At a time when we are encouraged to accept diversity: to live and let live: the response from officials at the university of Albany in new York state to a student party and social media posts sounds eerily like a bid at thought control to me. Some students at the school hosted a “coronavirus themed party recently, detailing the event in now deleted social media posts that showed a bucket of iced Corona Beer next to a surgical mask with a caption that read “Corona virus isn’t going to stop anyone from partying. In response to a complaint from a student group, The Asian American Alliance, which didn’t find the party or the post amusing, University officials say the conduct of the students will be investigated and those involved may face discipline. While the party and the posts may have been in poor taste the last time I checked we were supposed to be able to express ourselves even if others don’t like what we say or write. Increasingly that seems not to be the case any more. That’s the way I see it.
