    Claremont McKenna student newspaper stands up to ‘campus cry-bullies’

    An editorial in a student newspaper, the Claremont Independent, has taken a stand against the anti-free speech madness:

    We Dissent | The Claremont Independent

    From the editorial:

    We are adults, and we need to be mature enough to take ownership of and responsibility for our feelings, rather than demanding that those around us cater to our individual needs. The hypocrisy of advocating for “safe spaces” while creating an incredibly unsafe space for President Chodosh, former Dean Spellman, the student who was “derailing,” and the news media representatives who were verbally abused unfortunately seemed to soar over many of your heads.

    Lastly, we are disappointed in students like ourselves, who were scared into silence. We are not racist for having different opinions. We are not immoral because we don’t buy the flawed rhetoric of a spiteful movement. We are not evil because we don’t want this movement to tear across our campuses completely unchecked.

    We are no longer afraid to be voices of dissent.



    Well said, Claremont Independent! Too bad they don't give Pulitzers to college students.

    Colleges around the country need to hear from more voices of reason like those at the Claremont Independent.

    They don't say "uppity"....they say "arrogant" and "elitist"...atleast since January 20th, 2009.


    BTW, just meridian pining for the days of the police dogs and fire hoses....or maybe some "Kent State-style" stuff ...from his youth.

    How racial tensions boiled over at Claremont McKenna College - LA Times

    The college gets badly needed administrators on diversity and inclusion.

    Not giving up and speaking up IN SPITE OF THOSE who say straight out that you don't belong and then THEY quit, is how to get it done.

    It is a new racially ethnically inclusive day on campuses nationwide.

    Some of us have already been there for decades.

    Go Golden Panthers!!

    Ms. Rosie,

    LOL, Claremont McKenna College is has mostly White, Asian, and foreign students, with a 4.5% black representation, and it costs $66,000 a year to go there. Right, rich white kids are really put upon and uppity.
