UC Berkeley hosted its annual blacks-only graduation even though it's clearly against California discrimination laws.
The separate ceremony for African American students appears to have started as an annual event at the public university in 2013. The graduation ceremony is separate from the main graduation ceremony, which will be held virtually on May 15.
California College Republicans Communications Director Dylan Martin told Campus Reform that this decision “furthers the division in this country.”
“We’re disheartened to see universities like Columbia and now Berkeley veer so far to the left that they’re resurrecting Democrats’ segregationist history. Encouraging our separation into groups – saying there should be something separate and special for different races – furthers the division in this country. The solution to racism is not segregation. CCR is happy to represent all College Republicans in the state in condemning these segregationist actions," Martin said.
