Oh look: blatant racism and intolerance. Must be Monday.]
This is especially disturbing because Oberlin has long prided itself on a progressive-left identity based on diversity and inclusiveness. One of my best friends is an alumnus.
People really p**s me off sometimes.

Classes Canceled: Monday, March 4, 2013
Early this morning, there was a report of a person wearing a hood and robe resembling a KKK outfit between South and the Edmonia Lewis Center and in the vicinity of African Heritage House. This report is being investigated by both Safety and Security and the Oberlin Police Department. This event, in addition to the series of other hate-related incidents on campus, has precipitated our decision to suspend formal classes and all non-essential activities for today, Monday, March 4, 2013, and gather for a series of discussions of the challenging issues that have faced our community in recent weeks.
We hope today will allow the entire community—students, faculty, and staff—to make a strong statement about the values that we cherish here at Oberlin: inclusion, respect for others, and a strong and abiding faith in the worth of every individual. Indeed, the strength of Oberlin comes from our belief that diversity and openness enriches us all, and enhances the educational mission at its core.
Most schools have snow days. We have racism days. I’m…disappointed beyond words.
