In the 21st century, America has devolved from its constitutional principles in order to hide or remove those things which make us uncomfortable. Statues of American (and Confederate) war heroes, and speech we don’t agree with were the first to be tucked away. Now, the country has decided to embrace segregation.
For example, a high school in Michigan – naturally – has scheduled a prom for Muslim girls only.
With the goal of creating a “safe space” in mind, a Detroit school has set out to hold a girls-only prom to celebrate traditional Muslim customs. It’s being created for girls who would otherwise be prohibited by their ultraconservative Muslim families from going to regular proms, where attendees are allowed to have fun and dance with members of the opposite sex in good old American tradition.
Hamtramck High School’s girls-only “Princess Prom” was first organized in 2012 by a group of five Muslim girls to give them the opportunity to go to a “safe space” prom. In 2016, 230 girls showed up. This year, they’re expecting at least 250.
The event is “intended to create a safe space for Muslim girls who normally cover up in hijab to let their hair down in an environment with no boys and no cellphones.”
This is not an isolated incident. Harvard is holding a commencement for black students only this year.
Look, if leftists want to embrace segregation, I’m not going to stop them. I will, however, point to these events when leftist lunatics claim conservatives are the real racists.
