SGA President announces sanctions on VP


Bowing to pressures from students angry over a social media controversy, the SGA President has announced sanctions for the vice president.

Vice President Rohini Sethi’s five sanctions include a 50-day suspension beginning Aug. 1, mandatory attendance of the Libra Project diversity workshop, mandatory attendance of three cultural events per month, a reflection letter and a public presentation in the Senate Meeting on Sep. 28.

“Since her original post, I have not felt that she has understood or respected how her actions have affected the people around her, as well as the reputation of SGA and the university,” SGA President Shane Smith said in a statement. “I believe that many of the actions she took only further escalated the situation and were not in the best interests of the organization.”

During a Senate Meeting held Wednesday, the bill SGAB-5304 was drafted and gave Smith one-time power to determine Sethi’s suspension. It was passed with 13 votes of approval, two against and one abstaining.

Between the Senate Meeting and the sanctions’ announcement, five more days of suspension were added.

“I am confident that Rohini has the ability to learn from this experience and become a better leader and a better person,” Smith said in a statement. “I will join Rohini in many of the assignments listed below and will encourage other members of SGA to do so, as well.”

A screenshot of the statement and Sethi’s sanctions are below.

    SMH … all for an organization that does this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-UVpnSWkGrU

    • guest

      It’s all about having power and control over non-blacks; especially, whites. They know most non-whites are chickens who won’t fight back, so they are allowed to do whatever they want. The sad thing is that they are so stupid that they don’t realize this crap is only going to hurt in the job market. Do you think people are going to hire blacks, when they will sue, because someone said something as horrible as ” All Lives Matter?” The travesty! ALL LIVES MATTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ALL LIVES MATTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wonder who commits most of the crime on the U of H campus? I know who does in the city of Houston.

    • smartyr than u

      SMH, i mean white people did this exact thing for centuries .

      *AHEM* ‘Rosa Parks’ kthxbye,

        What? You aren’t very intelligent.

  • Bobocefus Jones

    Free Speech is Dead at UH.

    • FlameCCT

      Too many people forget that Rev. MLK was assassinated by a Progressive Democrat supporter. I would also note that #BlackLivesMatter is very active primarily on Progressive Plantations like Houston, Austin, Baltimore, Chicago, etc. that have been controlled for decades by Progressive Democrat Elitist Masters thru their Uncle Tom Overseers like Jackson, Sharpton, etc.

  • john87

    Wow, I would have resigned. It’s ridiculous to make someone go through all that just for saying “all lives matter”. This SGA is a joke and they just lost total respect from their student body.

    • Nicole Johnson

      It’s not because she said “all lives matter” it’s because she said “forget black lives matter” I agree, she should have resigned. Someone with that perspective couldn’t possibly represent the student body of one of the most diverse schools in the country. These sanctions were placed on her because she refused to resign or even express remorse for completely dismissing one sector of the UH student body. Had she said “forget blue lives matter” the President would have had her head!

      • GUEST

        ” Black Lives Mater” means forget about all other races. It’s based on a lie. Funny how people like you say it’s because blacks are just so oppressed and mistreated and cops are killing them by the dozens, but yet you have no proof of any of this. Freddie Gray was arrested over 25 times, the same with all the other criminals killed by cops. If the freaking Justice system is so messed up, why were they even out on the streets. People aren’t going to put up with this BS much longer and you are just making more people vote for Trump. The IQs are so low that people like you and others don’t get this.

        • GUEST

          ” matter”-edit- Sorry, I type fast and don’t go back over it.

      • youhavealowIQ

        Um, boo. She said that after cops were killed by a racist black person. She meant the movement and not the race. If you can’t see that, maybe you should go back to 2nd grade. Maybe, stop pulling things at of context to suit your narrative. Just remember that in life when you mistreat people and go after them for something like this, that one day, the same thing will happen to you.

      • Charles

        I think you are putting too much emphasis on her use of the term “forget black lives matter.” Using forget the way she did is a popular colloquialism. For instance, someone my say, “I want to run for city council.” And someone might reply, “Forget that, I would run for mayor.” Yes, there is some implication of one having higher status, but it doesn’t mean to diminish the other option to non-existence.

        What happened to this young vice president is an embarrassment to her and this school. It all comes down to being ignorant — and doing ignorant. The people who pushed for this punishment need to do some soul searching. Their actions against this young lady seem no different than than mob-rule that led to the lynchings of the past.

