With many colleges and universities segregating their commencement ceremonies, a cultural issues writer says racism is being called "anti-racism."

"Instead of fostering unity through the shared experience of completing undergraduate degrees,"  Laurie Higgins of Breakthrough Ideas laments that college and university administrations are "rewarding the tribalist, separatist, ethno-balkanist impulses of woke students and their false teachers by offering identity-based graduation ceremonies."

Last month, Illinois State University held the the first of four separate ceremonies. The "Lavendar Graduation" was for LGBTQ+ students. A week later, "Latino/a/x graduates" were honored at the "Nuestros Logros."

On May 6th, the MAPC ceremony was held for "Middle Eastern, Asian, Pacific Islander, and Southeast Asian graduates." Finally, the Umoja Community Forum's annual celebration for students of African descent and from the "African diaspora" is scheduled for today.

Higgins says the university, which appears to regard sexual deviants as a prioritized race, is calling its racism "anti-racism."

"Critical race theory has just promoted, enhanced, [and] exacerbated racial tensions, ethnic tensions, [and] tensions between people who have different views of sexual morality," she observes.

The writer submits that dividing students into separate ceremonies normalizes ideas that are not only false, but profoundly dysfunctional.

"No family member of any black, of any Hispanic, of any Asian, of any homosexual, of any transcultist should attend any of these separatist ceremonies because they are untruthful, and they are divisive," Higgins contends.

In 2019, the National Association of Scholars documented 125 colleges and universities holding separate graduations, but Higgins is convinced the unofficial number is much higher.
