Hate Message Targeting Minority Women Found on CMU Campus
A hate message was found on the campus of Central Michigan University last night. According to a news release, three women of color were targeted when someone wrote the derogatory remarks on a message board on the students' dorm room door.
University President Bob Davies responded quickly, saying such actions will not be tolerated.
My sincere apologies and concern go out to our students, their families and their friends. This is an attack not only on three young women of color, it is an attack on all of us. On all of CMU. On all of Mount Pleasant.
I assure you racism, misogyny, bigotry and hatred will not be tolerated on this campus. Many leaders, offices and teams across campus are involved in investigating this, determining our next steps, and supporting those affected and our entire university community.
I want to reassure the three bright, talented students who were targeted by this reprehensible incident that we are proud to have you as members of our campus community. This is your home, your community. And that message goes to each and every one of our students.
The release went on to say that the matter will be taken seriously and that the CMU community needs to do a better job when it comes to diversity.
