Dartmouth Administrator Sides With #BlackLivesMatter Protesters Who Disrupted Library
After protesters disrupted students studying in the school library Thursday with racist chants and harassment, at least one Dartmouth University administrator apologized… to the ones doing the harassing, that is.
As Mediaite reported earlier in the week, students affiliated with the #BlackLivesMatter movement disrupted students studying for exams. Media reports indicate that protesters chanted phrases such as “Fuck you, you filthy white fucks!” “Fuck you and your comfort!” and “Fuck you, you racist shits!” The conservative 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.
But according to The Dartmouth, at least one member of the administration is siding with the protesters. At a supportive meeting, Vice provost for student affairs Inge-Lise Ameer “apologized to students who engaged in the protest for the negative responses and media coverage that they have received.”
“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, saying it was nothing more than a “peaceful meeting” turned “political protest.”