        Eventually, I think these misguided young black youth will realize they are being bamboozled by a sham organization. If these well-intended youth would do more research into who is actually funding and running this organization I don’t think they would stay with it very long. BLM masks its racist and separatist agenda with the guise of caring about a topic that is built on a false narrative. The leaders are merely using the bodies of the marchers to give a sense of legitimacy to them.

        If they want legitimacy they need to address the cultural and community causes that lead to why so many young black males find themselves in the presence of law enforcement. If they wanted legitimacy they would form citizen watches and roam their neighborhoods helping to squash crime perpetrated by blacks on their own people.

        There is no doubt there are many problems in black communities, and many them lead right back to poverty, single-parent homes, lack of male mentors, etc. I admit these issues do create a vortex difficult to overcome, but the answer is not becoming a criminal. The truth I don’t have the answer, but I can see what is not the answer. The answer is not resisting arrest, the answer is not attacking the police, and most of all the answer is not Black Lives Matter.

      • Half Full

        Splitting hairs makes no difference. Forget Black Lives Matter has a completely different meaning without ALL Lives matter & that is not the case here. Both things were said. The student did nothing wrong

    • Chantal

      They have lost respect from the alumni, too–and I will lose respect for the university administration if this idiocy continues.

  • John Smith

    UH SGA and Mr. Smith have come to a fair punishment for Ms. Rohini. I hope these sanctions restore the student body’s faith in SGA and Ms. Rohini. Bravo!

    • GUEST

      She shouldn’t have been punishment. Do you really think there is something wrong with saying ” ALL Lives Matter;” especially, after cops were ambushed and killed in a racist attack? You really need help if you do. I’m really hoping one day you say something harmless and these idiots, or someone else, punish you for it. BLM is racist and they have been violent;especially, on a few college campuses. On one, they pushed white students up against walls and screamed racists things at them and guess what? They weren’t punished, even though it was on tape, but yet you want this girl punished. Please get help.

      • GUEST

        ” punished.” -edit

        I truly don’t think these morons can see any farther then the end of their noses. The ramifications of their type of behavior could have dire consequences should free speech ever really be needed to right a political wrong some day

    • Bob

      So holding a minority opinion in a political body on an American campus is now cause for removal and banishment? SGA Pres. Shane Smith is basically Joseph Stalin without the awesome porn-stache. You remember Stalin…right? The guy who executed tens of millions of Russian citizens for holding opinions that differed from his? Except for degree, this is no different. And what these fools fail to recognize is that Campus diversity is useless as an educational or socialization tool if every student must pass the same opinion/belief litmus test.

        Sad that many facets of the US are behaving like little third world dictatorships

        • FlameCCT

          Truly sad.
          BTW: they are Progressive Plantations with Elitist Masters and Uncle Tom Overseers controlling the Proletariat Serfs.

      • BillRM

        I wonder the reactions of possible future employers of Shane Smith when they google his name.

        Seem likely that he had done more harm to himself then anyone else.

        • Bob

          Bingo. My firm googles all applicants looking for exactly this kind of fascist, group-think nonsense. Mr. Smith has significantly narrowed the number of his potential future employers. Acting the “Little Napolean” by yanking the reins on a fellow student may feel great today but it will have decades-long negative ramifications on his employability. Too bad for him.

    • Karl

      Which color do you prefer for your shirts: black or brown?

      Fair? YOu’re punishing a student over a few words. There were no slurs.

    • Half Full

      No, you have invented a delusional reality and arrived at false conclusions based on your unrealistic, and self absorbed juvenile attitudes. Furthermore U have made yourselves and the University of Houston look like idiots who’s educations won’t be worth the paper your diploma will be printed on.
      Such stupidity has no place in a University. Your complete ignorance of your own failures say much about the decline of the University of Houston which once was a decent place of learning.

    • Half Full

      The student body is out of touch with REALITY if they agree in any way , shape, or form with this ludicrous punishment. Ms Rohini is a HERO . Smith will never have a job in the US, hope he’s still yelling BRAVO then

  • Charles
  • HulkSmash

    Hmm…a public university denying a student free speech. I believe that is a violation of her civil rights which will put federal and state funding in jeopardy. I hope she takes it up the chain. What she said was not offensive at all…and you people need to grow up because you’ll never be employable. We don’t have “safe spaces” in offices in the real world, so buck up now, kiddies.

