Dal and racism

The Coast - - THIS WEEK -

Let me see if I un­der­stand what’s go­ing on in Mag­gie Rahr’s story (“Racism re­ver­sal at Dal­housie Uni­ver­sity,” The City sec­tion, Oc­to­ber 19). It’s OK for Ma­suma Khan to be racist against white peo­ple, but not OK for peo­ple to be racist against her?! Racism is racism re­gard­less of who its di­rected at. —posted at

It’s sad that Dal­housie al­lowed some­one like this in the po­si­tion. —posted by Greg Miller I won­der how Dal Stu­dent Union’s lead­ers would work in the real world? They would never be voted into any real pub­lic of­fice with views like this. It’s sad that some are de­fend­ing racist rants like Ma­suma Khan’s and blam­ing white peo­ple. —posted by Charles Mar­tel

Khan is a stronger per­son than any of these white egos and will con­tinue to rise be­cause of it. —posted by Mr Lo­vah Lo­vah

This is ex­actly what white fragility looks like, just a bunch of white peo­ple get­ting pissed off for be­ing called out. There needs to be more peo­ple like Ma­suma Khan. —posted by
