College Student Suspended for Six Months For Offering an Opinion on Social Media…

Every individual is different. We have different mannerisms, different dialects and different habits. We root for different teams, maintain different hobbies and, yes, we have different visions of beauty.

Some women enjoy the macho type. Some like a more cerebral and refined man. Some men like redheads, others like brunettes.

Maybe it’s too much information, but I’m partial to blondes. It doesn’t matter; we’re all entitled to our own vision of beauty.

Well, unless you’re in college- the left’s indoctrination centers…

A university student has been suspended for six months for claiming on social media that black women are “not hot.”

I’m sure many Beyoncé and Hallie Berry fans would be inclined to disagree, but hey, as the cavalier saying goes, “Whatever floats your boat…”

Colorado College student Thaddeus Pryor was engaged in a conversation on the social media platform Yik Yak where the topic centered on the preposterous #BlackLivesMatter “movement.” Someone soon posted #BlackWomenMatter and Pryor weighed-in, remarking, “They matter, they’re just not hot.”

The remark was crass and a bit mean, so Pryor says that he immediately felt “ashamed” and promptly deleted the remark.

Who amongst us has not said something that they immediately regretted?

The bad joke, however, did not go unnoticed or unpunished.

“Some people screenshotted the most racial things said [from Yik Yak that night], and they blew them up onto banners and hung them up in the student center in front of the dean’s office,” Pryor said.

He got called before the tribunal (called a “student life disciplinary panel”) where Pryor was accused of many violations as someone had claimed Pryor as the poster of nearly all the racial things said on the supposedly anonymous chat app.

Senior Associate Dean of Students Rochelle Mason, Dean of Students Mike Edmonds and Assistant Dean of Students Cesar Cervantes then Pryor suspended for 21 months which, uncoincidentally, is the exact amount of time needed for Pryor to finish his degree. He was also banned from stepping foot on campus and from taking any courses for credit at any other academic institutions because of his unacceptable remark.

According to an appeal waged by Pryor, the disciplinary panel was nothing more than a “show trial” where he was hauled before the authorities and declared guilty and had sentence imposed.

“During my hearing, rather than presenting me with my possible violations then investigating my actions and how they may have constituted those violations, I was simply treated as broadly guilty” for posting all comments that night and not just the one crass comment, Pryor wrote.

Adding to the outrageousness of the situation, according to Pryor, the Yik Yak conversation that night began with racial slurs used against whites with some participants stating that whites are nothing but “dirty hippies with small dicks” and who are “always fucking their cousins.”

But making a mean-spirited remark the subjective nature of beauty is, evidently, fully intolerable to the cowering liberals of modern academia…

Pryor’s comment was not nice and many, many people would disagree with it. But that’s the point of free speech; an open exchange of ideas and thoughts lends itself to brilliant collaboration and idiotic mutterings. One need not agree with Pryor’s assertion, but it’s remarkably intolerant and unacceptable that he should encounter any punitive ramifications from his comments.

A collegiate atmosphere that refuses to tolerate differing speech is no bastion of higher learning but is, instead, nothing more than a re-education center dedicated to indoctrination.