    Also, love how they went around their own rules to sanction this young lady. I can tell you…U of H is going to lose a lot of $$$ this fall because of these clowns and the anti-gun student body president they have.

    • Macranthunter

      Sadly the High Court decided that college campuses enjoy a truncated version of our civil rights., The rights of press, arms and movement may be curtailed for the interests of an atmosphere of education. Better to just withdraw and seek a scholarship from a right minded constructionist University elsewhere. What good is a degree from Houston now anyway?

    • Macranthunter

    The Harvard Business Review just released the first major study on the effectiveness of “diversity training” and according to their conclusions the multi-billion dollar diversity training industry is built on a foundation of bull**** (a/k/a critical race theory). In short, diversity training is more likely to harden bias in participants than to inculcate what SJWs call “cultural competency.” So ordering Sethi to take diversity training is purely punitive.

    https://hbr.org/2016/07/why-diversity-programs-fail

    • GUEST

      Are non-blacks the only ones that have to take diversity, because I feel like the majority of black people would benefit from this? Also, are these university punishments just with this organization, or is she being punished school-wise? If it’s just, because of this organization, why not just quit? If it has to do with the school, I feel like she really has a great legal case.

      • Half Full

        You hit the nail on the head. The people who need cultural diversity training are not the ones getting it.

    • Half Full

      Completely agree . Anyone who was born in the US and went to public schools is likely to be very accepting of other cultures and ethnicities. This, however, is not true for immigrants who came to this country as adults and work here in our culturally diverse society. Ironically, these courses are aimed at Americans rather then these newly arrived foreigners who are much more likely to treat women, children or the poor differently then everyone else.

  • Charles

    This is going national. It’s time for the school leadership to step in and stop this madness. http://dailycaller.com/2016/07/31/all-lives-matter-gets-texas-student-suspended-sent-to-diversity-workshop/

  • VanceJ

    When she said All lives matter, that IS diversity.!!!!!

  • Operaman22

    Courts have found again and again that 1st amendment rights apply in situations like these on public university campuses. I would fight this tooth and nail. Let the university try to defend their behavior in shutting down this student. This PC, white guilt crud needs to end.

    • VanceJ

      Were I her, I think I would look for a different University, one that is NOT founded on Left BS !!!!!

      • Oldchopper

        Where would you find such a University these days in America that isn’t a Christian campus? You won’t. It would be better to get more students tethered to God anyways. You can tell by their comments and the decision they’re totally lost in their thinking. Christian University sounds like the right place to learn the truth and get their minds straightened out. Besides, it would drive the left nuts.

        • You don’t learn “the truth” at a Christian college, just a different brand of superstitious nonsense.

    • GUEST

      I don’t get all the followers who says Freedom of Speech only means the government can’t punish you. First of all, the government can punish you for your speech. If people don’t believe me, ask people who have been punished for threatening a President. Secondly, if regular businesses and people can punish you for what you say, then we really don’t have freedom. The people of today just seem to be changing English, government, History and not for the better.

      • Wayne Brekhus

        Because that’s what freedom of speech actually means legally in the first amendment. Freedom of speech doesn’t mean you can tell your neighbor that their cooking sucks and then complain that your rights were violated because they punished you by banning you from future dinner invitations.

        • ArsVampyre

          It does if they take your money or money from say, the HOA you both belong to in order to do it. People have this delusional notion that freedom of speech applies only to overt government action; it does not. Assuming that the position is an elected position, the SGA should not have the right to persecute members over speech others dislike. And evidently they didn’t; they had to create a new rule to use, one time, for this. If she sues, she wins. They made a rule just to persecute her. Incredibly foolish.

          • Brian Sculler

            this is a typical behavior of a mean girl.
            they use other people to punish someone.
            For girls the status is very important.

            This classical female behavior.
            Smart sociopath do the same.

            A typical man would just hit you in the face and be direct.
            Woman will make you suffer.

            You people dont recognize it, because feminists kept telling you that all stereotypes about women are false.

            But all male stereotypes are ok, and should be used against men.
            And feminist will always present themselves as the nicest person, who only think about minorities.
            (women never marry a minority comparing to men)

            Are you noticing a pattern?

