Bucknell President Sees Positive Changes After Racist Radio Remarks


After racist remarks and a racial slur that were used on the airwaves on Bucknell University radio station WVBU on March 20 cast a dark cloud over the school, the institution's President John Bravman thinks he has found the cloud's silver lining. According to The Patriot-News, Bravman sees this incident as one that will bring about positive changes and more inclusiveness. Bravman said in a school-wide email Sunday: "The suffering many of our fellow Bucknellians have been experiencing for far too long is sharply in focus."

The Bucknell University Student Government will be holding a "solidarity ceremony" on Tuesday evening, which will feature student speakers, singing of the alma mater, and the unveiling of an anti-discrimination creed for the school.

The three students involved with the racist outburst on the school radio station have since been expelled.
