According to the Miami Herald, Sybrina Fulton—the mother of Trayvon Martin—announced her campaign to run for a seat on the Miami-Dade county commission.

In a statement, Fulton said “Since 2012, I have advocated tirelessly to empower our communities and make them safer. But the work is not done. I am proud to announce that I will run to represent District 1 on the county commission.”

She said, “Our county must continue moving forward so our families are safe from violence, can afford to live in Miami-Dade and have access to good paying jobs. I am ready to take on these issues and many others in county government.”

The altercation with Zimmerman was provoked after Zimmerman followed Martin on suspicions that Martin was casing house in the neighborhood that he was in. Instead of peacefully asking Zimmerman why he was following him, Martin opted to assault Zimmerman to the point where he had no choice but to use lethal force to neutralize Martin’s attack.

This incident sparked a racially charged debate about violence against unarmed African Americans and the need to reform certain gun laws such as Stand Your Ground.

Fulton expressed her sentiments following this incident:

“I did not drop to my knees for too long because I refused to be depressed. And so I stood up, and when my son got shot down, I stood up, and I’m still standing.”

In the past, Fulton has advocated for certain gun control measures such as universal background checks and closing the so-called “gun show” loophole.

Gun control will likely be the main focus of her campaign.

MSU Provost Goes Politically Correct by Eliminating the Words “Foreign” and “Alien”

Published

In a recent announcement, Michigan State University Provost Teresa Woodruff declared that the university will stop using the terms “foreign” and “alien” to foster a more “inclusive” environment.

The Morning Watch reported that Woodruff said before the Associated Students of MSU (ASMSU) on October 22, that “we will eliminate from our collective lexicon the words ‘alien’ and ‘foreign.’ Instead, we’ve adopted non-pejorative terms that describe geography.”

The new language directed towards international students would now be “non-domestic” or “international,” the provost detailed. Woodruff added that the change will help “create a culture of not us vs. them, but of each other.”

Woodruff revealed that change was made by the MSU Office of the Provost and went through the Dean’s Council, and the federal government was made aware of these changes.

The ASMSU’s International Students Association representative Nikunj Agarwal declared that the language change is an “essential step” and that change in language will help in “making us feel really inclusive in the community.” MSU has been active over the past year in trying to become more politically correct and “inclusive.”

Back in October 2019, MSU made additional changes to appeal to resident aliens by launching a website for “undocumented students, refugees, and recipients of…DACA.” The website listed a number of goals which consisted of “reducing apprehension, addressing confusion, and giving better access to MSU resources.”

MSU’s President Samuel Stanley was especially shook after Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents gave a presentation before an MSU class. Stanley likened the the CBP agents’ visit to campus as acts of vandalism and part of the “concern and anger” at the university.

Public universities are making it clear that they don’t care about free speech and are willing to manipulate language for the sake of promoting political correctness. If conservatives aren’t majoring in high demand fields such as STEM, they should give universities the cold shoulder. There’s no need to subsidize institutions that hate you.
