College caves to 'woke' leftist student group

pile of cashA far-left student group at a women’s college demanded administrators create a “reparations fund” to help black students and indigenous students, and the school caved to the demand.

Bryn Mawr College, located in the Pennsylvania township of the same name, is home to approximately 1,700 students who attend the private liberal arts college that traces its roots to the Quakers.

Among various student groups is the Bryn Mawr Strike Collective, which organized a racial justice strike during the fall semester that include the “reparations fund” among a long list of outrageous demands that mirror the current anti-police, anti-white racial justice climate on campuses across the country.

According to The College Fix, school leaders caved and renamed the Dean’s Emergency Fund the Dean’s Student Assistance Fund and doubled the annual allocation to $10,000.

The renamed fund will now be overseen by a committee that includes more minority students.

Diane Gramley of the American Family Association of Pennsylvania tells One News Now the whole concept of racial justice is itself racist, since the minorities at Bryn Mawr are suggesting they need “special help” from the school due to their skin color.  

The group made their demands during a strike last fall that included sit-ins and class boycotts.

The long list of demands, which can be viewed here, includes adding a mandatory course on “black and white privilege” for the 2021-2022 school year; the school must recognize the work of blacks employed by the school annually; and the campus safety department must stop cooperating with the local police department and instead work with private organizations whose goal is “transformative justice” and abolition of prisons.

Reacting to the group’s presence on campus, Gramley says it is up to parents to research colleges and universities before sending their child.

“Just do a lot of homework before you're willing to send them there into the lion's den,” she says, “because it's very dangerous out there.”
