Clearly these students are not learning much from their history and government classes. They should know that race-restrictive elections are unconstitutional in the United States. Unfortunately, liberals do not seem to care about the facts. This is what happens when there is a culture of political correctness on college campuses. Students care more about feelings than facts. One liberal student even said “I don’t need to see statistics to know that people feel under-represented.”
This problem at Cornell proves that political correctness still reigns supreme on many university campuses. Feminists and LGBT activists like to complain about how they are deprived of equality. However, the race-based elections they propose are not equal at all. These liberal college students need to understand that America’s democratic elections are designed to give every citizen an equal voice in how their government is run. That equality is what makes America’s government so unique and effective. When someone is not allowed to vote in an election because they are white, male, or heterosexual, that takes away that person’s voice. Cornell’s Student Assembly should not take away the rights of students to vote just because they are not in any minority group. That is un-American and unconstitutional under the Equal Protection Clause.
