Hofstra U. black student organizations want zero tolerance for ‘hate speech’
Black student groups at Hofstra University are demanding the school adopt a zero tolerance stance against “hate speech,” one of 13 total demands sent to campus officials earlier this month.
According to The Hofstra Chronicle, the organizations — which include the Black Student Union, the Hofstra NAACP and a group called “Strictly Steppin’” among others — want “students, faculty and administrators equally accountable for any form of hate speech.”
Hate speech is defined by the coalition as “speech that is intended to cause harm, offends/insults or encourages violence toward an individual or group on the basis of race, sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, social or economic class, disability or other protected traits.”
Students in violation of the policy would face anything from a fine to expulsion, whereas faculty would be subject to an “investigation in accordance with Title IX.”
This demand also notes students want space at the end of semester evaluations to “speak freely about racism in classrooms.”
Further, the coalition wants Hofstra Public Safety to be held accountable “for the racist encounters that students have been recounting” on platforms such as the (anonymous) @blackathofstra Instagram page.
