Petition claims Louisiana State University “Tigers” mascot is racist and the “most prevalent confederate symbol in the United States.” I thought the Confederate flag was the most prevalent Confederate symbol? And what do tigers have to do with the confederacy?

Professors at American University published a letter addressed to black female students saying the campus may feel “hostile” and “dangerous” and they vow to add more “minority voices” and “intersectional studies.” Hmmm… why does their campus feel hostile and dangerous? And why won’t they respond to media inquiries?

Harvard president warns against making campuses Liberal bubbles and asks students, if it’s ok to silence hateful ideas and conservative voices, what’s going to stop anyone from silencing them one day? She goes on to ask, “If some words are to be treated as equivalent to physical violence and silenced or even prosecuted, who is to decide which words?” Good question.
