One Geller Report reader points out, “Continuing with your report of the Biden DOE’s reversal of Trump’s determination that ‘racial affinity groups’ were a form of segregation, see this story on all the separate graduation ceremonies that Columbia Univ promotes.
If anyone there had proposed something like this 25, 30 yrs ago, their job fitness would have been questioned: today, they are celebrated as ‘visionary’ – or something.”

Columbia University Hosts 6 Different Commencements Segregated By Race, Sexuality, Income Level
By Charlie Kirk, March 10, 2021:
Columbia University will offer six different graduation ceremonies segregated by race, sexuality and income level.
The University is describing them as “Multicultural Graduation Ceremonies.” In the last week of April, graduating students will be offered virtual ceremonies in six categories – Native American, “LGBTQIA+,” Asian, “Latinx,” black, and “First-generation and/or low income.”
They cover graduates of Columbia College, Columbia Engineering, General Studies and Barnard College, its sibling women’s college. Students must register by March 21 to get their “multicultural graduation gift,” such as stoles, tassels and pins, and by March 31 to be listed as participants.
The virtual segregated ceremonies do not replace ceremonies for the whole Ivy League university and its individual schools, but rather provide “a more intimate setting for students and guests to gather, incorporate meaningful cultural traditions and celebrate the specific contributions and achievements of their communities,” the page says.
It’s not clear when Columbia first disclosed the segregated ceremonies. The earliest cached version of the page is from Friday night.
It was flagged the next day by Mercy Muroki, senior researcher at The Centre for Social Justice and graduate student in social policy at the University of Oxford.
Muroki who was clearly disappointed tweeted “Racially and sexually segregated graduation ceremonies. One of the ‘best’ universities in the world. If you want to know what going backwards looks like, this is it.”
The cheek of calling them 'Multicultural Graduation Ceremonies' when they are literally based on singular 'cultures'.