        • GUEST

          What? You poor thing. You actually think this makes sense. Yes, it does mean you shouldn’t suffer consequences for what you say, unless it incites violence, or fear, which they did in Ferguson, but somehow they weren’t punished. Who decides what is wrong to say, honey? The majority? Um, the majority agreed with Hitler if you remember and you see how that turned out. The majority is wrong a lot of times, because the majority can be made up of a lot of followers. If someone has high self-esteem they will be able to handle someone telling them their cooking sucks and ask how to make it better. You don’t get this. Now, shouldn’t you be punished for what you just said, by your logic?

          • David Keith

          It’s absurd.
          Just another conformation that we live in a matriarchy.
          I guess I have to keep saying that women are great to have a voice.

      • guest

        It needs to be undermined. It’s based on a lie. First of all, blacks aren’t treated any differently in this country. If anything, they are treated better. Affirmative action, can say racist things and not get punished, don’t have to have the grades of others, etc. If the Justice system is so unfair, why did all these blacks criminals who were killed have so many arrests and yet were out on the streets? I was on a jury where this black guy beat this Hispanic kid with a bat while robbing them, we had to let him off, because we didn’t have enough evidence. Afterwards, they came in and told us all his past arrests for robbery and assault and women were actually crying, because they felt so bad for the kid who had brain damage, because of this.. So, maybe instead of playing victims and protesting people, work and study harder and be happy that any criminal is in jail, boo.

          We hold white criminals accountable. We disown white criminals in fact. You don’t see white people crying on TV because a white criminal got shot resisting arrest. We tell our white children to STFU and do what you are told and if U are dumb enough to get into trouble be prepared for the consequences & don’t expect help from mom and dad.

          We make white people responsible for their own lives; both their successes & failures. We don’t blame the cops, mommy, daddy, teacher, boss, or society when white people fail.

          Why don’t we all get REAL HONEST here and say what the REAL problem is. Because I don’t see SUCCESSFUL MINORITIES dancing in the streets and crying RACISM.
          The only people whining are criminals and people who are supporting criminals. WHAT A JOKE.
          Criminals are ALL murderers. They are CANCER in a community, they kill slowly over time anything and anyone. And BLM has criminals dancing in the streets.
          U are a LOSER no matter what color U are.

      • Les Legato

        The BLM is Marxist garbage created to defend THUGS AND RAPISTS AND DRUG DEALERS.

        You no more care for black’s lives THAN YOU DO FOR CREATING ANY WORTH AND VALUE in society. You are nihilist trash, you ignore black children getting massacred in ghettos by BLACK GANGSTERS, and you defend those gangsters when they are killed resisting arrest.

        WHERE ARE YOU WHEN BLACK COPS ARE SHOT?
        CALLING THEM UNCLE TOMS?

        The most telling justice here is when trash like you are raped and beaten by the thugs you defend, and then complain when the PIGS don’t show up fast enough.

      This has become a pattern on college campuses across the nation. The problem is none of these students has a clue about any of the real threats we face in the world today. Americans are dying in the war on terror overseas, but no one here even sees a coffin anymore. To these kids death is something you can fix by pressing the reset button in the video game. They are clueless about REAL suffering, REAL sacrifice, and REAL injustice.

      Lets be honest, the offenses that REALLY appall them are responsibility & accountability, because they want NEITHER. They are the entitled bunch who thinks they are deserving of everything and shouldn’t be made to do ANYTHING to get it.

  • tryingtopickaname

    Day-amn…what a bunch of malevolent little fascists with a such stunning intellectual deficits that the question must asked… how did they meet the entrance requirements? Certainly they have no workable knowledge or interest in history and civics. How embarrassing that we Americans tolerate such brattish ignorance in our college students. How retro Orwell, crybabies.

    • guest

      It’s not really hard at U of H. The entrance requirements aren’t very stringent and basically they are becoming just as bad as PVU and TSU. You basically go there, if you don’t want to leave Houston, you can’t get in at another college, you are a minority, and if you are a athlete. I’m sorry, to the few who go there who are brilliant.

      • Julie Le

        UH is ranked in the top 10 schools for “hardest school to earn an A”. UH is home to the #1 entrepreneurship program in the nation, #1 sales program, and so much more. The entrance requirements are competitive depending on which college you are applying for. Please do not doubt the capabilities and work ethics of UH students.

        • guest

          I’m sorry, but I don’t think you would have many of the students, if this was true. I’ve heard so many that go there and who have graduated from there who don’t even speak proper English. I’m sure in your case, you are one of the exceptions, so don’t take this personally. I think it was probably harder for you to get in because you are Asian. Sadly, colleges require you to have higher scores and grades. No one talks about this, but I have had people who have worked at other colleges who have told me this. I didn’t doubt it. Just read my last sentence above.

