    Student Government Rejects Resolution to Recognize Americans Killed on 9/11


    The University of Minnesota’s undergraduate student government rejected a proposal on Tuesday that would have allowed a campus-wide “moment of recognition” for the 2,977 Americans killed on Sept. 11, 2001 on future 9/11 anniversaries.

    The vote came after the group’s director of diversity claimed the commemoration would create “an unsafe space” for some students on campus.

    “Islamophobia and racism fueled through that are alive and well. When will we start having moments of silence for all of the times white folks have done something terrible?” he asked.

    Wow! I'm guessing this was decided because it could make Muslim students feel unsafe? Which is ridiculous! We should always honor those who lost their lives on that awful day.

    The fact that the school even has a "director of diversity" tells you all you need to know about colleges today. The PC virus has been inculcated in these schools for the last 50 years. They're starting to eat their own.
