AIDS Awareness Flyers Distributed At Boise State University Characterized As "Racist" Because They're Critical Of Blacks

A young lady briefly detained while distributing AIDS awareness flyers on the campus of Boise State University has learned one of the ten commandments of university life - thou shalt not criticize blacks. Media stories from KTVB Channel 7, the Idaho Statesman, and The Arbiter. Discussion posted on Stormfront and The Phora.

The occasion was World AIDS Day, and the unidentified lady decided to distribute AIDS awareness flyers by embedding them in copies of The Arbiter, the "independent" student newspaper. At the top, the flyers read "Don't Catch AIDS!". Towards the middle, the flyer warned against having sex with intravenous drug users and bisexuals. Getting a bit warmer. But then on the bottom - the money shot; "Blacks are walking STD factories" and "once u go black we don't want u back".

Ding Ding Ding! Racist Alert! Time for the witch hunt to begin! And sure enough, it was a black student who started the witch hunt.

Senior Jalara Walker, a black student from California, had enjoyed her time on campus up until this point, but is now apprehensive after finding several of the flyers in a class. Walker said she laughed at first, thinking it absurd, but then left class to report it to the dean's office. "It just makes me uncomfortably aware that I shouldn't be here. That's what I feel like. I don't want to go back to school," Walker said. She says the dean's office told her they knew of the fliers. Now, a week later she says BSU has taken little action. “I don't feel that it was made as big of a deal as it should've been because it is a big deal," said Walker.

The president of the Black Student Alliance says the flier is insulting to the entire campus, not just black students. Out of BSU's nearly 19,000 students, 361 are black. Of course, he doesn't explain why all students should be insulted, though.

According to BSU spokesman Frank Zang, university officials are aware that the fliers are being distributed on campus. Campus police and the Boise Police Department have open, ongoing investigations. "Boise State strives to provide a culture of civility and success where all feel safe and free from discrimination, harassment, threats and intimidation," Zang said. "The university has both an anti-harassment policy and a student code of conduct with potential corrective action, pending the investigation."

Dwight Murphy, the advertising manager for The Arbiter, actually caught the unidentified woman in the act of embedding flyers in the newspapers. He confronted her, telling her she was not allowed do that. "She didn't say much other than, ‘Oh, oh,’ kind of hesitated and everything and walked away," said Murphy. He did not take her name. Initially, he didn't know what was printed on the flyers, but as soon as he found out he called police. Boise police spokeswoman Lynn Hightower said it is unclear if placing the flyers is criminal act.

By the way, lost in all the politically correct furor is the fact that the flyer is accurate about the racial disparity in STDs. According to the CDC:

-- Blacks accounted for 51% of the 42,655 (including children) new HIV/AIDS diagnoses in 34 states with long-term, confidential name-based HIV reporting.
-- Blacks accounted for 48% of the 551,932 persons (including children) living with HIV/AIDS in 34 states with long-term, confidential name-based HIV reporting.
-- For black women living with HIV/AIDS, the most common methods of transmission were high-risk heterosexual contact and injection drug use.
-- For black men living with HIV/AIDS, the most common methods of HIV transmission were (in order) sexual contact with other men, injection drug use, high-risk heterosexual contact.

But the politically-correct commissars at BSU would deny this important information to students because some might find it offensive. In other words, diversity is allowed to trump safety.
