Florida college students on Sunday slammed a California university for urging its non-white students to report professors who cause “race-related stress.”
California State University Monterey Bay officials published material on the institution’s website under the Personal Growth and Counseling Center section, which suggests students “think broadly about what could be an act of racism,” which includes a professor consistently not calling on them or minimizing their contributions and teaching racially biased curriculum.
However, three Campus Reform correspondents told “Fox & Friends Weekend” on Sunday it only pushes the broader issues of far-left liberal colleges injecting the “woke” agenda into college classrooms.
“I believe when Francis Bellamy wrote ‘One Nation under God, Indivisible,’ we oftentimes overlook that word indivisible,” Florida State University graduate law student Darryl Boyer said. “We must stop dividing our nation and come together as one.”
Boyer, a black student who earned his undergraduate degree at the University of North Florida before entering his current graduate program, said he has never felt discriminated against based on the color of his skin.
According to Cal State Monterey Bay’s website, race-related stress cause symptoms ranging from psychological issues like anxiety, depression, paranoia, and self-blame. Other concerns noted on the website claim physiological health problems may arise, including heart disease, hypertension, and muscle tension.
“Don’t ignore or minimize your experiences,” the website reads. “Talk to someone you trust, and report it.”
Boyer, however, said the fact the university is pushing students to tell on their professors for racism makes him “feel dehumanized.”“That really takes away the credibility for when things like that may really be happening,” he said.

University of Central Florida student Courtney McLain told the news outlet she has been witnessing more of the conceptual framework of diversity, equity, and inclusion, which claims to promote the fair treatment and full participation of all people, enforced in her school and taking away from academia learning.
“I’m frustrated because I feel like I’m not learning as much academically as I could because we’re putting so much money into this,” McLain said. “We’re seeing this in more and more schools across the country, that these students are just being believed automatically, which worries me because when I need to go to my administration about a problem, they don’t want to believe me since sometimes these students are actually saying things that are incredible.”
University of Florida student Emily Sturge said the move from Cal State Monterey Bay is another example of “wokeism taking over college campuses.”
“We’re seeing the left inject this woke ideology into college classrooms because this is how the left is winning,” Sturge said. “They’re winning the culture war because they’re injecting it into our course curriculum.”
Sturge called the ideology “absolutely crazy,” adding the movement has spread from blue states such as California to red states like Florida.
