This may just be an opinion that can not be fully proven with the available data but I find it insulting (and awfully suspicious) as a Black student on this campus that the University police are quick to send out safety alerts about minor “criminal” incidents involving Black men–last week I think it was a Black touching peoples’ feet–but on March 7th, when the police seized weapons from a students’ vehicle that was parked on campus they¬† ” determined there was no cause for a Wolf Alert”.¬† I’m going to go ahead and guess that the armed student in question was White.

I am curious to know how much potentially violent criminal behavior perpetrated by non-brown skinned peoples is swept under the rug while Black peoples behavior is constantly being put on blast.
