Doing Their Part: Liberal College Students Watering Down The Education System, As Usual [Video]
The Freedom of speech seems to be dead on college campuses. Students seem to think that people are not allowed to have differing opinions to such an extent, that when interviewed, multiple students felt if a professor were against BLM he should be sanctioned or find a new career. Campus Reform asked students about professors who are against BLM and what they think should happen to these teachers. The misguided students were quick to condemn professors and felt that the classroom should be a safe space.
“I wouldn’t feel comfortable with a professor teaching that isn’t for Black Lives Matter,” one student said."
“With everything being so intense and with everything that’s going on right now, I think it is a safe decision to kind of remove [professors who oppose BLM] just because, like, you have to be considerate of all the students who are, you know, attending your institution,” one student argued."
“The professor shouldn’t be voicing any opinion in the course that could disrupt or upset a student. And if they are voicing an opinion that is upsetting a student, then they shouldn’t be allowed to teach that course,” one student said.
“I think the professor should go through some kind of program where they learn about black history and after that, it can be determined if they can still teach,” another said."

These are the voices of the upcoming generation that will someday have to lead us. They don't seem to understand that in the real world not everyone is going to agree with you. What's worse is it appears that they are so stubborn that they are losing out on their education. A professor with a different perspective is a huge learning opportunity. College students are supposed to be expanding their knowledge. Instead of jumping to sanctioning and removing this professor perhaps, they could touch upon their ability to have a civil debate. We need people to talk to each other and work to understand each other better. Our country is divided because of people like these students who are ready to ruin a professor's life over a differing opinion.
