Skip to comments.Oberlin College(Ohio)cancels classes due to malicious happenings on campus
Posted on 03/04/2013 10:31:31 AM PST by karatemom
OBERLIN Classes for Oberlin College and the Oberlin Conservatory of Music have been canceled today so students and faculty members can discuss homophobic and racial statements that have been plaguing the campus.
College spokesman Scott Wargo said that statements were written on posters all over campus. According to a letter on the colleges website, there was a report Monday morning of a person wearing a hood and robe resembling a Klu Klux Klan outfit near Edmonia Lewis Center and the Afrikan Heritage Center.
This report is being investigated by both Safety and Security and the Oberlin Police Department, college president Marvin Krislov and other faculty wrote in the letter. This event, in addition to the series of other hate-related incidents on campus, has precipitated our decision to suspend formal classes and all non-essential activities for today, Monday, March 4, 2013, and gather for a series of discussions of the challenging issues that have faced our community in recent weeks.
There will be a teach-in led by the Africana Studies Department at noon in the Lord Lounge at the Afrikan Heritage House. At 2 p.m. a demonstration of solidarity will be held at the Wilder Bowl. The day will finish off with a community convocation at 3:30 p.m. at the Finney Chapel. The concovation was previously scheduled for Wednesday.

Has there even been a published report of how many such incidents are actually “boy cries wolf” (whether it is a sexist, homo’phobic’, or racist incident)?
Quite a few of the high profile cases were outright frauds, often committed by the alleged victim him/herself.
More False Flags to keep the useful idiots agitated.
The problem with some causes is just that nobody really has a contrarian view if it's a stupid cause. You've gotta make your own controversy.
According to their website-tuition, room and board amounts to $57,000+/year. I would be very angry if my child’s classes were cancelled if there was not an overt threat.
These ‘malicious happenings’ are probably as phony as most other incidents on campuses. They are done, or in many cases simply falsely reported by leftists to cause turmoil. The pattern emerged a long time ago, and I don’t believe them.
Lemme guess! They’re gonna “raise awareness!”
So if carried out with precise timing.........Spring break for faculty starts two weeks early this spring.
I bet mid-terms are scheduled for this week.
Libs will do anything to get out of work.
Off with you to our maoist re-education camp.
It seems to be a complex puzzle yet to be figured out despite naming buildings and such.
Oberlin's been a hotbed of leftwingers since the civil war. If there really was somebody dressed as a Klansman, the cops would have been all over it in a manner of a couple of minutes (Oberlin's a tiny little burg), it wouldn't have been some sort of vague rumor of "a report", it would have been recorded on every cell phone camera on campus, and the perp would be arrested, complete with pictures to all corners of the world.
We all know that terrible imaginary hate crimes proliferate in the minds of people wherever liberals exceed the carrying capacity of the land. We know also how, sometimes, just sometimes, some of the more committed liberals, make this stuff up to polish their "anti-racist" credentials.
I'd bet that this is one of those cases.
I agree the culprit is probably a leftist posing as a right wing lunatic. If you were able to take an honest poll, you would likely find over 95% of Oberlin students are well trained, compliant albeit apathetic leftists. Maybe a sixties era radical graybeard is doing it to try to shake them up.
Another Fake Noose/Hate Incident
This one occurred in a Baltimore firehouse. Like the swastikas at GWU last month, it also turns out to have been a hoax to create victims where there were none. . . .
Marvin L. Doc Cheatham, president of the NAACPs Baltimore chapter, referred to the note as a threat and said it should be treated as such.
Its got to go federal, Cheatham said. . .
Meanwhile, still no word on Columbia Universitys noose incident.
Yup, that’s usually what turns out to be the case, especially when these things happen on college campuses. I wouldn’t be surprised if this “Africana Studies department”, or some campus Diversity Coordinator, needs to justify their continued funding.
sounds like this is over hearsay
” What kind of a “ Rat Ship” are you running here???
That sounds odd. "Africana" means "African woman" in Italian, but as far as I know, the word "Afrikan," if it isn't a misspelling, doesn't exist in any language.
And for every attack motivated by racial animus or “homophobia”, there are at least 100 fabricated reports.
For every attack by whites on blacks motivated by racial animus there are dozens, if not hundreds, by blacks on whites. They just aren’t reported. I would also bet that homos kill far, far more homos than straights do. The cops in homo ghettos call it “homocide”.
Yeah, gotta make sure those whiney white trust-fund parasites get fully indoctrinated in "Afrikan culture" so they can learn to hate all the right people...
Obelin? Probably a boy who cried wolf.
“Marvin L. Doc Cheatham, president of the NAACPs Baltimore chapter...”
A partner in the law firm of Dewey, Cheatham, and Howe, no doubt.
My cousin went to this cesspool of homosexuals.
While a fine school of music, he stated that not a single day went by without one of these SSAD (Same Sex Attraction Disorder) creeps trying to hit on him.
Because they cannot reproduce they must recruit.
That Columbia professor was fired for multiple counts of plagarism. NB that the noose showed up on her door AFTER the University started the case against her. Imagine that.
Wimpy fags gone Wild.
Sounds like China during the ‘Cultural Revolution’, when they canceled classes to have self-criticism sessions.
Oberlin may well be the most left winged school in Ohio
