Clemson University Bans Harambe Memes For Promoting ‘Rape Culture,’ ‘Racism’…

THIS ACTION BY CLEMSON UNIVERSITY WAS BECAUSE OF A COMPLAINT BY “ONE” INDIVIDUAL…NOT in any way did a MAJORITY of the students complain! Why the hell can only ONE person change ANYTHING in our country? I thought we all lived in a “DEMOCRACY”….Papa Mike






Harambe was a rapist?

Via Campus Reform:

A Clemson administrator sent an email to Resident Advisors (RAs) Friday instructing them to demand that freshman remove all Harambe references from dorm hallways and windows.

The administrator claimed Harambe’s death has been used to “add to rape culture” and can be “form of racism.” An RA further added that any student who disobeys these instructions will be “in trouble.”

“We are no longer allowing any reference to Harambe (or any other spelling) to be displayed on doors, halls, billboards, or windows,” the instructions state. “Harambe should not be displayed in a public place or a place that is viewed by the public.”

One Clemson freshmen leaked a screenshot to Campus Reform of an RA stating, “you cannot have any Harambe related thing up publicly after September 30th,” and threatening that point, “the individual/individuals will get in some trouble!”

The statement was released after an undisclosed malicious Harambe meme was directed towards a student, though the incident is only referenced obliquely in the message.

“If residents are asking why they have to take them down you can share that there was a report from an individual about a meme being offensive and bias [sic] in nature and as a result all Harambe references are no longer allowed within our community,” the missive says, adding that further questions can be directed to residence hall administrators.

The only exception, Graduate Community Director Brooks Artis told one student, is that Harambe-related decorations will still be permitted inside of dorm rooms, “where people would have to be invited into the space to see said decoration.”[…]

However, Artis does claim that freshman will still be allowed to say the name “Harambe” without administrative punishment.

“While we are not banning the word, I want to encourage you to think about what you are saying and how someone who may be a different gender, race, culture, or sexuality than you may take the comment,” Artis writes.
