Default ‘Make America Great Again’ whiteboard messages deemed ‘racial attack’ by campus bias

I don't know how these people get to class everyday without crying (I'm guessing most don't)...

‘Make America Great Again’ whiteboard messages deemed ‘racial attack’ by campus bias response team

Quote:
A series of messages left on dry-erase whiteboards at Skidmore College during the spring semester saying “Make America Great Again” were deemed racially motivated attacks, a determination made by the school’s Bias Response Group.

The group’s year-end report notes that the term – the tagline of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump — was written on the whiteboards of two female faculty of color, one of whom has “immigrant parentage.” One message appeared in March and another in April in separate buildings.

The report states the slogan “is associated with the political campaign of a candidate widely known to voice anti-immigrant and bigoted views.”

The report concluded that while the group “acknowledges that political speech is free and protected … [t]hese seemingly connected reports suggest a pattern of using the idea of political speech to target specific members of the Skidmore community with biased messaging. As such, the [group] does not interpret these messages as political speech but as racialized, targeted attacks.”

In April, after the so-called “Chalkening” kicked into high gear nationwide, “multiple faculty door whiteboards” at Skidmore were hit with “Make America Great Again” messages, the report states.

This time, a “majority of BRG members do not interpret these messages as political speech but as politicized, racialized, targeted attacks intended to intimidate,” the report adds, indicating some on the group may have dissented.

The phrase “Make America Great Again” isn't implicitly racist but it's association with Donald Trump, a racist, makes it an expression of racism.

NO more like the left wing is the racists, and always attack Trump for this.

It is a lie, and that makes you a liar now doesn't it?

Even GOP House Speaker Paul Ryan identified statements made by Donald Trump as a being the textbook definition of racism. Sorry but "the left wing is making it up" doesn't float the boat when even the right-wing is identifying Trump as a racist.

No, the words,"Make America great again" are not racist. This PC BS is so anti- free speech, but typical leftist fascism. People on the left are the most intolerant, except when it comes to gay marriage and abortion (both of which I support). Disgusting.

Ryan can kiss my ass and continue being Obama's sock puppet. I will use Trump's phrase anywhere, any time I feel like it, and race monkeys can shove it.

"race monkey"--any person who sees racism in damned near everything associated with something or someone he perceives as racist

You may not realize this, or want to believe it, but Trumps appeal is as much about getting rid of Ryan and Company as it is about defeating the Democrats.