        • ThomasA

          Maybe its hard to earn an A because the students are so stupid. Evidence is pointing towards this conclusion.

          • Julie Le

            Ok, Thomas. Evidences point towards you being a close minded idiot. Don’t strain your brain trying to reply because I certainly won’t bother reading it.

          • ThomasA

            “Evidences”? I rest my case.

        • Smartyr than u

          I’m sorry, you’re mistaking ‘hard to earn an A’ as credible, which does not correlate whatsoever.

          Earning an ‘A’ at another college(UT AUSTIN) demonstrates how much time and effort you put in towards that class, not that its impossible and difficult.

          Sometimes, you LEARN the most with the easiest A’s.

          Please, competitive? Try McCombs, where if you don’t have a 3.8 you’re not going anywhere. and Sales(really ???) and Entrepreneurship(I’ve been running my own business since freshman year).

      How dare you insulted atheists by comparing us to Mr.Smith and take note of some of the more non-religion foundering fathers such as Jefferson and Paine and their writings.

      All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit.

      In no instance have… the churches been guardians of the liberties of the people.

      James Madison

      And the day will come when the mystical generation of Jesus, by the supreme being as his father in the womb of a virgin will be classed with the fable of the generation of Minerve in the brain of Jupiter. But may we hope that the dawn of reason and freedom of thought in these United States will do away with this artificial scaffolding, and restore to us the primitive and genuine doctrines of this most venerated reformer of human errors.

    Say good bye to my alumni donation
    What an embarrassment.
    I will donate to a University which actually knows what Fairness, equality, and freedom of speech is. Not to mention one which knows and appreciates the TRUE value of EVERY human life.
    What a disgusting display of fascism from the University. I hope the student gets a lawyer and sues them up one end and down the other. And I hope they take their money and go to another school one who doesn’t cater to little snowflakes who can’t handle a thing called REALITY.

    Black Lives Matter has become a race baiting, excuse for thugs to disobey the law.
    If people REALLY cared about black lives they would combat black crime which kills fully 40 people for every 1 black shot by a policeman, and MOST of those were shot resisting arrest.
    You don’t get to resist arrest snowflakes. When u break the law Barney the purple dinosaur is not gonna come kiss your knuckles and transport U magically to court. Its actually a SERIOUS thing to break the law.
    The EVIL white people do not support or throw parades for our own WHITE criminals. We disown them. WHY? Because criminals are killers. They kill entire communities SLOWLY over time like a cancer in the brain. They take mothers, fathers, children, siblings, friends, neighbors , coworkers, jobs, businesses, and dignity. We tell our WHITE children that if they find themselves face to face with a policeman and a gun as the result of their own doing, do not CALL home and cry. STFU ,do what you’re told and suffer the consequences. If U get shot. We will pray for U but we won’t be blaming the police.
    This is how we treat our own people. Maybe others think its harsh. But don’t call us racist for treating you EQUALLY.
    We fully support the black community and will offer every resource. But the white community will NEVER support criminals of ANY color

      • guest

        Have you guys thought about doing a protest? This will only stop when people like you take a stand.

    • Organite

      How abysmally shortsighted of you.

      If you knew anything about UH (or most universities in general) you would know that SGA means little to nothing to the student body as a whole. It is not a representation of the students at UH and in fact, SGA would consider themselves lucky if even 20% of the students voted in SGA elections.

      If you went to any university and asked everyone who their SGA VP even was I’d bet money that about every other person wouldn’t even know because that’s how little SGA matters in the scheme of a university, and UH is no different in that regard, except for ours managed to garner national headlines somehow.

      • FlameCCT

        However the SGA does reflect the attitudes and actions of the university’s administrators and professors.

        • Organite

          No it doesn’t.
          The Student Government Association and the administrative mirror The Faculty Senate are by definition two separate entities. Their influence over each other is nonexistent and judging by how often they are at odds with each other I can easily see them not being in line with this decision.
          If people would do a smidgen of research before they get out the pitchforks they’d realize that this is not something that UH as a whole condones and is in fact a tightly knit network of 2ish dozen people that hardly anyone here cares about.

