Colorado State president tells racists to pick another school in an epic apology for racist incident on admissions tour

Published

The president of Colorado State University has just released an epic apology for the racist incident that happened during an admissions tour at the school this week.

Two Native American teens, 19-year-old Thomas Kanewakeron Gray and 17-year-old Lloyd Skanahwati Gray, had scraped up money and traveled to tour their “dream school.” The mother of another student touring the school called the police on them because she was “nervous” that they were being quiet. The two teens were stopped and had their pockets searched by cops. They lost the tour and felt dejected, so they left.

“They scraped together their dollars, made arrangements themselves to register for the campus tour, and took the only car we have and drove up there,” their mom said. “And how it ended was even worse.”

Now, university president Dr. Tony Frank is speaking up and forcefully apologizing.

“Two young men, through no fault of their own, wound up frightened and humiliated because another campus visitor was concerned about their clothes and overall demeanor, which appears to have simply been shyness,” he wrote. “If you’re uncomfortable with a diverse and inclusive academic environment, then you probably have a better fit elsewhere.”

“Hate is not made uncomfortable. Hate does not shrink from fear. What affects hate is our willingness to shine a bright and unwavering light on it and to face it and confront it,” he said. “There is no place for hate at Colorado State University, and we will not be silent when we see it.”

On Tuesday, former Trump administration official Anthony Scaramucci criticized President Trump for telling four freshman congresswomen to go back to their own countries. All four are American citizens.

Scaramucci accused the president of playing to his base, in a way that has dangerous manifestations: for the president and the country.

“He’s blowing very hard on a dog-whistle that every ethnic group that’s landed in the United States has had to hear,” Scaramucci told the BBC.

“I don’t think the president is a racist, but here’s the thing: if you continue to say and act in that manner, then we all have to look at him and say, ‘OK, well, maybe you weren’t a racist, but now you’re turning into one.'”

Rashiba Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) by arguing that "lefties on Twitter every day" tell him to "go back" to Canada, where he was born in 1970.
