LOL -- "Students left "traumatized" after Students of Color Conference descended into chaos over who was most oppressed" http://www.thecollegefix.com/post/30436/ "This year’s University of California Students of Color Conference unproductively devolved into something of an “oppression Olympics” between different minority groups, prompting arguments between participants and ultimately leading to some canceled sessions at the annual event. **** She described the conference not only as an “oppression Olympics” but also “a safe space gone wrong” in her opinion article. ........“Tensions got high”........ “One of the students raised a question about why the only issues being discussed were those involving anti-blackness, prompting an African-American student to respond that black students are the most oppressed, to which a Muslim student made a comment about her people being bombed in the Middle East,” a participant told CF..... “I am very unhappy about how this conference was run. There needs to be accountability for the trauma some of the organizers made. And I didn’t appreciate my workshop being cancelled,” a student named Robert Gardner posted. “It was really hurtful to have other marginalized identities silenced because a small fringe of organizers decided that their oppressions are more important (talk about Oppression Olympics)…UC Irvine needs to formerly apologize to everyone for what they did because people were truly traumatized by their actions.” Gardner went on to say that this oppression, by UC Irvine Student Association, “can’t stand.” "