          • FlameCCT

            If you think that a university’s administration and professors, the majority of whom are Progressive, does not affect SGA or other organizations then you are truly delusional. I would also note that I haven’t seen anyone from the administration nor professors that have said anything against the lynch mob that is violating the young lady’s Constitutional Rights. So until someone in authority at UH actually stands up against this Progressive fascism then UH is condoning it by silent consent.

          • Organite

            Except they did: https://twitter.com/UHouston/status/760195178481102848

            So spare me the insults because this is what happens when someone who has no affiliation to the school, no familiarity with its workings, and/or willing ignorance to provoke a witch hunt tries to get involved in a situation they can’t comprehend because it involves looking a little bit further than their own nose.

            Again, the SGA, the Faculty Senate, and the Board of Regents for that matter are typically at odds with one another, and if you need any reference to that, just review this publication’s archives. Saying that they’re all somehow in cahoots with one another to punish this girl is the truly delusional claim.

          • FlameCCT

            Right. It might help if you actually linked to something.

            Don’t let your delusions grow into paranoia. I never said they were in it together however when the administration/faculty allows this type of action to occur then they are complicit. I also find it amusing that you claim the attitude/ideology of the administration/faculty have no influence over students/student organizations.

            BTW: My family lives here, as have I although work took me to other places, and I am finally in a position to return this year.

          • Organite

            I find it amusing that a person of right-wing persuasion automatically thinks that colleges and universities are liberal indoctrination institutes.

            And I’m not sure if you were making a underhanded statement about my views in relation to your claims about the university, but me defending my school is monumentally different from defending the SGA’s position which is what I think you think I’m doing. I’m not. In fact, I do think this punishment is an overreach, but I don’t let it ruin my day or engage in the witch hunt because SGA barely matters compared to the grand scheme of the entire university or what it represents.

            Look, when you make it back to Houston, spend a while at UH, get a drink at The Den or Calhouns, or spend a while in a highly trafficked area of campus. UH’s diversity of background, culture, and ideas is really something special, and it’s unfortunate that stupidity like this is all our school can ever seem to garner national headlines for.

        This is BS.
        White people support the black community.
        White people do not support criminals.

        Criminals Kill people…..SLOWLY.
        Criminals kill people even when they are not around. The drug dealer has killed many people and gets away with MANY murders. The addicts who OD’d were someone’s brother, sister, father, mother, son or daughter. They have taken all these people from their loved ones. Does BLM care? No

        The gangs have killed businesses and jobs because people refuse to open them up out of fear or intimidation. Does BLM care about all the innocent black people who they prevent from becoming independent business owners? Do they care that they have deprived decent law abiding citizens from making an honest living for their families? NO

        Criminals have killed the childhoods of countless children by taking over neighborhoods where they might play. The criminals steal the children, take their lives, their futures, their hope and dreams. The criminals take doctors, lawyers, teachers, and businessmen and turn them into drug dealers, thiefs, and murderers. Does BLM care- no.
        In fact BLM ,in supporting criminals ,is supporting the deaths of COUNTLESS black communities. And the criminals LOVE them. Wouldn’t You?
        White people do not support racism. But neither do we support criminals. White cops who ARE racist are also VERY likely criminals themselves and they will be caught as all criminals are. Most of these shootings were criminals resisting arrest. Some simple truths. Don’t become a criminal. Don’t resist arrest. Don’t mouth off at cops. Respect yourself respect your community. THAT will cut down on cop shootings justified or not.

  • JYLD

    Seems to me there are several things wrong here. Other posters have covered many of them. So I’ll talk about some of the others. It seems to me that if the student government association has a constitution that the SGA legislative body has circumvented their constitution in improper ways. It would seem to me the punished student has valid due process complaints.

    The legislative body appears to have passed what is a classic bill of attainder. A bill of attainder is a law passed by a legislative body that pronounces a person guilty of a crime or offense without a trial and punishes that person without a trial. That seems to be exactly what these fascist social justice warriors have done. Bills of Attainder violate the USA constitution and certainly violate the punushed students due process rights and may violate the SGA constitution.

    This student should contact FIRE a non profit that provides free lawyers for these kinds of cases. I believe this student would have a very good chance of getting a state or federal judge to enjoin the SGA and put a halt to this matter. The SGA might be able to go through the impeachment process but this bill of attainder approach chosen by these budding fascists is wrong and should be slapped down !

