College Classes Canceled to Protest Hate Crime

Sadly, this took place at my alma mater, Claremont McKenna College. It's not the first time we've had incidents either. Despite, however, the comments of some students in this article, the predominant culture on the campuses is not one of hate.

We just have some damn unfortunate children who were never held responsible for a thing they've ever done. And the main problem is - we don't seem to kick out vandals when we catch them. As I told the Board of Trustees several years ago - if the school lets these people stay around, then whoever's next will push the envelope a little farther. And now look what's happened. I don't know if the crimes were really motivated by a sincere racially-based hatred of the Professor. More likely, it was some punk guys who wanted to do things the worst possible way because it would get the biggest rise out of people. They aimed at the heart - but they didn't really care whose heart they got.
