Ohio University Students Hold Town Hall Event to Promote Diversity and Fight Microaggressions

Ohio University Students Hold Town Hall Event to Promote Diversity and Fight Microaggressions

“The meeting stemmed from recent racist threats on campus.”

It’s so difficult to take people seriously when they start talking about microaggressions.

ABC 6 reports:

Ohio University students host town hall to discuss race, diversity issues on campus

A group of students at Ohio University said they are fed up with racist threats and microaggressions on campus.

They hosted a discussion about diversity Monday night in a town hall meeting, to share experiences and brainstorm solutions to the problem.

“It’s kind of difficult to be here for as long as I have and to continue seeing these things happen,” Ohio University senior Alexandria Gordon said.

The meeting stemmed from recent racist threats on campus.

Last week Ohio University police began investigating at least four incidents, one where a black doll was taped to a dorm room door, another where a trash bag was left outside a dorm room with a note taped to it with racist and misogynistic messages.

Students held a peaceful march and protest on Friday.

“It’s affecting all of us, it’s not just me who feels unincluded, it’s not just me who wants to be seen, it’s everyone on campus who wants to be seen,” said Giah Harper, Ohio University freshman and co-organizer of the town hall.

Many students shared their experiences of being called racial slurs both on and off-campus.

“And then a truck pulls on by and I hear the hard ‘r’ a couple of times,” said Julian Ross, Ohio University graduate student and captain of the football team.

Others said they feel isolated in their programs or dorm buildings, being one of just a few people of color, if not the only one.

Is a pile of microaggressions what led Will Smith to commit assault?

Words are violence says the left!

    No. It was the low impulse control his mind are known for.

    /famous people to believe they are entitled. Who did you think I meant?

So let me get this straight — we’ve reduced the problem with the “n-word” down to the “r-letter”?

I don’t do microaggression. I do macroaggression. 🙂

What is “the hard ‘r'”? Did someone call this kid a “Republican”? What a horrible insult!! Them is fighting words, likely to lead to a Will Smith slap!!

Black female student turns out to be the perp in 5,4,3,2….

I don’t understand the thing about the hard R. With somebody please explain this to me? Also does this mean annual talk like a pirate day will be canceled because it’s racist?

Unlike micro aggressions, some of the incidents noted in this article appear to be legitimate grounds for discipline.

The hoaxes never stop, do they?

As always, the demand for “racism” by the Left greatly exceeds the actual supply of genuine racism.

    But they make up for it with increasingly stringent laws such that normal behavior is eventually deemed “racist” or whatever by the leftists.
