University Of Arizona Students To Learn About Black Lives Matter ‘Guiding Principles’

University of Arizona is urging students living in on-campus housing to “learn about Black Lives Matter guiding principles” in their 2021-2022 resident curriculum, according to a tip received through Young America’s Foundation’s Campus Bias Tipline.

Students in university housing are being given examples of how to increase their cultural understanding, some of which include learning the BLM guiding principles, “addressing bias incidents,” and learning about “pronouns and gender identity.”

According to University of Arizona Housing and Residential Life’s website, “A residential curriculum is an intentionally implemented set of activities and interactions designed to promote student learning around focus areas.”

The residential curriculum at the school has four ‘pillars,’ which are listed as personal growth, connection, responsibility, and cultural understanding. In a photo of the alleged set of guidelines for teaching these pillars, it is revealed that the university may be promoting the Black Lives Matter organization and its principles.

Black Lives Matter’s co-founder Patrisse Cullors called herself and her fellow organizers “trained Marxists” in a 2015 video, reported New York Post.

“We are trained Marxists. We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories. And I think that what we really tried to do is build a movement that could be utilized by many, many black folk,” she continued.

Black Lives Matter found itself in hot water when its ‘What we believe’ webpage was revealed to espouse support for disrupting the nuclear family, reported Fox News. Before it’s deletion, the page read “We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and ‘villages’ that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.”

The organization also sought to dismantle the patriarchy along with “cisgender privilege” and referred to its supporters as “comrades,” according to the archived webpage.

Teaching students the “principles” of a Marxist organization is wrong on its face, however it is particularly unacceptable when it’s coming from a public university that receives taxpayer dollars. The Black Lives Matter organization and its principles do not contribute to cultural understanding, nor do pronouns and gender identity. These constitute an attempt at woke culture, not American culture.
