Classes at the University of Chicago were canceled Monday after the FBI notified the university about an online threat. At the same time, 21-year-old Jabari Dean was being charged after making an explicit online threat to kill white students and staff on the campus in retaliation for the police killing a year ago of Laquan McDonald, for which a white police officer has been charged with first degree murder. Dean is a student at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Dean promised to kill 16 white students or staff plus any white cops who responded. This was a reference to the 16 shots fired at McDonald.
Fousesquawk comment: The Black Lives Matter movement is taking on dangerous aspects. It is now resulting in intimidation of white students as seen at Dartmouth College and other campuses.
For years, I have been warning that the constant demonization of Israel on campuses by
pro-Palestinian students will one day result in a tragedy on a university campus-most likely the murder of a Jewish student. Could it be that the Black Lives Matter movement will get somebody on a college campus killed first?
It is not enough that college administrators decry racism or bigotry against minorities. They must also decry bigotry against all people including Jews and Caucasians. Yes, Folks: All lives matter.
