Students at the New York’s Sarah Lawrence College – one of the most expensive private school in nation—are demanding that all students that were not social justice activists give them money.
“Sarah Lawrence College is persistently ranked as one of the most expensive colleges in the United States, alongside Swarthmore and Harvard. As of 2017, it costs as much as $66,990 a year in fees, Dailycaller notes. College Fix reported that students at the New York’s Sarah Lawrence College are demanding that all students much pay college activists for their “emotional labor.”
This whole controversy was sparked by a Facebook post, in which students of the college discussing how a popular tree on campus was being removed. Social activists and social justice warriors (SJWs) were angered seeing that students were far more concerned about the removal of the tree than issues that the SJWs felt were important – issues like letting men into the women’s room, and shutting down free speech, and persecuting religions expression.
This led the social activists at Sarah Lawrence to demand that their activism be compensated by students who were deemed to not care enough about the “important issues.” Some individual students were even specifically called out to make payments. They students demanding payments even went on to post a link connected to a money exchange app, so that the students to begin to pay. “In honor of Women’s History Month, and the labor that women and femmes of color do for Sarah Lawrence every month of the year,” the post read. An attached image read, “Give your $ to Women & Femmes of Color.”
SJW students at Sarah Lawrence mobbed social media posts about mundane campus happenings, like the release of a snake, or scheduled lawn service to demand that fellow students only discuss issues like; “systematic racism,” “sexual assaults,” and “anti-Muslim hate crimes.”
“The issue that people talked abt [sic] the snake+ tree extensively but completely ignored the hate crimes against black+ Muslim students earlier this year…there’s a v [sic] clear issue in priorities here and it needs to be addressed?? No one’s saying that everyone shld [sic] never talk abt [sic] the snake its just ridiculous that people can do that but can’t be bothered to say a word abt [sic] the racism very present on campus,” one student argued.
One of the many social media posts demanded even more money for black and gay students, saying that, “nobody gives a s**t about the systemic problems at this school, give your $$$.” Concluding by screeching, “SERIOUSLY EVERYONE PAY … NOW!”
