America’s melting pot is about to boil over, and college campuses are turning the flame up to high, with little or no regard to the consequences that may occur. At a time when the racial division is at an all time peak, the University of Tennessee at Martin, located in rural Western Tennessee is playing host to ” Social Justice in the Age of Black Lives Matter”, a conference being held February 16th, and the 19th-24th.
Although this is an annual event, this year brings with it some guest speakers and a movie that could be labeled aggressive and agitative. Once again, an opportunity to use a platform to help heal wounds and move communities from the anger and violence it has experienced is passed over.
One of the first events is the showing of “13th”, an inflammatory documentary promoting anti-police rhetoric, fueled with angry opinions on the criminal justice system, oppression, and their allegations of slavery.
The conference will also highlight speakers such as Kwame Rose, a young black man who earned his few minutes of fame during the riots in Baltimore, and the extreme radical activist Ash-Lee Woodard Henderson. Henderson, a member and organizer with Concerned Citizens for Justice and a board member of the Highlander Education and Research Center (formerly the Highlander Folk School) brings a plethora of social justice experience including organizing Black Lives Matter marches in Ferguson, and her fight on the coal industry in Tennessee. Back up..the Highlander Education and Research Center? Formerly known as the Highlander Folk School, it is interesting to note that institutions background with Communism.
Once again, it all comes full circle as we see young black activists being recruited by Communists, Socialists and Islamists, including George Soros and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). Soros donating $500,000 to the Black Lives Matter movement, and CAIR exclaiming the Black Lives Matter is their matter.
It is disturbing to see a Tennessee State University use their resources to promote what could be a training session for upcoming protests against America. Creating an environment where whiteness is evil, shaping young minds to believe they are slaves, and pushing an anti-American agenda.
As taxpayers of Tennessee, there should be two questions to ask. Who is paying for this conference? Listed on the conference poster for more information is an email address for the university, not an organization..the university.
In today’s political climate ,universities should be a place for fair and balanced debates and conversations. As we have seen though, that has not been the case. Were invitations extended to esteemed black leaders such as Dr. Carol Swain, Dr. Ben Carson, or retired Colonel Allen West? Doubtful, as the environment across campuses nationwide leans towards political correctness and anti American sentiment.
