Canadian Concordia University hold’s its first “Race-segregated” Graduation.

May 25, 2021

When signing up to be part of the segregated graduation ceremony, question 7 on the Google forms asks “Do you identify as Black?”.* As you can notice, the question ends with an asterisk, simply because this question in itself needs clarification due to this peculiar wording with “identify”, and whether or not the institution will have to identify my race upon admissions, which would be breaking section 15 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedom, based upon restricted access to a service solely based on skin colour (which it is in this case). Notice the lengthy explanation they offer for this, noting that “Black experiences” are only experienced as Black, African and Afro-diasporic communities, implying that only certain communities can experience certain situations, which is racist by definition. By wokeism standards, this is brave and empowering… be racist.
