Liberal students responded with a press conference in which they claimed the campus was hostile and racist. Maybe electing more Democrats to office in Rhode Island would solve the problem. Oh, wait…

Providence College students claim ‘hostile’ racial climate on campus

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — A group of Providence College students will hold a press conference Wednesday to protest what they say is a hostile climate for minority students and faculty.

The forum will be at 3 p.m. outside the main gates on River Avenue.

Students say there have been multiple incidents of racial profiling on campus by campus security. One professor says she received a series of threatening emails after she announced a new social justice award.

Students say the university has done little to address these concerns.

The Coalition Against Racism is asking the administration to do four things: train campus security in racial awareness, send an email to the entire campus condemning the harassment of the faculty member, create a for-credit class on race relations and implement a policy prohibiting racial profiling by campus security.
