Oh No, I’m Marginalized!

What happened to the days when people went to college to acquire an education and hopefully prepare for a good job?  Now we have campus clowns who are complaining about being “marginalized”.  They want safe spaces, segregated seating, faculty changes, and even free money.  They want buildings renamed and statues torn down to erase all traces of history that “offends” them.  Isn’t ISIS doing that too?

These crybabies don’t get it.  The fact that they’re in college at all means they’re privileged, not marginalized.  There are plenty of capable young people in this country who would love to be in their seats, and would probably take advantage of the opportunity instead of disrupting the campus.

So, crybabies, let’s look at who’s really marginalized.

The thousands of veterans who died waiting for medical care from the dysfunctional VA certainly were marginalized.  So are the thousands of homeless veterans and those still waiting to see a doctor.  Every day 22 heroes who served their nation honorably commit suicide because our government has marginalized them.

Things get worse outside our borders.  Around the world millions of people suffer from oppression, starvation, and illness.  Are they marginalized?

Slavery is still practiced in some parts of the world.  Would you call people in chains marginalized?

Around the world millions of young girls are denied even a basic education and future opportunities because of their gender.  Would you call these girls marginalized?

In India remnants of the caste system still isolate people and sometimes lead to violence.  Are the lower castes marginalized?

No kiddies, you’re not marginalized; you’re spoiled brats; pawns of a president who has divided the nation; and products of a public school system that creates an illusion that the world is “fair” by awarding everyone for showing up, so here’s a reality check:

No one “owes” you anything.  You already have more opportunity than most of your peers.  If you don’t take advantage of it you have no one to blame but yourselves.

You may “owe” if your actions incur costs to the school or it’s students.  If you really believe in your agenda, take responsibility for it’s consequences.

Your right to whine doesn’t suspend the right of serious students to get the education they’re paying for.

If people ignore you it’s because you’re experiencing equality.  As I said in a previous article, the US will have achieved equality when no one talks about it any more.  Special treatment isn’t equality.

College isn’t a prison and no one is forcing you to be there.  If you hate it that much you’re free to leave.  Maybe you should.
