“There is no need to taint the image of a successful university by using a handful of incidents of racism to support claims about the campus as a whole.”I believe the Daily 49er fails to realize that this quote is sending a very strong message: “The reputation of the oppressor takes precedence over the lived experiences of the oppressed.” This is a woefully, poorly conceived and downright reprehensible position to be taken by the newspaper of a University. This article as a whole sends a powerful message to the students at CSULB and the students across the U.S. who are confronted with racist occurrences, both overt and covert, that marginalize, silence, and flat out deny their experiences. The message is “Don’t come forward.” …
this piece by gwynn alexander is a good read
"no racist comments! unless it’s by our opinions editor in which case we’ll publicly promote it on our social media platforms and ignore angry emails!"
if you’ve been following me for a while you probably know that i have very strong opinions about college journalism (shout out to the ucsd koala! aka the worst piece of student “journalism” to grace this earth; please read the ucsd guardian instead)
if you think casual racism is a cool way to gain points with your readers you’ve probably got some really weird ideas about journalism.
so look at this disgusting piece of “journalism” i stumbled upon today! ethnocentrism! language imperialism! wide assumptions about an entire culture! it’s got everything shitty you could possibly think of and more!
some choice bits include:
- "Also, people in China love to yell, and have no concept of using “inside voices.”"
- ”Overall, people in China neglect to follow many of the social standards that we value in the West.”
- "…if I had been one of those insufferable D-bags from the Jersey Shore, I would’ve left behind dozens of people with black eyes"
- "Good luck trying to find anyone who is able to speak English."
wow you mean to tell me that people didn’t speak english in CHINA??? and you were surprised by this??
keep in mind that this is written by the opinions editor - this person is in charge of an entire section at this newspaper which is an atrocity.
if you have free time, you can read the article here and write an email to the editor to voice your concerns! don’t forget to forward it to their faculty advisor as well because this should have some sort of a consequence for mr. hunter paul
at the very least, there should be a formal apology made - not just from the writer but also from the editorial staff for letting this racist article be published online.
Editor in Chief – email@example.com

afternoon reblog for those of you who missed it!
so the 49er’s comment posting policy on its website specifically prohibits content that is “racially or ethnically offensive”
kind of ironic that they allowed this article to be published online isn’t it?
oh and a bonus on the writer:
btw their twitter is @daily49er if you want to tweet them instead of emailing them!
