ELLIOT IKILEI: University of Auckland's race segregated study room

In case you missed it: a photo has been doing the rounds on social media this week.




To have a room where only people of certain races are welcome is incredibly divisive, very racist, and shows just how dysfunctional our universities have become. 


The way I see it, segregation like this says two things:


1. That the university thinks brown people are weak and are unable to handle interacting in the real world.


2. That the university is holding certain races as special or higher up than the rest.

What makes this worse is that our taxes go toward funding the University of Auckland and policies like this. 


I find this offensive.


I stand with New Zealanders of any race in defending democracy and equality. 

We have to return to the words of Martin Luther King Jr. That famous saying that came to encapsulate the civil rights movement in America:


“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."


Hobson's Pledge will be writing to the University of Auckland to express our opposition to this regressive racist policy. If you would like to do the same you can email the media manager for the University of Auckland here.


Universities should be places where people of all races and backgrounds come together to share and debate ideas. They should not be places of racism and divisiveness.


He iwi tahi tatou. We are one people.



Elliot Ikilei is a spokesman for Hobon's Pledge. You can watch his short video addressing this issue here.

Basic Life Experience for everyone...... today, or in previous centuries, nationalities...... everywhere, regardless of skin colour. "Shi* happens. Get over it. Rise above it" otherwise you sink under.

When you wrap your children in cottonwool rather than allow them to experience the pitfalls that life can throw at you as you grow and mature, you end up with infants in an adult body. Adults, grownups, don’t need what nanny university is happy to provide. Universities should be filled with grown up men and women ready to take on the world.

Universities are at the heart of the woke cultural machine. Victory will not be a removal of signs, or shuffling of chairs. It must be destruction of their government paid wasp hive. Complete destruction.

You say universities are at the heart of the woke cultural machine. I take it you never managed to experience university life yourself or you wouldn’t be so off the mark.

I have written directly to that university and expressed that my disappointment is extreme

Originally Universities were founded as corporations of students and teachers who had the same interests in pursuing knowledge and were acknowledged as legal entities. Those inside Universities formed united communities. Why should they be divided, segregated now? Once you are at University, your identity at University soil is that of a student or a teacher. You leave your religion, ethnicity, political party membership, gender identity etc. at the door.

Quite!

But I would also expect studies to include for lunacy to be found in various aspects of the humanities...

It is possible this whole charade is no more than an exercise in quest of furthering a stupidity.

Are they not at Uni to explore the prospects of such.... inclusive of their own ?.


I find it all rather entertaining....a more modern approach perhaps, but after all said and done, gluing your self to the road becomes a ad nauseam act to those who need no further proof of an intellect not yet attained.
