According to Fox News via The Daily Caller, Cornell University’s faculty senate passed a resolution removing race from any crime alerts sent out by campus police, claiming that the practice “endangers black people.”

Jesse Stiller reports:

Resolution 158, also titled “Regarding Crime Alerts and Race” passed last week after being introduced earlier in February, Fox News reported on Monday. The resolution stated it sought to end the “false association of Blackness with criminality” and stop the justification of the “violent policing of Black people.”

“Whereas, the knowledge that a crime may have been committed by a Black man does not make CRIME ALERT recipients any safer, but instead endangers Black people in the community, reinforcing the common phenomenon of violence against Black people on the grounds that they look like suspected criminals,” the resolution read in part.

One background document for the resolution said that 75% of suspects were identified as black and male, according to Fox.

If they wanted to end the false association of blackness with criminality, why specifically state that “the knowledge that a crime may have been committed by a Black man” doesn’t make recipients any safer? It seems they’re making their own assumptions in their attempt not to be racist.

This is the faculty senate’s work, so no surprises here. According to Cornell’s own Diversity Dashboard (of course, they have one), the faculty as of Fall 2019 was 73.7 percent white.
