Blogline of The Day – so “included” is now “segregated”?

Segregation Back of the Bus FI

Students demand segregated ‘Black House’ so they can ‘feel included.’

…The identity of all but two students who helped compose the letter was intentionally withheld “to protect the anonymity of Black students who may not feel comfortable with their name attached to a stated demand.” The letter states the list of demands “has been in the works for almost a year…”

The letter demands that a non-residential house be built solely for the use of black students and black organizations, functioning as an area for social gatherings. This house, segregated from Rice’s white students, was demanded so that black students can “feel included on campus.”

I AM confused. How can be “segregated” also mean “included”? How can “included” possibly be used for a situation when some are deliberately set apart?

I could care less if it was Whites instead of Blacks, Asians instead of Brown – IT DOESN’T FREAKING MATTER.

What DOES matter is that, once again, we are seeing our common language being deliberately abused for a political agenda. This country spent the 50s, 60s, and 70s fighting for Civil Rights to have Integration happen?  “Included” WAS Integration – it meant no more segregating because of the color of one’s skin.

All those years, all that money, all that protest – and yes, all those killing and murders to re-integrate Society.

And now it’s all going to waste.
