  • Student senator nixes plan to remove pro-Israel Sabra hummus from campus

    A Grand Valley State University student senator’s attempt to ban Sabra Hummus from campus as a result of the company’s pro-Israel ties has failed because there “might not be room for progression,” per the group’s committee report. Student Senator Jewel Haji stood before the university’s senate on February 4 to announce that she was working with the university to replace the hummus with a dip that has a less politically-charged background after a student reached out to her about the matter. According to Haji in the meeting’s minutes, “schools are banning Sabra Hummus because some of the company owners are supporting Israeli militant groups that are violating human rights and are hurting a lot of people. However, Grand Valley said there weren’t any other companies they could get hummus from, but I found one, sent it their way, and now I’m waiting to hear back from them.” [RELATED: Liberal students want to ban liberal Ben & Jerry’s from campus over Israeli ties] Haji initially told Campus Reform that “the university responded well” to her suggestion that they switch hummus brands and were “very much willing to meet and talk about the issues.” However, Haji later told Campus Reform that she has decided not to pursue her proposal further. “Unfortunately, campus dining does not necessarily have an alternative through their contracted distributor and therefore and I am longer pursuing this project.” While the group’s minutes were sure to include Haji’s efforts to boycott the pro-Israel company, they neglected to include Student Senator Benjamin Soltis’ voiced dissent. “Looking into an issue such as that is not only almost stupid, but very illogical. The IDF is the Israeli army and they do not commit human rights violations. People accuse the IDF of things all the time, yet it is Gaza and Hamas that continually put the children in front of their soldiers,” Soltis told Campus Reform. [RELATED: Israeli divestment bill seeking to boycott HP, Boeing vetoed at USF] Still, Maddie Cleghorn, GVSU Student Senate Chair supported Haji’s actions telling Campus Reform, “Senator Haji was doing her job of representing a concerned student interest by looking into adding alternative brands.” Despite removing support from its website in 2010, several schools have discussed Sabra bans or boycotts, including University of California Riverside and DePaul University.

  • MSU Police Department establishes 'Inclusion and Anti-Bias Unit'

    Michigan State University (MSU) established a new branch of its police force on Tuesday tasked with the duty of protecting students from threats of exclusion and bias. “It’s been a great effort for Michigan State to follow up on students’ concerns, and essentially interests for what they see as MSU becoming more diverse and inclusive campus in the future,” Vice President for Academic Affairs for the Associated Students of MSU Lorenzo Santavicca told WLNS News. The new “Inclusion and Anti-Bias Unit” was created to promote “harmony between the police and diverse communities” as part of a larger campus diversity and inclusion initiative. Officers in the unit will be required to attend diversity training sessions in order to learn how to interact with people of all types of backgrounds. The MSU Police Department is not a stranger to diversity, though, since all officers are already expected to complete an inclusion and anti-bias training. Sergeant Florene McGlothian-Taylor will be leading the unit. the purpose of which, she said, is to eliminate all biased police reports against any type of person. “It’s not just race,” McGlothian-Taylor said. “It’s height, it’s weight, it’s gender, you know, it’s sex. It’s everything.” MSU students are reportedly excitedwiththe prospect of having a safe campus. “Any, like, inclusion with them – with our diverse population – is a good effort by the police,” student Brian Pieciak said. “I mean I think it’s a really good opportunity for people to get, like, real justice,” another student, Autumn Carson, said. President Lou Anna Simon said the new unit is a testament to the university’s “commitment to diversity and better understanding the needs of [its] students, faculty and staff.” Campus Reform reached out to MSU Police Department but did not receive a response in time for publication.

  • Black feminists at UMD shame classmates for violating their safe space

    The University of Maryland hosted a “safe space” event for black women Monday night featuring discussions on topics such as how to “create a space of healing and rejuvenation" and "I feel like I have been treated differently because of the shade of my skin." The event, called “You Alright Sis?’ Black Woman Revitalization in the Face of Patriarchy,” was sponsored by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion as part of its “Face(t)s of Black” celebration in honor of Black History Month. Near the beginning of the conversation, two females by the names of Eliza and Carrie shared with the group that they often feel uncomfortable around other black women because of assumptions that life is easier for immigrant blacks than native-born blacks, saying they “have experienced, and still experience, having cultures with African American women who say to us as African or Caribbean women that ‘you guys think you’re better than us’.” The conversation then progressed from classification to racism as they discussed how having a different skin tone can change perception. “People gender a black woman’s race,” Executive Administrative Assistant Timea Webster asserted, explaining, “if you are darker skinned you are more masculine; if you are more lighter skinned you are feminine.” Webster attempted to illustrate the point by referring to a controversial tweet showing Serena Williams next to race horse American Pharaoh, complaining, “she is literally being compared to an animal.” The tweet was intended merely to call attention to the fact that the horse beat Williams in a Sports Illustrated poll to determine sportsperson of the year, but inspired an outpouring of mean-spirited comments about Williams’ looks on social media. Webster then contrasted Williams with Ayesha Curry, wife of NBA star Stephen Curry (who happens to be light skinned), complaining about a tweet in which Curry stated that she “like[s] to keep the good stuff covered up for the one who matters.” A woman by the name of Tatiyana took offense to the basketball wife’s comment, retorting, “What’s classy? What does that look like? That’s clearly race, that’s clearly class.” Later, one student told the assembly that her feelings get hurt while watching TV because “the love interest always has to be lighter than the man, and if she is darker, she has to have a weave; there has to be a European characteristic to make her okay.” Throughout the event, men and women, regardless of their race or sexual orientation, were periodically pressured to leave if they do not identify as a black woman, though Webster conceded that she lacked the authority to compel their eviction, lamenting that “we are the University of Maryland, which is a state university, tax funded, and I cannot put anyone out of the room.” “If we say that that’s something that we need, to be free, is that something that the black men in this room can respect?” an audience member chimed in. The question was not rhetorical, however, as the audience waited expectantly for the black males in attendance to answer individually. “As a facilitator, I have heard Angel say that if enough black women in this space do not feel comfortable with black men in this space, the black women in this space would like the black men—on their own terms—to leave,” Webster interpreted, failing to note the ironic juxtaposition between that request and the assurance given by a facilitator at the beginning of the event that “we will be mindful of and openly embrace the diversity in this room.” Despite the absence of coercion, two students, an African American male and an Asian American female, ultimately followed Webster’s suggestion in order to escape the ostracism and accusatory stares of other students. The female student felt so guilty for infringing upon a black women’s safe space that she actually cried as she removed herself out of the facilities.
