McGill is an English-language university. The last major one left in Quebec.

McGill is a *great* school, one of the best in the country. Canada's Princeton, basically. As wiki says "Notable alumni include nine Nobel Laureates, 135 Rhodes Scholars, three astronauts, two Canadian prime ministers, twelve justices of the Canadian Supreme Court, four foreign leaders, twenty-eight foreign ambassadors, nine Academy Award winners, three Pulitzer Prize winners, and twenty-eight Olympic medalists. McGill is one of two member-universities of the Association of American Universities situated outside the United States.

The fact that it is such a respected school acting so stupidly makes this much worse.

I really don't need any more reasons to generally dislike Canadians, especially French Canadians.

This is fucking stupid.

-----------------

Jay Leno ran a bit on the Tonight Show which doctored footage of President Obama walking away from him podium so that he would be kicking in a door in frustration as he exited. Funny haha. A 3-second animated gif of the "incident" has been spread around in emails to signify stress, frustration, etc.

Unless you go to McGill University in Montreal, Quebec. There, it means you're racist.

Brian Farnan, Vice President for Internal Affairs at the McGill Students’ Society sent an email to the student body as mid-term exams approached, and jokingly said he understands the frustration, including the animated gif of the President's door-kicking.

The Student Society Equity Committee was appalled. They received a complaint and (after a secret deliberation) deemed the animated image a clear violation of their "oppressive conduct" policies.

"Oppression, as outlined in SSMU’s Equity Policy, means the exercise of power by a group of people over another group of people with specific consideration of cultural, historical and living legacies. The image in question was an extension of the cultural, historical and living legacy surrounding people of color—particularly young men—being portrayed as violent in contemporary culture and media. By using this particular image of President Obama, [the email sender] perpetuated this living legacy and subsequently allowed a medium of SSMU’s communication to become the site of a microaggression.

How many times can a House Rep embarrass themselves inside of 30 minutes?

"Rep. Alvin Holmes, D-Montgomery (AL), just said on House floor that he doesn't like Clarence Thomas because "he's married to a white woman.""

While one tweet from one alleged witness would be dubious, two different reporters present in the House reported pretty much the same thing simultaneously.

When asked for clarification, Rep. Holmes said he "supports interracial marriage" and that the statement about Justice Thomas was "misinterpreted". What he MEANT was "some people might say I didn't like him because he was married to a white woman."

He also added, since the reporters apparently missed it the first time, "I said I don't like him at all because he is an Uncle Tom."

Holmes made the comment during debate about land surveying bi, claiming Justice Thomas was a failed surveyor before law school. After adjournment, Holmes acknowledged that he made that up, to make sure the comments were considered on-topic.

Thanks for clearing that up, Rep. Holmes.

It was a play on words, Robert, re: the Bill Clinton comment.

<<< Shrugs shoulders. No one hurt, killed or shot at. Not a story of importance beyond a chuckle. He should have painted the AK with gold paint and then dumped gold sequin's, so to match the name of the store... And yes, I agree, the banana clip would have gone with the outfit.

WTF?

Bill Clinton gets Red Dress award from Woman's Day. Shouldn't that have been a Blue Dress award given by Liar's Day?
