colleges, and the US are screwed

‘I stand by what I said’: KU student body president not backing down from controversial retweet

KU Student Body President Niya McAdoo drew angry reaction when she retweeted “happy friday everybody. Death to america.” on Sept. 3. McAdoo said she intended no call to violence. What she does want is an end to the country’s support of systemic racism.


LAWRENCE
Niya McAdoo said she hasn’t been surprised by the backlash, some of it in viciously racist emails and social media, to her retweeting the phrase “happy friday everybody. Death to america” on Sept. 3.

“I think that the phrase, ‘Death to America,’ is a triggering phrase for people. Most people have seen that phrase being said by countries outside of the U.S.,” said McAdoo, a 23-year-old senior and KU’s new student body president. “In no way was that the intention... disrespect or call to violence to any specific group, veterans or military folks.

“But ultimately I stand by what I said. Because, to me, the America that I live in is not an America that supports me.”

So she wants to enjoy the rights of freedom of speech but I bet she gets worked up over others' desire to enjoy free speech.

how in the frick hasn't twitter banned her? I mean, a former president of the United States is banned...

You can tell no one pays attention to student body elections in college.

Having the ability to say this is exactly the opposite of her statement.

Not hard to figure out why “she” is such a miserable liberal.

it's bowing in the middle, obviously overloaded. Probably needs bracing and supports.

"I hate America and it doesn't support me," says the college kid currently enjoying access to (on paper at least) a better education than most of the women on this planet have an opportunity to enjoy that could (assuming she doesn't have a retarded degree that isn't useful) propel her to financial success in the future that 75% of the world could never dream of attaining.

Yet she is President of the student body at a large university.

Self awareness should be a required course starting in middle school.

About 1/20 of student bodies vote in student body elections. Conservatives could take over student governments very easily.

Neil McAdoo, a white male student, said he hasn’t been surprised by the backlash, some of it in viciously racist emails and social media, to his retweeting the phrase “happy friday everybody. Death to minorities” on Sept. 3.

Most people have seen that phrase being said by countries outside of the U.S.,” said McAdoo, a 23-year-old senior and KU’s new student body president. “In no way was that the intention... disrespect or call to violence to any specific group, veterans or military folks.



Now let's just imagine folks that a quote like this was put out there. I wonder how that bolded part would play in the media.

So systemic that she’s voted in as student body President AND allowed to make comments like these with no repercussions
