Campus Visit Notes for University of California-Berkeley
We visited on second day of second semester. In the quad there were about 50 student organizations setup with tables with flyers and students. There were about 4 Arab/Muslim groups with large banners calling Jews and Israel murderers. I'm for free-speech, especially at Cal where the FreeSpeechMovement started, but this goes too far. By contrast, if a student White group did the same about African Americans, there would have been an uproar.
