Princeton University President Christopher Eisgruber said that “racism assumptions” are “embedded in the structures of the university itself,” according to an open letter he issued earlier this month.
Eisgruber’s statements prompted the Department of Education’s Office of Postsecondary Education to initiate an investigation into this issue, according to the Sept. 17 Washington Examiner.
If the allegations of supposed racism are proven true, Princeton would have violated Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, through which it received tens of millions of dollars.
Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 states, “no person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”
Alleged racism in the United States is under attack from the violent riots that are causing harm in many U.S. cities since May 25, when African American George Floyd died while under arrest.
A recent study indicates that the Marxist group Black Lives Matters (BLM) participated in 91% of the demonstrations held since then.
Despite its claims, a leader of the BLM “anti-racist” movement, Yusra Khogali, expressed her hatred of whites on social media.
“White people are recessive genetic defects. This is factual,” Khogali said on social media, according to the Washington Times.
Black people simply through their dominant genes can literally wipe out the white race if we had the power to,” Khogali said in comments that were later removed.
Likewise, African American rapper and American radio and television personality Nick Cannon also made controversial comments about racism.
Cannon said whites are “a little less,” that they are “closer to the animals” and that they are the “real savages.”
Members of the BLM movement are heavily criticized for their Marxist ideology, in which struggle and violence are deeply rooted and dominate in their expressions and manifestations.
Conservative African American activist Candace Owens sees BLM as a Trojan horse designed to permanently alter American society.
“Black Lives Matter is a Marxist movement disguised as racial unrest. These thugs are delivering ultimatums to businesses & schools: Do as we say, or burn,” Owens tweeted.
“These ‘demands’ were posted by Marxists at James Madison University. We fight now, or lose America to violent communism,” Owens added.