    The fact that the school senate, accountable to the university, gave Smith “one time unlimited (read: Dictatorial) powers to punish Sethi as was seen fit” speaks to the dangerous nature of these echo chambers that have been crafted for our future generations – where all speech is monitored and subject to the whims of a single ideology. Stalin would be proud.

    Much less, it would have been *too hard* and *too public* (they weren’t counting on this social media firestorm) for them to have gone through the outlined procedures in the handbook: 3/4 of student senators to approve impeachment (not likely) and then trial & conviction by the student supreme court of improper conduct (not likely, given the facts of the case)

    I sincerely hope that Sethi sues the university (and refuses the almost assured settlement offer) for allowing this charade to go on, rather than shutting down this primadonna, better suited to leading the North Korean student union than the campus-wide one.

    Orwell comes to Texas. Have the wrong opinion that people should all be treated equally and the SGA will make up special rules to sanction you.

    This is just baffling. Are we going to assume that every single non-white person in America is by default a victim of oppression and every white person is an oppressor? Seems to me that this “institutional power” that allegedly supports racism against minorities is imaginary. The Black Student Association can tweet out “No White Lives Matter” without sanction, but “All Lives Matter” gets a sanction? That does sound like institutional racism – against white people.

    Sounds to me like the pigs have become the new farmers.

    I have three children – two of which are nearing college age. None of them will be attending The University of Houston as it is obvious that it is openly hostile towards white people. Have the wrong opinion there are and the University will leverage its institutional might to liable and slander you. That is not a safe place for students to learn and freely express themselves.

    If it were me I would sue the college into bankruptcy. What they did to this girl is insane. This Shane Smith character should be held personally liable for damage he has done to this woman’s character. Despite his weasel worded letter that was carefully crafted as to avoid making overt statements about her character, he still is civilly liable for damage. If you read the letter, he states that her actions warrant disciplinary action, but he doesn’t say why. Mr Smith, if you are going to call someone a racist then do it you coward. Put your money where your mouth is.

      And his statement letter and sanctions are in conflict. He paints a picture in the statement that she was uncooperative in some way – which led to the escalation of sanctions. Yet, in sanction 4 he states that she was more than cooperative and understood the opposing views. Which was it? Was she cooperative or not? Or was the echo chamber so loud that he did what weak leaders do, cave. I think it was the last item. What a weak person and he calls hemslef a leader. Ha 🙂

I condemn most of the rhetoric spoken by the far right, particularly those that vilify minority rights groups such as BLM. However, the young lady has no intention in doing so. She spoke out of passion. She used probably not the wisest choice of phrasing to communicate her point considering high tensions. But for the SGA to make a calculated decision to punish her because she tried to emphasize that no single life matters over another in a poor way is disgusting. As an Alumnus, I will call for all Alumni to reconsider their support temporarily until the student government is reformed and its leaders either rectify their mistakes or resign! #RemoveSS #RemoveRed

      She really didn’t use the wrong phrasing. If you see the tweet and have an IQ over 100, you can easily tell she meant the group and she was 100 percent correct. Funny how black students and BLM never get punished for their phrasing. This is the problem and the utter hypocrisy.

      • RemoveSS

        OK you are completely misunderstanding my point. Obviously she was making a reference to the group. But my point is that she wasn’t saying “FORGET BLACK LIVES MATTER!” as in…”Black lives dont matter”. She was more saying ” Forget” in the context of ” Hey are you gonna win state championship?” ” Forget that! I am gonna win national!” Meaning, she wanted to emphasize the idea that all lives are equal…and yes it was probably a slight towards the movement but not in the way its members and fanboys have complained. They think her saying ” Forget Black Lives Matter” means we should ignore their message and not care about black lives. They twisted her poorly chosen words for maximum carnage toward her intentions. THAT is what I was inferring to.

Actions by SGA, a registered student organization subject to its own governance, are not University actions and do not affect the academic standing of a student at the University of Houston. The University of Houston continues to stand firm in support of free speech and does not discipline students for exercising their Constitutional rights.”

      Half Full and Charles are correct. These organizations operate within the University. Whomever UH’s PR person is should be fired for posting that nonsense and drivel.

Just straight up BULLSHIT.

