member of one of 22 American Indian tribes that exist in the state will be excused from paying any tuition or fees while studying on campus.
Beginning in the fall, new and continuing full-time, degree-seeking, in-state undergraduates will be eligible for the Arizona Native Scholars Grant, the first program of its kind in Arizona. The program will be administered by UArizona Enrollment Management.
“Serving Arizona’s Native American tribes and tribal students is a crucial part of the University of Arizona’s land-grant mission, and the Arizona Native Scholars Grant program is another important step among many to do that,” said University of Arizona President Robert C. Robbins. “I am so proud that that this university has found a way to help hundreds of students more easily access and complete a college education, and I look forward to finding ways to take these efforts even further.”
To be eligible, students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, and provide tribal identification. Native American tribes’ federal legal status allows universities to administer scholarships and grants to tribal members.
More than 400 students enrolled at UArizona last year meet the criteria for the new program.
Let me translate what UA president Robert C. Robbins is really saying:
American Indians are special. All other races are inferior and must be treated accordingly. Furthermore, those inferior races (mostly white and Asian) must pay for the education of this special race. And they better not complain about being treated unfairly, or else they will find themselves blacklisted, canceled, and ostracized. Get to the back of the bus, boy, and shut up!
It seems to me that the Arizona state legislature should take a look at this university’s funding. If UA wishes to institute racist admissions policies then maybe the taxpayers should not help it do so.
The worst aspect of this story however is that this bigoted and racist tuition program is hardly unusual nowadays in academic circles. Colleges now routinely give minorities and special political groups favored treatment, all in violation of numerous civil rights laws. Below are just a few examples taken from the full list of daily blacklist stories I have published in the past eighteen months:
I could list dozens and dozens of additional stories but there is no point. The list above makes the point quite clearly. The establishment educational institutions of the United States have once again embraced discrimination, segregation, and bigotry. The only difference between now and the past is which races are given special treatment and which races are oppressed.
And the last story indicates which side of the political aisle endorses this segregation and bigotry. These programs have been pushed and enforced mostly by Democrats now for decades, sadly with the timid acquiescence of Republicans and the general American population. Up until now however the favoritism was most often carefully disguised as programs designed to provide aid to the poor and distressed. If they favored minorities they were structured to hide their bigotry to get around the civil rights laws.
No more. The left now believes the law does not apply to it, and it is going all out to enforce its racism on everyone, in the most public and vicious manner it can manage.

From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.
Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space
, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.
does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.
“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.
