Safe spaces are all the rage in the US at the moment. For all the intolerant bigots out there who don’t know what a safe space is:
A place where anyone can relax and be fully self-expressed, without fear of being made to feel uncomfortable, unwelcome or unsafe on account of biological sex, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, cultural background, age, or physical or mental ability; a place where the rules guard each person’s self-respect and dignity and strongly encourage everyone to respect others.
Students from the Black Justice League occupied the office of Princeton University President Chris Eisgruber until he folded. Aside from their demands regarding Wilson, there was also this demand. According to Planet Princeton:
Students also called on the school to provide a dedicated space on campus for black students that is clearly marked. The students want to be able to name the space themselves, and don’t want it named after “a white benefactor or person with bigoted beliefs, as evidenced by the naming of Stanhope Hall.
Yes, that’s what we need – separate public areas for black people. That’s never been tried before.
Clearly college kids are consuming a different kind of drugs these days.
PS: pretty much everyone already has a safe space – it’s called ‘home’. It’s where you should go if the big bad world is getting a bit much for you.
