[quote:Frayed Knot:MV8yNDA2ODQ5XzQxMjU3NDE1XzkxQkYzNjk=] from the article: "The lone abstention came from student Sen. Solomon Nwoche. Nwoche said while he sympathized with the situation, he thinks the resolution does not accomplish anything substantial. He added he was disappointed in how a student who spoke against the resolution at an earlier meeting was treated by student senators, [b]who laughed or had their backs turned when the lone protestor addressed the dais[/b]." Cause THAT'S not dehumanizing or anything. Friggin' libtard hypocrites. [/quote]
The UC Berkeley student government has banned the term “illegal immigrant” from its discourse, deeming the phrase racist, offensive, unfair and derogatory.
In an unanimous vote, student senators passed a resolution that stated the word “illegal” is “racially charged,” “dehumanizes” people, and contributes to “punitive and discriminatory actions aimed primarily at immigrants and communities of color.”
