During a student forum held Thursday at the University of Maryland, Black Lives Matter advocates argued that activism should be taught in the classroom to make it more “convenient” for students to “stand up for racial justice.”
The "Baltimore to Byrd" event, hosted by the student organization Maryland Discourse, featured a panel consisting of two students, Rhys Hall and Christine Hagan, as well as Chief Diversity Officer and Associate Vice President Kumea Shorter-Gooden and College Park City Councilor Robert Day.

“I think this is an incredibly important movement that should involve all of us,” Dr. Short-Gooden added. “Black Lives Matter is not just for black folks to embrace, and it’s wonderful to look out in the world and to see such visible diversity in terms of ethnicity and race. I think Black Lives Matter is aimed at eliminating all racism, whether it’s intentional or unintentional; whether it’s conscious or unconscious.”
When asked if the university has been sufficiently active in the movement, Hall immediately said “no,” and that he wished the university... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
“I think it’s very hard to find students that are truly motivated and want to do something,” she complained. “I know we all have so much homework to get done and studying to do, and there all these more fun, more exciting things we could be doing with our Friday nights but I don’t think there’s ever going to be a convenient time to stand up for social justice.”
Dr. Shorter-Gooden went even further, opining that the principles of the Black Lives Matter movement should be integrated into coursework regardless of their relevance to the subject.

“For a lot of ways my blackness is a crime, the blackness of some my fellow brothers and sisters and not conforming has been a crime, and we’re being persecuted just for our pure existence,” Hall said, arguing that even if his white counterparts aren’t doing anything “inherently wrong,” they are nonetheless “compliant” if they don’t actively stand against the system.
“For example, I don’t need you to tell me you feel sorry for me as a black person; you don’t have to apologize for the mistakes of your ancestors,” he explained. “What I do need... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
">They are there to shield local capitalists" in other words --- They are there to shield local businesses from foreign monopoly.
Do ppl actually think this is bad or something?
They need a boost in their local economy in any way they can get right about now cause their in the shitter (and/or designated shitting street). Buying import panels won't be increasing "competition" so much as it would be bullying out their local companies from having any chance of competing.
>>Time photographer Chris Morris steps outside Trump press pen to get better shot of exiting BLM protesters. >>Secret Service agent stops him from leaving the pen. >>Morris gets salty, says "fuck you" to the agent twice. >>Agent throws him into a table and then the ground. There's a gif image of the agent's response at the Time link. The guy clamps onto Morris' neck, wrangles him for a couple of seconds and then destroys him. I thought there'd be more of a discussion about this, but people seem to be taking it in stride as a result of Trump's use of press pens to corral the media. One of the images linked to the Time article shows the USSS agent hesitant to move against Morris after he puts him into the ground, even when Morris fucking puts his hand on the agent's neck to demonstrate what he'd just done, before being taken away by law enforcement. Is the Secret Service too eager to enforce Trump's stricter-than-normal press regulations?

>>26272 I don't think they are going to call it a playstation anymore but I think this thing will replace the current generation of game consoles, and sooner rather than later.
