Student unrest at college campuses: speaking up vs. making policy

I think that I’ve figured out how I feel about these various issues (Missouri, Yale, etc.)

Students can (and should) speak up about the problems that they encounter (e. g. racism, intimidation, etc.)

However, they are NOT qualified to prescribe policy. Note: I am NOT saying that they shouldn’t voice their ideas. I am saying that those who know better (or should know better) shouldn’t let them dictate policy.

  1. Shouldn’t They have a reason to be so upset? The basis of their claim is that an unknown student was racial offended by an unknown driver of an unknown truck and witnessed by an unknown security guard. So because of this unknown discrimination that we all know is caused by white male privilege. But then they must be right because the liberal Dean resigned, because his white privilege obviously made him a racist.
