Recent Campus Hate Incident Displays EMU’s Lack of Protective Policy

4/22/2019, 5:49pm

After February's hate incident, EMU students wonder what protective measures are in place for marginalized groups on campus.

 Like many students, Chris Casillas didn't feel the need to read the EMU student code of conduct or the Housing Department's guide to campus living. However, after February's racial incident in Best Hall, he wishes he had.  "I have to go to a hearing with Conduct and see that girl again,” Casillas said. “I have to defend myself when I shouldn't even have to." "That girl" is his former suitemates’ girlfriend, who hung up a naked black baby doll for Casillas to find early February 11. With the Washtenaw County Prosecutor refusing to charge her and the suitemates with ethnic intimidation, justice for Casillas is left to Eastern's Conduct office -- and their vague policies regarding hate incidents on campus.

While such a diverse Democratic primary field is refreshing, it’s important to focus on policy rather than identity politics.

The Democratic Party is set to have a historic primary season, as 18 major candidates have already announced their run for the White House. The party has also amassed the most diverse primary field in history, with more women and minority candidates than ever before. But in a time when urgent problems plague the nation, identity politics is not enough.
