American colleges and universities are rife with safe-space clinging, ungrateful Social Justice Warriors (students and educators alike) who habitually lament racist and sexist America. But now, Southern Illinois University has devised a brilliant plan to help heal this great ill: Take naps and literally dream about diversity! The university is hosting “nap-ins” at the Morris Library, where students can dream of diversity as part of the three-week Dreaming Diversity Art Installation, which kicked off on Monday.
A residential advisor at Pitzer College sent a campus-wide email informing students—white women, in particular—that they should stop wearing hoop earrings. Hooped earrings “actually come from a historical background of oppression and exclusion,” wrote Alegria Martinez, according to The Claremont Independent. “Why should white girls be able to take part in this culture?”
Alliance Defending Freedom asked students at the University of Wisconsin if they thought a dress designer should have the freedom not to design a dress for Melania Trump. They said “absolutely.” The students also thought a Muslim should have the right to turn down singing at a Christian church. But when they are asked if a Christian photographer should have the right not to photograph a same-sex wedding, their answers uncomfortably change.
