Following outcry from Young America’s Foundation (YAF), the Department of Education has opened a civil rights investigation into segregated courses at American University.

“Back in August, we reported on American University piloting a new ‘black-affinity section’ of a Freshman-orientation course,” said YAF spokeswoman Kara Zupkus. “They really marketed it as being a safe space for black students so that white students would not have to be there while they divulged their trauma, really just segregating students based on their race.”
YAF received the information through its Campus Bias Tip Line, an effort that regularly exposes “discriminatory and biased actions from leftist professors, administrators, and schools.”
“(American U) immediately got a lot of backlash and one of our allies in the conservative movement who is a professor at the University of Michigan filed a civil rights complaint with the Department of Education because this is blatantly violating civil rights law segregating students by the color of their skin,” Zupkus said.

She said the situation is more common than the public might think.
“We see this a lot now, especially with Critical Race Theory (CRT) infiltrating our schools, where schools try to say that black students should be separated from white students under the guise of diversity, equity, and inclusion, (and) that in order for black students to feel safe to talk about what it’s like being a black student that they can’t be around white people which is a really damaging concept and idea,” says Zupkus. “I think that that is sadly going to even further be visible when students go into careers like journalism and education where students are not even going to be comfortable talking about important topics around people that don’t look like them.”

It’s all the more reason to tell YAF if you see or hear of something on campus.
“We work with our allies not only in the media but in the college sphere and in government to really get as many eyes on this as we can and to help expose it,” says Zupkus. “So, even if you think that, ‘oh, me submitting a tip isn’t going to get anywhere,’ it really will because we will work with our contacts to cultivate a real response here and put pressure on the school to change their policies.”
