Penn State Collegian: Racial slurs in Snapchat videos bring free speech, hate speech into the spotlight at Penn State

Penn State Collegian: Racial slurs in Snapchat videos bring free speech, hate speech into the spotlight at Penn State. “Over the weekend, two white female college students recorded themselves vocalizing racial slurs from a rap song and posted the videos to social media. By Monday night, one of those students had been removed from her sorority at William Paterson University, and the other brought Penn State under fire.” Unfortunately this kind of thing happens a lot and if I included every instance in RB I would have no room for anything else. I am including this particular example because the article is extensive and shows the evolution of both community pushback and university response.
