Cornell Requires All Students to Get Vaccine – Except Black Students

  08 Dec 2020

Cornell University recently announced an exception for minority students in regards to its mandatory flu vaccine policy. The university’s website says that “students who identify as Black, Indigenous, or as a Person of Color (BIPOC)” can apply for an exemption from the mandatory vaccine rule if it makes them uncomfortable.

The mandatory vaccine policy applies to all students and faculty members.

“Ithaca students with other concerns / extenuating circumstances may request an exemption from the Fall 2020 flu vaccination requirement that is part of the university’s COVID-19 Behavioral Compact,” the university’s website says. “Students who identify as Black, Indigenous, or as a Person of Color (BIPOC) may have personal concerns about fulfilling the Compact requirements based on historical injustices and current events.”

The university claims that they created the exemption for minority students because minority groups have historically been mistreated by medical professionals. The university also said that minority students may not want to take the vaccine due to police brutality in the United States.

The website reads,

“For example, historically, the bodies the of Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color (BIPOC) have been mistreated, and used by people in power, sometimes for profit or medical gain. It is understandable that the current Compact requirements may feel suspect or even exploitative to some BIPOC members of the Cornell community. Additionally, recent acts of violence against Black people by law enforcement may contribute to feelings of distrust or powerlessness. We know this history and validate the potential concerns it may raise.”

  1. Given that vitamin D has shown to be a significant factor in an individual’s immune response, especially to Covid-19, this is totally backwards and completely insane. The darker one’s skin, the less responsive that individual’s body is to the sun’s vitamin D factory within their own skin. Therefore, the darker the skin, the more one needs the vaccine. The school should be encouraging students to take the vaccine and most especially those with darker skin should be informed of the vitamin D connection. Vitamin D supplementation should be encouraged too. To know this and to do the opposite is the definition of racism.

    1. No one needs a vaccine and vitamin D as a supplement does more harm than good. If all the allopathic “interventions” actually worked, the U.S., which is the most medicalized country on the planet, would have by far the healthiest, most robust population. This is demonstrably and obviously not the case. Read Weston Price’s book and learn what actually makes for a healthy population. Optimal health has never and will never, come in a pill or syringe.

  2. I believe we are created equal that is discrimination, plus we the people are free and are capable of doing what we dam well please when comes to what we do for our bodies than you.

  3. WHAT A BUNCH OF IDIOTS! THERE IS ONLY RACISM BECAUSE OF ILLETERATS LIKE YOU GUYS! SERIOUSLY? YOU WILL, WILL, WILL ANSWER TO GOD FOR YOUR HATREDM UNKINDNESS, SLANDER, LYING. HE’S TH FINAL JUDGE! COLLEGE IS CRAP…I KNOW, I WHENT THERE…SOCIAL WASTE OF TIME! I PRAY YOUR COLLEGE AND ALL WHO THINK LIKE YOU FAIL AND GO BANKRUPT! SOTS!

  4. Excuse me, but how disgustingly racist can these postrior depression “intelligenicia” get.” If everyone wants to be treated equally then they have to accept the way the main populace is being treated.

  5. Cornell must believe minorities are immune from the flu, Cov19 and physical illness! Does that mean at Cornell, minorities are not require to do course work or take test! Is this racism too???

  6. Ridiculous .. rules r meant 4 EVERYONE ..
    Sadly this rule hurts those who need the vaccine the most … as African Americans are the ones most susceptible to viruses such as Covid ..

    My comment is not meant in any way to undermine the mental struggle that African Americans may feel due to horrible treatment during slave era .. but to give them power to think for themselves in 2020 .. as although we hav some ways to go .. in many ways “we have overcome” ..

    All lives matter .. all should be encouraged to get whatever vaccines are available ..

  7. Cornell University is no longer run by people with common sense as was the case when I attended. Over the years they have slowly, but surely, turned into a Socialistic community where “all people are equal, except some are more equal than others.” I am now totally ashamed to call myself a Cornellian.

  8. Just like abortion, another way to kill off the unwanted population. When the hell are people going to wake up and see what the government is doing . Politicians do not have your best interest in mind.
    WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!

  9. This is absurd. Every other student not mentioned in the exemption should resign from school and collectively sue this institution off the map.

  10. So Cornell’s educated idiots are asking the most vulnerable to opt out of getting the vaccine if they feel uncomfortable getting it. Do they really believe this is in the best interest of those students, I think not. Sure we all should have the option and educated information to choose if we wish to receive a vaccine or not. But to single out a group or groups of people and tell them they don’t have to comply if they feel uncomfortable. That folks is not being inclusive and violates your racism policy I’m sure. I would say to all students at Cornell to educate themselves about the vaccine and you alone make the decision if you want to receive it or not. And vehemently question those that made these comments as to why they don’t want certain groups to receive this vaccine.

  11. One of the most idiotic things I’ve read. They’re just as susceptible to the flu or Covid. If they’re not vaccinated, doesn’t that encourage the spread of the viruses?

  12. Cornell University should lose any tax exemp status or any taxpayer funding because of their blatant racism. Any special considerations based on race is, by definition, racist.

  13. That is an act of disgusting discrimination against all students of other races…they should be smacked we with a huge class action lawsuit for that!!! Maybe if they lost some of their money and prestige they would have to treat all students and faculty with more respect…
