From The College Fix:

A group of progressive students at Marquette University are upset that conservative firebrand Ben Shapiro is scheduled to speak on campus later this week, citing “Black History Month” as one reason why his presence is an insult and threat.

In a letter, the students have called on President Michael Lovell to denounce Shapiro’s visit, saying he believes America is post-racial yet his talk is taking place during Black History Month, interrupting the observance.

The letter, obtained by Young America’s Foundation, which is hosting the speech, calls on Lovell to “stand up for those who are marginalized.”
