In another act of defiance supposedly against white supremacy and privilege, students affiliated with the Black Lives Matter movement stormed the Dartmouth University library a few days ago, while yelling racist remarks against white students in the area. In response to the said “protest,” at least one Dartmouth University administrator offered an apology — to the very students who caused the disturbance in the first place.
Media reports show that “protesters” chanted phrases such as “Fuck you, you filthy white fucks!” “Fuck you and your comfort!” and “Fuck you, you racist shits!” The Dartmouth Review and anonymous users of the popular college app YikYak even reported that the “protesters” got into physical confrontations with female and male students alike.
Rather than chastise the “protesters” for disrupting the peace and quiet of the school’s library, Dartmouth vice provost for student affairs Inge-Lise Ameer instead apologized to the students who participated in the “protest” for the negative coverage they’ve received from media outlets.
“There’s a whole conservative world out there that’s not being very nice,” Ameer said. She noted that no students had filed any complaints about violence, claiming the event was nothing more than a “peaceful meeting” turned “political protest.”
