The University of Minnesota is offering a research program that bans white people from applying for it.
The university’s Multicultural Summer Research Opportunities Program (MSROP) is described as “an intensive 10-week summer program in which undergraduate students of color work full-time with a faculty mentor on a research project.”
“Each participant will receive a $6,000 stipend for personal and research expenses. An additional research stipend is assigned to the faculty mentor for use by the student,” the program description adds.
But the website for the program also notes that any applicant must “Identify as a Student of Color or Native American” with a specified goal “to prepare students of color and Native Americans for graduate school.”
Per Fox News:
The Equal Protection Project of the Legal Insurrection Foundation is calling for the University of Minnesota (UMN) to change its application process and open its summer internship programs to all students regardless of skin color.
“The U. Minnesota segregated summer program is inexcusable, and it’s shocking that a major university would so openly make educational opportunities open only to students of a certain skin color,” Bill Jacobson, president of the Equal Protection Project (EPP), told Fox News Digital. “EqualProtect.org calls on the university immediately to open-up the summer program to students of all races, ethnicities, and skin colors.”
“There is no good form of racial discrimination. Depriving white students of educational opportunities does not promote racial or any other form of justice,” Jacobson continued. “U. Minnesota’s conduct is inexcusable.”
According to the UMN’s Office of Undergraduate Studies’ website, the Multicultural Summer Research Opportunities Program (MSROP) is, “an intensive 10-week summer program in which undergraduate students of color work full-time with a faculty mentor on a research project.”
The university now says that it is “re-evaluating” the program.
But, the fact that they felt so comfortable doing this in the first place is telling.
Firstly, it is illegal for a state-funded institution to discriminate like this.
But the left simply does not care because the ends justifies the means. They feel they can do anything they want regardless of how illegal, or anti-American it is.
Don’t imagine this is only happening at one wacky, left-wing school in Minnesota, either. This sort of garbage is happening in every, single college in every single state.
