NY Public University Holds First Annual Non-White Variety Show, Dubbed “Multicultural Extravaganza”

Last Friday evening, Binghamton University — the State University of New York — held a variety show meant for non-white constituents, called the “Multicultural Extravaganza”. And apparently, this is the first annual event for what is an exclusionary talent show that fetishizes foreign cultures and shits upon our own. From The BU Pipedream:

Students gathered in the Anderson Center on Friday night as the Binghamton University Multicultural Resource Center hosted its first Multicultural Extravaganza.

Attendees were welcomed by a performance from the BU Gospel Choir, followed by speeches from administrators, including BU President Harvey Stenger. He said that events like these are important since they both unify and educate students.

I’m not sure how a talent show that specifies exactly how incredibly different all our cultures are is supposed to “unify” students, but OK. Ever since middle school, I never understood the dichotomy of the administration simultaneously claiming both that “we are all the same”, yet holding multi-cultural seminars to show us exactly how different our cultures really are.

So are we all the same? Or are differences in cultures supposed to be celebrated? I suppose an argument could be made that they are not completely mutually exclusive, as one can recognize our similarities in certain areas while celebrating our differences in others. But those type of programs never actually do that, they all just display how different we are and then irrationally tell us we’re all equal with no explanation. Even as a child, I instinctively knew that the diversity mumbo jumbo was bullshit.

Shelsie Lindor, a senior majoring in integrative neuroscience, said she thought the event was highly beneficial for freshmen and she sees potential for the program in the future.

“The event was a great idea because this is the first time the University is holding an event like this,” Lindor said. “I feel like a lot of times freshmen don’t know what kind of organizations or even the kind of cultures that are on campus so this is a great way to showcase that. Just by looking at the program, you can see how much work went into putting this together and I definitely see it as a helpful and fun event for years to come.”

I have to wonder if the school would be cheering a similar program made by a variety of white groups meant to each show off a different European nationality/culture in the same way. Would the school also embrace the multiculturalism of Europeans and feel that its an educational and unifying show for the students? We all know that it would be branded a neo-Nazi hate group and would be banned by the school and/or protested violently.

It’s great to see the entire administration put so much effort into supporting them, and I’m glad everyone had a good time. Isn’t everything just more fun without those pesky crackers being allowed a platform?

  • I take it you didn’t have much time to proofread this one? Just seems so repetitive at parts. You literally quote the exact same passage twice, and in your second paragraph (the one after the first quoted passage), your first sentence and last sentence seem to be pretty much the same thing.

    Anyway, I think the idea behind “we’re all equal yet different” isn’t that hard to grasp. It’s basically just saying that we all have richly varied backgrounds, but ultimately, everyone has the same worth as human beings. That isn’t to say that I’m siding with this sort of event, though. I think in these people’s minds, “cultural” is equivalent to “tribal”, and it really is difficult to associate such a thing with white culture because, in the grand scheme of things, we really are the minority race globally, but we also happen to stand out because most of us occupy the developed world. The only “tribal” thing I can associate with whites off the top of my head is Celtic culture. If anything, that should be testament to how little white heritage is actually known, and why it’s all the more relevant to include it in an event like this.

    but remember, when people call out that multicultural and diversity are just subtle forms of racist anti white expression it’s accused of sounding conspiracy theory or silly

  • SJW “diversity” = no white people
    SJW “inclusivity” = no white people

    SJW-feminist “diversity” = no straight white men
    SJW-feminist “inclusivity” = no straight white men

    “The event was a great idea because this is the first time the University is holding an event like this,” Lindor said.
    That reasoning is nonsense. The Uni has never had a “Used Needle Extravaganza” either, but because it would be the first time, that apparently is the only qualification needed to be a great idea!

      Now knowing the type of people on the campus, a “Used Needle Extravaganza” might not be a bad idea…

  • Dave The Sandman

    Cultural Diversity? Yeah……riiiiiiiight

    It would be useful if universities had a SJW indicator (or lack there of in the case of Chicago) so that white students know not to apply for their own benefit and safety.

      Yeah, I heard about the University of Chicago as well. Getting rid of safe spaces and not catering to trigger warnings and not banning invited speakers just for having an opinion whiny snowflakes may not like.
