Message Subject UC Berkeley Student Government Bans Use of Term "Illegal Immigrant"
Poster Handle Anonymous Coward
Post Content
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.”

 Quoting: Frayed Knot

If they actually had anyone there who wasn't a screaming hypocrite that person would go to the meeting and use those words.

The "student government" would then have the choice of removing that person or not.

If that person was removed then they may then go to court because the "student government" would have censored their 1st Amendment right to free speech in a public meeting in a public building at a public university paid for by tax dollars. Which is a civil right violation.
