Segregated graduation is hypocritical

Despite their talk about the importance of a unifying experience, colleges and universities are holding special ceremonies for “affinity groups” at graduation (“Colleges expand ‘segregated’ graduation events”(The Washington Times, May 5). By doing so, they make a mockery of their high-blown rhetoric.

Graduation is not the time to celebrate differences among graduates.  Not only is the practice unlawful because it excludes non-members, but it also reinforces the feeling that group membership is more important than other considerations.
