Student speech advocates are asking Clemson University to enforce state law and its own policies with respect to the students who occupied an administration building last week.

In response to the racially-motivated hanging of bananas from a banner on campus commemorating African-American history, a student group called See The Stripes organized a“#StudentBlackOut” rally Wednesday to reiterate its previous demands for diversity initiatives, implicitly blaming the incident on the university’s failure to implement measures such as increased funding for minority student groups or hiring more faculty of color.
