Eastern Kentucky University has complained about the freedom of speech of the people or person who put some flyers up concerning the genocide of White people.
In the flyer it is said that there is a “non-violent genocide against White people”, drawing similarities between White genocide by forced non-White assimilation and Tibetan genocide by forced Chinese assimilation.
University spokesman Marc Whitt said that the flyers were posted in classroom buildings that are used to train police and firefighter trainees.
Although no crime has been committed, Whitt says the university is launching an investigation to determine who posted them.
He said “At this point, no one has information leading to any suspects, so it would be premature for us to guess as to who or which group was responsible”.
Although there was nothing negative said about any non-White group in the flyers, a Black female professor says she thinks she was the target of the flyers, leading her to complain of harassment to the university officials.
Whitt went on to say “This is the first reported case of its kind in many, many years . . . So, we are taking a very proactive stance with this. EKU does not condone language that diminishes anyone or any group,” said Whitt.
If the leaders of the university cannot tell the difference between something neutral and something negative, just what are they teaching the students? It seems to them that if you don’t say something positive of non-White people every time you talk about race – you therefore must hate and oppose them.
In addition to the “investigation”, Whitt says that EKU will pay for and host a series of trainings and forums for the students, faculty, and staff. It is unclear whether these “trainings” will be mandatory or compulsory.
“Eastern Kentucky University works very hard as a public university to maintain an academic community that confirms one of our country’s greatest freedoms, that being the Freedom of Expression, while at the same time fostering a campus climate that’s open, inclusive, respectful and welcoming,”
