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

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.
