Racial abuse written on free speech wall at the University of Central Missouri | New
WARRENSBURG, MO (KCTV) – The University of Central Missouri said someone wrote a racial slur on a free speech wall today.
The university posted about it on Facebook, claiming it happened during a campus event run by students celebrating free speech.
They did not specify what racial insult was used, only it was written on a free speech wall that was made available to the UCM community.
“While steadfast in its support for free speech, UCM condemns racism,” the university said in the post. “The views of individuals should not be interpreted as reflecting the views or values of the university.”
“UCM prides itself on its commitment to diversity and inclusiveness and urges students to reflect on their own values when faced with stimulating or confrontational rhetoric,” the post concludes.
