UC Irvine having a little Swastika Problem
Bad News - Campus Muslims and Jews are sensing a bit of tension, which the Jewish Collegiate News says stems from the Muslims:
“I hate that things like this happen,” [UCI Chancellor Michael] Drake responded, acknowledging that there has been speech on campus promoted by the Muslim Student Union (MSU) that is largely hateful. Drake called hate-speech “vile,” “awful,” and “stupid,” and said it is “weak” human beings who engage in such speech. The chancellor also asserted that hateful speech does absolutely nothing to promote understanding and tolerance.
Gomez emphasized that though hate speech may be present, he would not seek to curtail it, as “one person’s hate speech is another person’s education.”
