Profs: Daniels leaves it to us to fend off racist, right-wing threats
We believe our universities and communities ought to be constitutive of freedom understood in the broadest possible sense. The freedom, for instance, for women to walk alone at night without threat of violence. Or the freedom for people of color and people of Jewish and Muslim faiths to be able to come to class without the shadow of violence mocking us. The principle of free speech is only one freedom which ought to be part of this expansive assurance of freedom to work and live on our campus and in our community without threat of violence. What good is the right to free speech if it is severed from the right to work and exist freely without the threat of racist violence?
