A Jew student argues to the administration of the University of North Florida that if you are a “racist” then you should never be allowed on a university campus as a student.
This kike, Noah Meyer, needs to learn some law relating to freedom of speech and freedom of expression. Or better yet, just keep his mouth shut.
Roughly 100 University of North Florida students gathered Monday morning to protest bigotry on campus after a photo surfaced last week of a shirtless UNF student holding a rifle while proudly displaying a swastika on one of his shoulders.
Administrators suspended Ken Parker, a 37-year-old student who was once a Grand Dragon in the Ku Klux Klan, because the content of the message was threatening, which was directed at the student group Students for a Democratic Society.
The protestors were met by a leader of a Central Florida neo-nazi group, a member of the Ku Klux Klan, the fiancee of the suspended student and another person who held up a Confederate flag.
Bert Colucci, a member of the National Socialist Movement, said that Parker was a member of their group that’s based in Central Florida. He said that if UNF tries to expel Parker, that the group would fight that in court.
“You can’t just go around kicking people out of school because of how they believe,” he said.
Colucci said he and the three other people with him were there to show support for Parker. However, he often baited the crowd with taunts of “communist” or “snowflake.” The crowd largely ignored his taunts.
Many students that showed up on Monday at Ken Parker’s disciplinary hearing do not feel university leadership has done enough to prevent racism from the Jacksonville campus.
Noah Meyer, a junior at the university, pointed to a recent string of news stories, in particular a social media post where two UNF students depicted members of the Black Lives Matter movement as monkeys. He also said that a noose had been hoisted from a tree in UNF’s main common area.
“The reputation this university is gaining is that it is a place where the administration allows white supremacy to run rampant,” he said.
This perception could have real impact on the University of North Florida’s future enrollment as minorities may feel unwelcome at a university that welcomes former members of the Ku Klux Klan.
However, it has not yet had that effect, according to UNF spokeswoman Joanna Norris.
“Our enrollment numbers are up,” she said in an email. “We have 16,526 students enrolled for fall 2017, that’s an increase of over 550 students from last fall. More than 30 percent of the student population is minority. UNF has a number of programs and services to help minorities feel welcome, including the Department of Diversity Initiatives, the Black Student Union, the Commission on Diversity Initiatives, among others.”
Monique Williamson, president of the Students for a Democratic Society and a junior at UNF, said she’s been called a racial slur used against black people at least twice while on campus. She said that she’s talked to a person that was recently accepted to UNF who will not attend the university because of the recent news coverage.
Williamson said that had she known what awaited her at UNF, she would have attended a historic black college instead of enrolling at the North Florida university.
“But I’m glad I’m here, because us standing united can make a true change on campus,” she said.
While the students prepared for their march Monday morning, Robert Jones, a homeschooled black student duel enrolled at UNF, walked by with his mother. The 16-year-old said that racism is everywhere and the racially tinged news about the campus would not determine if he would attend the school.
“You’ll have to deal with it no matter where you go,” he said.
At my former university there were many anti-white racist Mexicans, including the university president. The idea that anti-white racists should be welcome on campus while excluding Nazis, KKKers, etc. is nonsense.
This case may be a test run on banning students with “White Supremacy” tattoos.
