Students, administration respond to divisive Halloween posting
by Emily Schienvar
One by one, Muslim students and their peers passed the microphone to discuss past experiences with racism and Islamophobia.
For many of them, these memories resurfaced when a Halloween photo of students costumed in military garb in what some argued was a depiction of Osama bin Laden, others as a stereotypical Muslim at gunpoint, surfaced on Facebook last Wednesday.
An open solidarity forum hosted by the Muslim Students Association on Thursday offered students the chance to share their experiences with racism and discuss ideas for future prevention of acts that could be considered inflammatory.
