Mizzou’s paying the price for lame response to racial protests

If the University of Missouri thought its concessions to Black Lives Matter radicals would boost its appeal to students, it looks like it made a big mistake.

Six months after the radicals garnered national attention with fiery protests against supposed campus racism — and with Mizzou’s school year set to start in August — the university faces an enrollment drop of nearly 1,500 students. And a potential budget shortfall of $32 million.

“I am writing to you today to confirm that we project a very significant budget shortfall due to an unexpected sharp decline in first-year enrollments and student retention,” interim chancellor Hank Foley said in an e-mail recently.

Racism against Whites over the last 40 or 50 years has risen to common place and acceptable in the eyes of all minorities because of what was done many years ago to someone else. No one alive today owned a Black slave as is no one that owned my White ancestors centuries ago.

Slavery has taken many forms in our history but the one that overtakes us now is our slavery to Political Correctness. The Majority doesn't rule any longer. It's only the bad kid in class who yells the loudest and disrupts everything that gets the most attention.

Someday soon old will be new again. If you catch my meaning.
