Politically correct tyranny is afoot at the University of Houston.

I was recently made aware of a student at the university who was suspended for 50 days by the student government association and ordered to attend diversity training over a reference she made about the Black Lives Matter crowd.

?#ForgetBlackLivesMatter; more like AllLivesMatter,? wrote Rohini Sethi, the vice president of the school?s student government association.

Ms. Sethi wrote those words last month just a few hours after five Dallas police officers were assassinated.

Her belief that every life matters set off a firestorm of controversy among students ? including the Black Student Union.

They were among several predominantly African-American groups who demanded that Ms. Sethi be punished for exercising her First Amendment rights.

?For her to say on her social media ?forget black lives matter,? it?s almost as if to say if all of us were to die tomorrow, she wouldn?t care,? BSU president Kadidja Kone told the Washington Post.

?Just for her to say, ?forget Black Lives Matter,? is a punch in the stomach, student Nala Hughes told ABC 13 News in Houston.

Rohini Sethi

Apparently women from the Indian subcontinent don't matter at UH.

More idiotic BLM appeasement.

Your headline isn't true. Why do you consistently make stuff up? She wasn't sanctioned for saying "All Lives Matter."
It was because she said "ForgetBlackLivesMatter."
Anything she said after that was irrelevant.
Her comments were divisive and as a student representative, inappropriate.

She is free to say whatever she wants, just as you.

You aren't free to not receive consequences for your actions.

LMFAO

Tell that to Renu Khator. Google her too, since clearly you're clueless.

Apparently they don't teach critical thinking at U of H. It was a dismissive statement replace by a more encompassing statement that obviously includes the dismissive statement. What part of that is so difficult to understand?

Emppie you are worse than foxnews since you even have a need to spin their far right agenda further. Pretty pathetic

It's a Uuuuuge FN spin. Get a real life, try an unbiased one for a change. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 4 years ago -

Did you have something of substance to say or just more ad hominem. 

Prolix Raconteur --- 4 years ago -

Oh look, jams on the scene with more vapid vitriol, petty snark and useless deflection. 

Karras --- 4 years ago -

Reminds of what Bret Easton Ellis says about the Social Justice Warriors:

"'Oh, little snowflakes, when did you all become grandmothers and society matrons, clutching your pearls in horror at someone who has an opinion about something, a way of expressing themselves that's not the mirror image of yours?'

And

"authoritarian language police", with "your strict set of little rules and manufactured outrage, demanding apologies from every sandwich or salad you didn't like". 

Not KU --- 4 years ago -

"authoritarian language police",
Speaking of "Authoritarian".

Does anyone here view Trump as an authoritarian, Or is it just me? He stated

"our government is broken and I'm the only one that can fix it"

Trump said that, so I'm sure he's crazy. But is he an authoritarian? 

Not KU --- 4 years ago -

petty snark and useless deflection.

Yeah, KU republicans have no use for fact. Except to deny it, marginalize it, avoid it until it fits their narrative.

Which has what to do with this thread?

"It was because she said "ForgetBlackLivesMatter."

And there lies the issue, they don't care about the context of what she wrote, only took a portion of it and deemed it wrong. You have no issue with this?

What facts Mark? 

Not KU --- 4 years ago -

Is Trump an authoritarian? anyone.

Exactly 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 4 years ago -

it sounds to me like PC run amuck- 

ugly yapper dog --- 4 years ago -

Remember the days when if you had the urge to disparage a group of people, you were only able to broadcast it to a handful of peeps around you? But now days there's twitter & all this other social media garbage allowing people to broadcast to the world every time they have a brain fart. Then such idiots act suprised that people can fight back in large groups.

It's black lives matter too. Not all lives matter, because it's already assumed that all lives matter. Are there really people out there that dont get this? Because in such context the "all lives matter" bit doesnt make any sense... Assuming people are smart enogh to get that, the only reason someone would say forget blm "all lives matter" is to start a fight; and a fight she received.

Pure BS. The word "all" is the operative and more accurate word. 

Texan65 --- 4 years ago -

All lives matter is divisive?

Unbelievable

"our government is broken and I'm the only one that can fix it"


Between Trump and HRC....he certainly is the only one who can fix it
