Apparently, UVa now can police the internet
However, this very simple action was not taken. Instead, Daisy Rodriguez, the assistant dean for Asian/Asian-Pacific-American students called the students responsible in to discuss it with them. Last time I checked, none of the faculty at the University of Virginia had domain over the internet. While the "officers" of these groups may need to make a change in their viewpoints, it is not the responsibility of the university to enforce something like that.
I usually do not agree with the Cavalier Daily Lead Edit, but they hit the nail on the head on this topic.
Any time the administration embarks on a crusade to appease offended students, they risk falling down a very slippery slope. There are any number of facebook groups which are potentially offensive[sic] to any number of people, not to mention daily words and actions; should students be hauled before a dean every time a peer is insulted?
UPDATE 10:30 PM: I found reason to bump this post up to the top of the blog. Not an hour after I posted this, I already saw my first comment. This comment has been deleted from the comment section, and I will not share it because it is far more disrespectful than anything covered in this post. I have defended Pastor John. the author of the offending comment, a couple times before, even though his blog runs on a far-right wing tilt, much further than I would ever dare to tread or even consider. However, these sort of posts will not be allowed. Consider this a warning for now John; I will not allow comments like this, and any similar comments from here on out will get you banned. You can say anything you want on your blog, but I will not allow comments like this on mine.
