“A decade ago students were having lousy experiences on their campuses but there was not a way to let the world know,” said Shaun Harper, founder and executive director of the Center for the Study of Race and Equity in Education at the University of Pennsylvania told the Atlanta Journal Constitution. “Now students are beginning to understand that what they are experiencing is a national phenomenon. Social media is a tool for students to help communicate their issues,” he said.
Actually social media is a gathering place for the new agitator set to whine and cry about how they are put upon and subject to faux-abuse. And this is demonstrated every day on any number of college campuses throughout our country. And why does anyone need to “let the world know” when your little feelings get hurt?
But its not about hurt feelings or name calling. Now is about forcing real change – change driven by a tiny minority of miscreants and rabble-rousers – change the majority neither wants nor should accept.
