The Pride Center and LGBTQ+ Multicultural Support Network at Oregon State University posted that they do not want a student veteran group to occupy a student lounge. A letter co-penned by both groups stated that “the communities that our organizations serve are vulnerable to the ideological and practical consequences” of letting the student veteran group in the center. The Pride Center has since deleted the post.
Facebook on Wednesday announced ” a ban on praise, support and representation of white nationalism and separatism on Facebook and Instagram, which we’ll start enforcing next week. It’s clear that these concepts are deeply linked to organized hate groups and have no place on our services..” Facebook claimed in a Wednesday blog post that “people will still be able to demonstrate pride in their ethnic heritage”, except “white people issues.”
