    Racist blacks. Hilarious that not to long ago black people fought to stop segregation and now they are the leaders ushering in modern day segregation.

    I'm realizing black people can't do anything for themselves in society. They need expectations to be lowered for them, special applications for medical school, their own graduation ceremony. Hey, the world is competitive. If UofT can make it easier on these blacks to succeed, then go for it. It's that or selling drugs and committing other horrible crimes. So when an non-black has to face the real world, UofT (pressured through black protests on how blacks can't do anything right on their own), need 'the white man's help' into becoming successful. LOWERED EXPECTATIONS…maybe that's why a student in the U.S. claimed he was black (when he wasn't) to gain admission into a program, cause it was easier to be accepted into the program if you were black.

    Wow, since when did colour of ones skin give you special treatment…black privilege??? The rise of black privilege…just protest until you get what you want, forget hardwork and determination…blame the white man or the 'system'.

    Heck, maybe i'll schedule a white's only graduation ceremony! (No Greeks or Southern Italians)
    Oh wait, can't do it. Only okay for visible minority groups.

    Why is segregating yourself a good thing?

    As a black man, and as a graduate of an HBCU, I actually do not agree with this seemingly growing trend. I know that everyone Black person does not have the opportunity, or desire, to go to an HBCU but I just do not get the thought process behind attending a PWI but wanting to have your own graduation. Like, were non-Blacks allowed to attend and be recognized at this event? If not, that's kind of defeating the purpose of inclusion is it not? I mean honestly, being very frank, if some white student decided to have a graduation celebration for just whites, we would all be up in arms. I just don't get the purpose behind these separate graduations, especially when the attendees are still participating in the general graduation. Sometimes people great problems with their well meaning intentions.

    So, Canada actually encourages racial segregation?
