Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike, Guess What’s Racist Now

Kaitlyn Schallhorn, of Campus Reform, reported yesterday that students at the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota cancelled an event to celebrate the end of the school year after complaints that bringing a camel on campus could offend those of Middle Eastern cultures—an empirical example of opposition to tyranny cowering in the corner.

Aaron Macke, group advisor for the Residence Hall Association, said the intention of the event was “to have a little fun, bring students together.”

A Facebook page was created and was soon bristling with indignant comments suggesting the event was insulting to Middle Eastern cultures, an example of animal cruelty and even environmentally unfriendly.   

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that last December the university brought a reindeer to campus for the same purpose. No protests ensued.

The North Pole was contacted for comment.  There was no response to our query prior to publishing this post.
