Michigan State Bans Whiteboards from Dorms

Jonny Goldstein

Michigan State University has decided to ban whiteboards from student dorms because they have become means of transferring offensive material. Kat Cooper, director of University Residential Services Communications stated that “In any given month, there are several incidents like this. There was no one incident that was the straw that broke the camel’s back. Sometimes these things are racial, sometimes they’re sexual in nature. There are all sorts of things that happen.”

Therefore, in effort to prevent offensive things being transferred into the minds of their youth, the university has banned whiteboards in the dormitories.

Aaron Stephens, who is a student at MSU, was on Tucker Carlson last night to express his approval of the universities decision. Stephens told Tucker that a viewpoint isn’t as valid if it is “attacking¬†people.” Tucker then responded by letting Stephens know that all speech should be protected, even it is not “popular, constructive, or polite.” As Tucker states, “You need to be allowed to say what you think.”

Michigan State and Stephens still stand by their comments and decision to ban whiteboards on campus.
