Every day that passes I think that people can’t get any dumber or become less aware of their surroundings. And yet, every single day I am proven wrong. Today is another one of those days. It looks as though although Cornell will be mandating a flu vaccination for all of its students.
Well, I’m not exactly telling the truth. Only white students will be forced to get the vaccination. Black, brown and indigenous student will not be forced to get the vaccine. You might be asking yourself, why would they only have white kids get it? Are they the sole carriers and transmitters of the flu? Are they disproportionately affected by the flu therefore absolutely requiring a vaccine?
If you are wondering, the answer to all of these questions is a resounding NO. The reason why will astound you. Here you go:
“We recognize that, due to longstanding systemic racism and health inequities in this country, individuals from some marginalized communities may have concerns about needing to agree to such requirements. For example, historically, the bodies the of Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color (BIPOC) have been mistreated, and used by people in power, sometimes for profit or medical gain. It is understandable that the current Compact requirements may feel suspect or even exploitative to some BIPOC members of the Cornell community. Additionally, recent acts of violence against Black people by law enforcement may contribute to feelings of distrust or powerlessness.”
Oh boy…WTF? Cornell is 100% serious about this. However, so they don’t get caught out there, they follow up with the following: “While the university “strongly recommend[s]” that nonwhite students comply voluntarily, because “long-standing social inequalities and health disparities have resulted in COVID-19 disproportionately affecting BIPOC individuals,” they will be granted an exemption if they cite their racial identity.”
Undoubtedly this is the most ridiculous and most ass backward policy I have ever seen. Our universities and colleges have taken PC culture to new and unfortunately, predictable places. Who exactly do they think that they are protecting by allowing this? Will it ever end?
They couldn’t have thought this all the way through because if they had, they would have come to the realization that it is policies like this that are doing more damage than good. Not that left cares, but they are the ones who are contributing to the racial divide in this country. They are the ones keeping us separated and pushing for more of a divide.
Why in the world would the left want people to get along? Because it would show that folks actually might have more in common than differences that they and the media harp on 24/7. It would also shatter the leftist myth that all white people are racist, and this nonsensical idea of white privilege is doing nothing but keeping us apart.
Not one ounce of science was used in making this decision, but rather the fear of BLM and other black activist groups. The kowtowing of college administrations is beyond disgusting and hopefully at some point common sense will prevail and these institutions of supposed higher learning will try to bring us together instead of contributing to the problem.
In the era of Harris/Biden, as seen with Obama/Biden, every possible incident that occurs, no matter how small or insignificant, will automatically be attributed to race. The left will continue to falsely accuse everyone who doesn’t agree with them or their policies as bigoted.
It is my sincere hope that the black, brown and indigenous students at Cornell see and understand that a flu shot is not just for them, but also to keep others safe as well. The same will hold true for the COVID vaccine.
