Oberlin college dating scene updating the jar file
A black student accused an ice cream shop owner of racism after he told the student she was not allowed to sit at an outside table because she hadn’t purchased any items from his store.
In 2006, I went back to Oberlin to confront the campus with the hate crime hoax phenomenon.
So, as soon as I read the fresh reports this week about a purported racist in a “KKK” hood lurking on Oberlin’s campus and reports of bigoted graffiti/vandalism, the fake hate crime alarm bells went off. The “KKK” hood appears to have been a student in a blanket and it is not clear if the “hate speech” was of malicious intent or meant to be a purposely provocative exercise of free speech by sympathetic students: According to college newspaper The Oberlin Review, the vandalism began on 9 February, with the defacing of Black History Month and Year of the Queer posters.
This was followed three days later with a note found in the Multicultural Resource Center that read “Nigger Faggot Center”.
Back in the 1990s, race-obsessed nutballs at Oberlin College in Ohio cooked up a horrid hate crime hoax.
Asian-American students claimed that a phantom racist had spray-painted anti-Asian racial epithets on a campus landmark rock.
“My understanding is that the individuals are college students and they have been identified. The college is dealing with it internally, and we have been working in co-operation with the college.” He added: “Charges could be happening, depending on prosecutors’ review.
Our case file has been forwarded to prosecutors.” Two students are thought to be behind the vandalism, but it is unclear if they were motivated by racial hatred, or – as has been suggested – were attempting a commentary on free speech.

They shut the college down and are forcing everyone to go to a day of political re-education and communal shrieking because of Linus Van Pelt.
Rosin argues that hookup culture marks the empowerment of career-minded college women.But I'm still not comfortable with Rosin's assertion that "feminist progress...depends on the existence of hookup culture."The career-focused and hyper-confident types of women upon whom Rosin focuses her argument reappeared in Kate Taylor's July 2013 feature "She Can Play That Game Too." In Taylor's story, female students at Penn speak proudly about the "cost-benefit" analyses and "low-investment costs" of hooking up as compared to being in committed relationships.In theory, hookup culture empowers millennial women with the time and space to focus on our ambitious goals while still giving us the benefit of sexual experience, right? As Maddie, my 22-year-old friend from Harvard (who, FYI, graduated with highest honors and is now at Yale Law School), puts it: "The 'I don't have time for dating' argument is bullshit. I am sitting in my dorm, having just applied Sally Hansen leopard-print press-on nails and wearing a chiffon dress from Forever 21 that my sister told me "looks really expensive." I am waiting to hear from a nerdy but cute guy I'll call Nate*, whom I know from class. " that millennials are "a generation confused about how to land a boyfriend or girlfriend."Williams is not the only one thinking about millennials and our potentially hopeless futures for finding love. reporter Alex Williams, who argues in his article "The End of Courtship?
