Boston College Faculty Demand Donald Trump Speak about Hate Crimes

From Campus Reform:

In a letter signed by nearly 50 faculty members, signatories accused President-elect Donald Trump of failing to condemn hate crimes against Muslims, non-whites, and the LGBT community “that his campaign emboldened.” They also assert that Trump failed to “unambiguously” disavow boasting about sexually assaulting women and appointed a chief strategist, Steve Bannon, who “traffics in racism, misogyny, anti-Semitism, and other toxic forms of bigotry” on his website.

“In the wake of the presidential election, we as faculty at Boston College declare our unequivocal opposition to racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, and all forms of identity-based hatred and discrimination on and off this campus,” the letter states.
