The only thing you can do when you see things like this is A.) wonder where the rest of the faculty are and B.) hope they grow out of it.
It does raise some interesting questions, though. Do the kids not realize they are also white, and should probably not be there because they are de facto violating the rules via their whiteness? And why are they mostly only interviewing only white kids. And third, when did snapping take the place of clapping, or is that just something else I missed?
At any rate, they are kids, and college is where they are supposed to do stupid things, so they are at least in the right place.
I guess if you are a Republican, and this is the face of the left to you, it could be problematic. I think the best lesson they could learn from this is not the message they are trying to send, but the organizational skills that can be later put to use rallying around more solid causes and discovering that when it comes to change, showing up is 90% of the battle. As long as they are not violent or actually get someone fired for no reason, just let them be, I say.
If you are the parent of college-bound kids this should terrify you. If your child(ren) is gonna receive a useless education why not send them to a local cow college? Why waste money you could spend in your golden years? Better yet, why not just send them to truck driving school?
BTW: John Cole teaches communication at West Virginia University.
Full disclosure: My Problem Child attended Evergreen. His ex-wife’s parents both teach there. He is about a semester short of a BA in Art. He bartended while he was in school, and he now owns a bar in SeaTac and does art as a hobby.
