Here, we have another glaring example of self-victimization by, shockingly (sarcasm), college students. During a sci-fi themed event at Stevenson College, a residential college of the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC), students chose to be offended by (wait for it) the food provided.
The event staff deemed the theme to be “intergalactic” and decorated the room with spaceships and aliens. Focus on the “aliens.” The staff, wittingly or unwittingly, chose to cater the event with a Mexican food buffet, which students then linked the Mexican food with the theme of aliens.
Get it? They made a connection of goofy space aliens and illegal immigrants, specifically the term “illegal aliens.”
Wait, it gets better (or worse depending on how you receive this). Stevenson is APOLOGIZING for the “cultural insensitivity” of the event. Dr. Carolyn Golz, Student Life overseer, wrote a letter to students, particularly to undocumented students, apologizing for the connection students made.
“We would never want to make a connection between individuals of Latino heritage or undocumented students and "aliens" and I am so sorry that our College Night appeared to do exactly that.”
Dr. Golz will even require her staff to go through “cultural competence training” to make them more culture sensitive and inclusive.
“As a result of this incident, I will require cultural competence training for Programs staff, in addition to implementing mechanisms for future program planning that will ensure college programs are culturally sensitive and inclusive.”
Once again reaching an olive branch to the undocumented (politically correct way of saying illegal immigrant) students, saying:
“As an ally for students of color and, in particular, undocumented students, I am committed to ensuring that student life staff receive the training necessary to make sure that this type of incident does not happen again at Stevenson.”
She even gave them a website where they could report any perceived hate or bias. So if you, or anyone you know, attend UCSC be sure you quiet your dissent against the ideas of open borders and your support for legal immigration policy.
Dr. Golz cares “about the individuals in our community and I want everyone to feel respected, included, and affirmed.”
Unless you’re a freedom-loving, law-abiding American citizen (natural-born or naturalized) who expects others to do the same.
