Students and staff may be surprised today to see sayings like "Jesus freak," "She deserved it," "That's so gay," and "Go back to Africa" on a wall in front of Old Main.

The Writing on the Wall Project uses these words and many more this week to teach students about barriers that divide people and serve as a physical reminder of how hurtful words can be.

The wall, sponsored by the Residence Hall Association, is six feet tall and 37 feet long. The wall, which was built yesterday, will stand between Old Main and the student union until 10 a.m. Wednesday.

Students, faculty and staff are then encouraged to help tear it down as a symbol of the collaboration needed to erase divisions between people.

They have really accelerated their diversity mindwashing this year. I'll no doubt have a new article from this newpaper next week touting diversity. Stay tuned!

Oh, and I just love this quote.

"The lesson is that there are words and thoughts that are hurtful," Ramos said.
Uh oh, here comes the diversity/thought police! Scatter!

The ceremony to tear down the wall Wednesday will be led by Edith Auslander, vice president and senior associate to the president, and will include an address from UA President Pete Likins, Ramos said.

Edith Auslander? :rofl:
Interesting that her name means "foreigner" in German. Probably a jew...
