Elective Blacks-Only Grad Ceremonies Divide Races, Culture

With colleges and universities in the midst of graduating their senior classes, many are holding segregated ceremonies.

According to a report by the Washington Examiner, over 75 schools are holding special commencement ceremonies for their black graduates.

Among the schools with separate ceremonies are Ivy League institutions such as Harvard and Yale as well as University of California Berkeley and Arizona State University.

Project 21 member Richard Holt condemns the idea of holding race-exclusive ceremonies.  He says:

Things like this are why there’s a rise in white nationalism. Race-exclusive clubs, ceremonies, societies and the elitism they bring hurt the true American spirit and create artificial divides in our culture.

Race is purely a sociological construct used to manipulate and divide the public. We are one people. Any other thought, belief, agenda or suggestion otherwise is evil, unscientific, decisive, un-American and wrong.



Project 21, a leading voice of black conservatives for over 25 years, is sponsored by the National Center for Public Policy Research. Its members have been quoted, interviewed or published over 40,000 times since the program was created in 1992. Contributions to the National Center are tax-deductible and greatly appreciated, and may be earmarked exclusively for the use of Project 21.
