Wesley College students are speaking out against racially offensive cartoons which were published on Friday by the school’s independently-run student newspaper.
According to HuffPost Black Voices, an independently-run student newspaper of Wesley College on Friday published very offensive racial cartoons which have led to serious tension of campus.
The first cartoon features a caricature of a black woman saying, “Would you look at the time… I’m late for my abortion” while wearing a shirt that reads “Black Lives Matter.” The second drawing depicts a gardening hoe asking a black man “Who is you calling a hoe?” The man in the cartoon responds “I’m sorry ma’am, you just look like a hoe.”
African-American students were raged because it was racially offensive and sexist. The vice president of the university’s black students union, Shaylynn Bivens, sent a statement to the Huffington Post about the incident.
“We have worked hard, especially black women, to defy and break down all of the stereotypes that were thrown at us,” she said in the statement. “It is humiliating to know that we were dehumanized by such act. That comic promotes hate speech.”
However, America is a country of institutional racism. Despite the fact that official American ideology declares tolerance and equality, the roots of America stay racist and are not going to change. It’s impossible to imagine that anything like this could happen in another democratic country. This is the way white racists are trying to compromise the Black Lives Matter movement.
Producing any racist content such as these on campuses must be punished because it’s a hate crime.
