Clemson University BANS Harambe memes for “promoting racism and rape culture”

Rebel Staff
 

The administration at Clemson University is banning references to Harambe, the gorilla who was shot dead at the Cincinnati Zoo back in May.

Since his death, Harambe has become an unstoppable internet meme spawning numerous images, jokes and videos in his honour. Why? Because that's how the internet works.

Now, Clemson University is saying he promotes racism and rape culture.

According to Campus Reform, an email was sent to Resident Advisors instructing them to demand that freshman remove all Harambe references from dorm hallways and windows.

The statement said that, “If residents are asking why they have to take them down you can share that there was a report from an individual about a meme being offensive and bias [sic] in nature and as a result all Harambe references are no longer allowed within our community.”

Graduate Community Director Brooks Artis told one student that there is one exception. Harambe-related decorations are will allowed inside dorm rooms “where people would have to be invited into the space to see said decoration.”

Are far as the incident that started all this, no info has been shared. Artis told a student, “although I (nor your RA) can share the incident that was reported [that] resulted resulted in this change, we have to remember that we all come different backgrounds and have different identities that shape how we are affected by different references.”

Students can still say the word 'Harambe', but according to Artis, “While we are not banning the word, I want to encourage you to think about what you are saying and how someone who may be a different gender, race, culture, or sexuality than you may take the comment.”

The mindlessness of universities never cease. The space space crybaby cuckoldry continues to mold our future into a castrated fountain of tears.

Things like this are warning signals that we have a generation so poisoned with insane dogmas that logic and truth are unknown to them.

Nothing short of a cataclysm can help now.

I would understand the course disciplinary if the Harambe reference was actually be used against people in a racist way, but this makes no sense.

The philosophy of the regressive left is so confusing. Suppose there is a sincere believer about animal abuse belonging to PETA, and decided that Harambe was his totem to show the abuse. Further, this sincere animal rights person becomes a student of Clemson University, assuming it is a true university. The left wing animal rights student is threatened with expulsion by a left wing university bureaucracy that has deemed having Harambe as a totem is racist for the reason Dr. Genius states below.

Confusing, confusing, confusing. Does the regressive left have any true to life guiding principle beyond one left wing hobby horse being stupider than another left wing hobby horse?

Racism? So now we can’t think of ourselves superior to the great apes?

«“promoting racism and rape culture”»

Hmmm, so the Clemson leadership is asserting that African Americans resemble gorillas and that African Americans have a rape culture — and they’re calling other people “racists”. Perhaps they should look in the mirror.

Does anyone proof-read these articles before you put them online? I really have to wonder looking at all the mistakes in just this one paragraph alone….
