‘We are doomed’; Emory University students traumatized by chalk Trump

Chalk one up for Donald Trump at Emory University in Atlanta.

Students protested after a series of “chalkings” on the campus that sported the message “Trump 2016” that left them traumatized and looking for their safe spaces.

“You are not listening! Come speak to us, we are in pain!” chanted the students, addressing University administration, while they waved signs that read  “Stop Trump” or “Stop Hate,” reported Sam Budnyk in”The Emory Wheel” on Tuesday.

“I’m supposed to feel comfortable and safe [here],” said one student. “But this man is being supported by students on our campus.”

University President James W. Wagner made an effort to listen to the students’ laments but shot down the request to send a University-wide email to “decry the support for this fascist, racist candidate,” reported the Wheel.

Apparently, oblivious to real terror attacks going on outside their safe spaces, students demanded their right to express themselves fear-free while ironically denying that right to others. One University junior said the “Accept the Inevitable: Trump 2016” chalking was “alarming.”

School officials seemed to succumb to the students, sending out emails Tuesday addressing the concerns. Wagner’s message noted that the chalkings represented “values regarding diversity and respect that clash with Emory’s own.”

Social media users gave a virtual head shaking.
