I hate to look ignorant, but what are we protesting?

On the twitter feed it mentions Racism and intolerance. She also takes a swipe at the proposed investment in a Golf facility.

Is this because of the General Council and what she said at an event a few weeks ago?

Yes...though the SGA is trying to say its due to multiple instances of UNT letting down their minority students, but gives no specifics to said instances.

You nailed it, every post mentions little in the way of specifics. The System lawyer who said it didn't even work at UNT, she works in Dallas. I am all for equality but demanding a multi-million dollar building because of what was said at a free speech forum by someone not affiliated with the Denton campus seems to be a bit much. The SGA leader Yolian Ogbu also said that all police are terrorists, so I think that speaks to where logic and reason fit into the picture.

edited to show her exact quote was that  "police are america's terrorists"

It's really ironic, if I'm interpreting it correctly, that all of this was sparked from Caitlin Sewell using the slur as an example to support the idea that the first amendment protects offensive speech.  Because it does. She's not in jail for saying the word, and she shouldn't be.  But this also shows there are consequences to offensive speech, like losing your job. 

It's even more ironic because I think she was trying to make the point that there should be some form of government punishment for using offensive speech (which I find horrific personally).

Students like to protest. But screw them if they are trying to stop the golf facility. What was the swipe at golf about? 

I think this?

It strikes me as funny that they will be wearing all black with the discussions on here about the black uniforms.  Totally unrelated I know, but I still couldn’t help but snicker a bit.  Heck, maybe a few protesters will show up in gray😆

Ok Boomer.

I know this is supposed to be some insult to Baby Boomers.  I would take it as a compliment.

Yeah, I kind of feel the same way.  It makes me chuckle.

"Ok, boomer."

"Ok, dumbass."

Anyone who says "Ok, boomer", has never had to pay the mortgage.

the last Baby Boomers were born in 1964.

you think no one under the age of 55 owns a home?
