The Civil Rights Act of 1964: repealed at
Washington and Lee University in Virginia
“Segregation today, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever!” A program to teach business practices to college students at Washington & Lee University in Virginia makes it very clear that whites and Asians are not welcome to apply, and will be shadow-banned should they do so.
The program is offered by the Williams Investment Society, or WIS, “a student organization that manages a portion of Washington and Lee University’s endowment in equity securities,” its website states.
“To promote equality of opportunity, the WIS has developed a successful diverse shadow program and we encourage you to apply if you self-identify with any of the following communities: Women, Black, Lantinx, Latin, Native American, LGBTQ+, Veterans, and Students with Disabilities,” the society states in advertising the program.
Despite repeated requests, the program refused to provide any statistics on the racial breakdown of who gets accepted, strongly suggesting that it specifically blacklists the races (whites and Asians) it does not like, and favors the races and genders it loves (blacks, women, sexual perverts, and Hispanics). Such a bigoted policy would not only violate the college’s non-discrimination policy, it would violate numerous civil rights laws. Thus, the program’s unwillingness to provide any information.
This business program is very similar to another blacklisting accounting program offered at many New York state public colleges, which initially had bluntly excluded whites, then made believe it is considering applications from them as well, though it is very clear that by demanding racial data from applicants it allows the program to shadow ban whites in advance, and do so in a manner that makes it difficult to detect.
Both programs are very typical for the modern academic culture, which is now strongly focused on the race and sex and ethnicity of each person, rather than their actual individual abilities or accomplishments. Academia today has become the equivalent of the bigoted South prior to the civil rights movement, a place where Jim Crow-type rules are used to exclude, discriminate, and harm those who happen to be of the wrong races (white and Asian) or sex (straight male).
With such bigotry and oppression as standard policy, it is astonishing that any state legislature or private donor continues to provide these racist colleges any support at all. It is time to turn the spigot off. Let them find funds instead from like-minded segregationists.
