Leave comments to let me know what you think, and SIGN THE PETITION (copies will automatically go to President DeGioia asking him to take action on the issues raised by students at the various meetings and in the open letter).

As a Georgetown alum, I’m proud of the way the overwhelming majority of students have responded to these attacks. Good job!

They exist in a culture that allows them to act (or even think) the way that they do.
True, perhaps these attackers were not Georgetown students (though they might well have been), but that by no means implies that incidents of bigotry don’t occur on this campus.
Perhaps you might want to consider why YOU are so opposed to the idea of taking courses that relate to diversity, or engaging in discourse on diversity-related issues in general.

I’d like to mention that hate crimes occur because of a culture that fosters them. That why we have the LGBT center and we are working towards a more inclusive campus. Many other bias incidents occur each year, but student are afraid of reporting them. But if had a nickle for how many times I have been called f@ggot….

There is a genuine fear that LGBTA students often face walking alone on this campus at night. And it’s really sad.
