It’s amazing that anyone could defend such a thing. People expect better from Dartmouth.

Dartmouth Students Defend Tearing Down Police Display With 566-Word Letter

Black Lives Matter activists at Dartmouth College are circulating a lengthy letter justifying their decision to tear down a display honoring police officers. Ironically, the letter argues that activists would be “silenced” if they did not actively suppress the speech of others.

On Friday, May 13, Dartmouth’s College Republicans put up a display, which was approved beforehand by the school, that read “Blue Lives Matter” and honored police who were killed on duty. Within a few hours, Black Lives Matter activists responded by tearing it down and putting up their own posters denouncing the display for “co-opting” their movement. They then stood watch over the memorial, refusing to let the College Republicans reclaim their reserved space.

The College Republicans strongly denounced the stunt as an act of censorship, so in response, the Black Lives Matter activists started circulating a statement of their own. The letter defends Friday’s censorship as well as an incident in November in which they paraded through the library and harassed students there. The anonymous authors say they simply “reclaimed” the billboard from College Republicans, and they denounce bystanders at the school for allegedly perpetuating violence against black people by not joining them.

“Fuck your comfort, there is no such thing as neutral existence,” it says. “Sitting in the library with your headphones in, intensifies this violence against people of color, muting the voices of the movement, the cries of your peers, and the history of inequality.”
