CSULA Commits to Hiring Psychologists for Black Students

CSULA Commits to Hiring Psychologists for Black Students

Just when we thought things couldn’t get any stranger at CSULA, the president announced he would be caving to the extravagant and bizarre demands of the campus’ Black Student Union. University President William Covino officially confirmed that the school will be implementing a number of institutional changes in the name of “ fairness and justice” and in direct response to a set of demands released by the CSULA Black Student Union.

From the BSU press release: “The Following have been achieved since the Black Student Union presented their demands to President William A. Covino in November of 2015: “1. California State University, Los Angeles has agreed to DIVEST from all Private Prison corporations! The investment committee has eliminated any holdings in the private prison corporations at the direction of the President. This is a historic and significant victory for Black communities and makes Cal State L.A. the third university to divest from private prisons and the second public institution to do so following UC’s recent decision to divest at the urging of the Afrikan Black Coalition. “2. The Director of Housing has been asked to work with administration and the BSU in creating, and developing, a Black Scholars’ living learning community. We expect the development of the Black Scholars Hall to take place prior to the Fall 2016 term. “3. The president has agreed to allocate $100,000 to the Cross Cultural Centers to be divided between the four student centers effective January 1, 2016. We expect this allocation to be permanent. “4. Beginning in fall 2016, all students will be required to complete one diversity course and one race and ethnicity course. “5. The President has agreed to allocate $100,000 for staffing and other costs to increase the yield of Black students who get accepted into Cal State L.A. for Fall 2016, and an additional $100,000 for the recruitment of Black students for Fall 2017. We expect these allocations of $200,000 in total to be permanent. “6. The president has committed to the hiring of new staff psychologists who have demonstrated experience in working with Black students.” To recap, CSULA has decided to kowtow to exaggerated leftists demands by establishing segregated learning communities, throwing money at the “problem,” forcing all students to take mandatory diversity courses, and hiring psychologists specifically for black students. Racism has been cured at CSULA. In all serious, though, President Covino is just another in a line of administrators who’ve caved to leftist demands, hoping they’ll be satiated. The problem, however, is that leftist mobs are never satiated. Give them $100,000 and they’ll ask for double. Luckily, however, Young America’s Foundation is here to help, and to provide a dose of sanity to CSULA. On February 25th , YAF will be sending conservative provocateur Ben Shapiro to CSULA, as part of the Fred R. Allen lecture series. Despite the fact that leftists on campus have already claimed¬†that Ben’s lecture will “damage their mental health,” he’s sure to provide a bit of common sense that is severely lacking at CSULA. Said CSULA Young Americans for Freedom chairman Mark Kahanding, who is himself of minority descent, “The black student union is making demands that will have a huge negative impact on the school. The most egregious demand is the demand to make mandatory ‘diversity’ courses, where every student will now have to take a diversity course and a race course. These classes indoctrinate students, telling them that they are being oppressed and ‘weak’ because of ‘racism.’ Under the banner of ‘diversity’ the black student union is getting away with more money for their own use. I look forward to seeing Ben Shapiro come and expose these ‘tolerant’ liberals for what they really are.” Want to bring conservatism and sanity to your campus? Contact us today!
