There's been a lot of questionable things going on campus including the student president having the N word yelled at him and someone drawing swastikas all of the dormitories and the officials have barely done anything in response to it.

Trying to get someone fired with a hunger strike is a pretty asshole thing to do

Having a hunger strike is usually pretty dumb anyway,

As soon as the guy collapses as a result of starvation, he'll be loaded into an Ambulance and have a tube inserted in him so they can feed him.

Isn't science amazing?

Our media is a pretty good judge of beauty though.

Is this on the front of everybody's minds or is it more like a thing that's just kinda happening and is worth mentioning only in passing conversation?

I was thinking about this idea at work yesterday. Sure, folks can play the Gandhi card to legitimize issues that are very different from British colonialism, but it's a very selfish act in the end. The entire essence of a hunger strike is to tell people this, "If you don't do things my way, I'm going to kill myself. You wouldn't want me dead and to have that on your conscience, would you?" It's hard, for me, to view anyone with a slither of respect after they demonstrate such notions. You can't just go through life with that attitude (for very long at least).

You can symbolically align yourself with famous world figures who have played the same game so that your narcissism is fully sated, but it doesn't make you a historical figure at the end of the day. You're just another blip on the newsreel, another tweet, another "like". How fuckin' sad.

So Butler was upset with Wolfe's inaction after 3 racist incidents that mostly consisted of using the word niggr, so he and his coalition confront him about it. Wolfe has no solutions to stop individual racism and now this hunger strike has cost Wolfe his job.

i admire the attempt to do something about the racism on a campus that is 77% white and 7% black. But im not exactly sure what they wanted Wolfe to do? Hire more racism police to catch every single person who utters a slur? The shittiness of white racist students effectively cost Wolfe his job, which i dont know if i can agree with. Granted, Wolfe's held high up admin positions at 4 different colleges since 2012 so there may well be something behind the scenes this article isn't revealing, but on the surface, i think this whole thing is a little extreme. Also, Zaphikh is right about hunger strikes. You want something done about an HR issue? Okay, organize yourselves (which they did), come up with a plan (don't think they did), present it to your administration (pretty sure they didn't) and go from there. Not plop down and starve yourself until a man you don't like is fired or resigns.

It's a ridiculous form of blackmail. Effective though. No-one would have ignored this kid's demands. If he did die, the college president would have been subject to accusations of being a racist, letting a poor black kid die. It's low level terrorism, really.
