Happy Anti-Hate Day!
Written by Bwog Staff
What are those big black panels out on Low Plaza? In keeping with the new trend of self-expression, they’re collages created at the events at Teachers College in the last couple of days focused on homophobia, racism, anti-semitism, and Islamophobia. In case you still feel left out, there’s a whole wall for you just to write on as well. Although today’s events come in conjunction with the City’s Day Out Against Hate, Calvin Sun wanted Bwog to know that it’s a completely student-driven effort, leading us all around the imposing structure, for all the world like a proud father showing off his large, multi-dimensional child.
Sun also took issue with the Spec‘s editorial “Hating on Hate,” which he had heard from “multiple sources” had been composed while editorial board members were drunkenly celebrating the turning over of the board’s membership. Spec soon-to-be-lame-duck Editor-in-Chief John Davisson denied the allegation, saying that one board member had written the editorial before a small holiday party celebrating the deadline for turkey shoot proposals (NOT the turnover of the board, which happens next week) that involved a small amount of eggnog, brandy, and beer. The rest of the board weighed in before the party, “stone cold sober.”
Bwog, for the record, thinks drunken editorializing at Spectator would be a great addition.
