A bias incident is an offense committed while thinking bad thoughts about an oppressed member of a protected group
Few, if any, college students these days really are racist, sexist or homophobic. Yet, colleges and universities across the country are obsessed with political correctness, and bias incidents. For instance, a large yellow banner hanging above the East Side Community Center at the University of Michigan, informs them of how many days it has been since somebody on campus last reported a bias incident. Once, that banner would have welcomed new students to campus.
It may seem tasteless to point and laugh at this silly obsession. Colleges are, after all, run by leftists. They can’t help it. But college administrators, eager to enforce conformity with their own ideals, have charged innocent students with bias incidents for negligible reasons. In 2008 a student employee at the University-Purdue University Indianapolis library was placed on bias incident charges for reading Notre Dame vs. the Klan: How the Fighting Irish Defeated the Ku Klux Klan during his work break.
