From Joe Asch comes word that the Dartmouth campus police are, in the words of the College’s Media Relations department, “on the hunt for a student who allegedly verbally harassed two students.” The object of this manhunt stands accused of speaking faux-Chinese to two Chinese students.
If captured, what will happen to the lout? According to the Media Relations Department, he could face expulsion. Other penalties could “include a mandatory sensitivity course or a paying a fine.” Such is life at a modern liberal arts college.
Meanwhile, Asch notes that members of an African-American fraternity who physically beat pledges are serving three terms (one-year) of social probation. Why wouldn’t social probation be sufficient punishment for the gibberish speaker?
