Re: “Middlebury Students Shut Down Lecture by Charles Murray

To put it simply, the motivation behind the protest was not to oppose to his freedom of speech. It was in opposition to Middlebury, an academically rigorous school that encourages students to educate themselves with facts - not misinterpreted data and racist/sexist/ableist/homophobic views, approving a student organization to host a lecture by a man who has been labeled as a white supremacist. Allowing such a person on campus is blatantly disrespectful to all that Middlebury states it supports - inclusion and equality of all students despite differences in socioeconomic, gender, racial backgrounds, etc. Giving Charles Murray a platform to try and justify his hate speech is disgraceful and anti-intellectual, especially when considering he has not been published in any peer reviewed journals and scholars have found his research in his books to be misleading at best.
