After Proposition 2, a 'New Edge' to Racial Harassment

+ More

Racial slurs and hate speech aren't new at the University of Michigan. But since the state voted yes on Proposition 2, an affirmative action ban, they've gotten a "new edge," the university's dean of students told the Michigan Daily. Some of the messages are tied directly to Proposition 2; one student received a Facebook message calling him a "n-----" after he posted his opposition to the amendment on his profile. That student has now asked his peers to save similar examples as evidence that "equality and fairness does" not exist in this state."
