All over the country, groups of students are making large and costly demands of their colleges and universities. These demands include: the firing of certain professors and removal of deans who are probably white and therefore represent "white supremacy," the renaming of buildings named after any particular person who may have owned slaves in the past, the creation of a diversity center, segregated housing for POC, and mandatory sensitivity training for staff, and a new curriculum of diversity studies. Failure to give in to these demands can lead to protests and "escalated consequences."

If the students don't like it they can leave. They aren't being forced to go there. There are other students that would probably love to go there and NOT cause problems. Don't give into them. The same as paying ransom.
The problem is that these views are privileged per political funding, so this IS the mainstream and politically pushed dogma at all colleges. Backed by Title 9 and the DoJ.
At what point do we stop editing people from history because they don't fit today's moral standards?
Should students protest a Barack Obama library because he opposed same-sex marriage until he "evolved" after the 2008 election was over?
Or for American flag burning while in college?
Sorry, free speech encompasses hate speech. The point is that you're supposed to be able to speak your mind. It's because snowflakes are easily offended that we can't. Besides, hate speech is in the first ear of the beholder.
If burning the American flag is hate speech, then that means he hates America. If that's the case he should have left instead of becoming president. That is unless he had another agenda. Think about it. ??????
The things that define real humans are human rights eg. Racial and religious tolerance.
Totalitarian societies remove human rights piecemeal.
Are you defending Hitlers legacy too? What's the difference to Adolf and a slave master? No difference.
Oz--in the case of Hitler, that was hate speech--"kill the jews." But saying most of things people have issue with today is not really hate speech; its that they just can't handle views different than their own. And history can't be changed.
