Meh, looks like they offered BLM their own special rec room/safe space, and then promised to form a bunch of committees and that kind of thing. Thats not really caving.

I would have no problem with admitting Syrian refugees through a similar vetting process. Given the efficiency of our government, that...
I think its possible for intelligent, decent people to square the contradictions between a traditional worldview and the demands of a liberal society. The problem is that many people aren't all that intelligent. It's clear that the thousands of Europeans who have gone to fight for ISIS haven't been able to function in the face of these contradictions. I don't accept that Islam is inherently more contradictory to Western society than other worldviews. But it does seem to be...
