Stanford University sends email to students blaming Trump for mass shootings

An email sent out to Stanford University students from a group of administrators and faculty blamed Donald Trump for the recent spate of violent incidents against people of Asian descent.

The email was sent by Cindy NG, the director of the Asian American Activities Center, and signed by several other dean-level personnel as well as 14 other professors.

According to Campus Reform, the letter reads, in part:

“the recent exponential increase in violent attacks has been fueled by a former president who blamed the COVID pandemic on the Chinese.”

“anti-Asian racism and violence must be addressed in the context of dismantling structural and institutionalized systems created to maintain white supremacy.”

“We have a right to be angry, we have a right to demand justice. We know that anti-Asian racism and violence must be addressed in the context of dismantling structural and institutionalized systems created to maintain white supremacy. We are committed to this work.”