  • Jim Johnson

    Whomever is teaching students constitutional law at UH, needs to be fired. The Constitution applies to any action a public institution takes, not just the “jailing” of individuals. Do people in America really think the First Amendment only applies to jail??? Jesus, whats happened to basic high school civics???
    The only thing I can think of that might save the SGA is if it isn’t an arm of the school. Then you could argue that this isn’t an extension of the school doing this, but instead is just a club with its own rules and regulations. But I have no idea how an SGA works, so I’m not sure how much merit that argument has.
    But please run letters like this by someone with a legal background (or somebody capable of free thinking) before you announce to the world that America’s college students have no idea how the United States Constitution works.

    good riddens, yeah all lives matter, but this is America, where Black people and african Americans were enslaved for 100+ years, its absurd to deny the effects of those actions. It is our country’s history, but people do not realize its a vast majority of black’s histories as well. This is America, where, never have All other LIVES been counted only as 3/5th’s of a person or enslaved and lynched and discriminated. so yes all lives matter, but black lives might matter a little more in this case. Well actually, black lives matter in addition to the given fact that white and brown lives matter. Plus, she’s not even pretty … .

      I think you forgot about the native American Indians you idiot.

    Shane A. Smith needs some serious advising from adults in the real world. Does an anti-police rally count as a “cultural event” in Bizzaro world?

    • smartyr than u

      …you assume too much negroquarter.

      I suggest you read my posts.

  • James Blackpenny

    Agree with the poster below

    This student should contact FIRE a non profit that provides free lawyers for these kinds of cases. I believe this student would have a very good chance of getting a state or federal judge to enjoin the SGA and put a halt to this matter. The SGA might be able to go through the impeachment process but this bill of attainder approach chosen by these budding fascists is wrong and should be slapped down !

  • Les Legato

    REVOLTING.

    I hope Sethi sues the daylights out of Smith, the SGA and the University. This Maoist reedcuation garbage must be vomited out from America’s universities.

    Be warnedm students: If you do not speak out against this PC trash, we business owners WILL HOLD IT AGAINST YOU DURING JOB INTERVIEWS.

    We want courageous Americans, not marxist SHEEP.

  • Norm Frink

    This Shane Smith is a clownish SJW who can’t write. Rohini Sethi’s only mistake is she never should have apologized or backed off in any way. I know it would be very difficult, but the only way to end garbage like this is to face down self-righteous McCarthyite bullies like Smith and his supporting cast. Where are the good students of U of H who should be standing up against this?

  • Half Full

    U of H is backing away from this group. However they still allow them to propagate their hate on campus. This girl did nothing wrong .

    Six Years After Shane A. Smith Graduates…
    Yuki Watanabe jumped off the last step of the bus. She pulled the straps of her backpack that held her third grade books tight across her shoulders and ran toward her waiting mother.
    “How was your day sweetie?”
    “It was good.”
    “That’s great, tell me all about it.”
    “Okay, I drew you a picture,” Yuki said with a pause. “After dinner can we go buy an AsianLivesMatter t-shirt?”
    Yuki’s mother was caught off guard by her daughter’s request. “An AsianLivesMatter t-shirt? Why baby?”
    “Two older kids had BlackLivesMatter t-shirts on the bus and my friend said we should get t-shirts too.”
    Yuki’s mother ushered her daughter to the front door and watched the bus move down the street.
    Later, after dinner, Yuki was insistent on getting the t-shirt. “Listen baby. Those boys shouldn’t be wearing those shirts.”
    “Are they bad shirts?” Yuki asked.
    “No Yuki, they’re not bad, but they should not be worn in school. I’ll call the superintendent tomorrow to see what’s going on. It’s time for you bath anyway.”
    Moments later, Yuki had bubbles up to her chin. “Do Asian lives matter mommy?”
    “Of course they do?”
    Yuki splashed a bit in the foamy water, “Do Asian lives matter more?”
    “No baby. No life matters more than another. Except you, you matter more to me than anything in the world. Let’s get you toweled off and into bed.”
    The next morning Yuki’s mother escorted her daughter onto the bus. She looked toward the back and noticed several kids with BlackLivesMatter t-shirts. She kissed Yuki goodbye. Then she watched as the bus disappeared down the street. She ran into the house and after a few phone calls she was given the number to the local school’s superintendent.
    On the third ring a man answered, “Superintendent Shane Smith, how can I help you?”
    “Hi My name is Saki Watanabe. My daughter came home yesterday wanting me to purchase an AsianLivesMatter t-shirt.”
    “Okay?”
    “She wanted the shirt because she said she saw older kids wearing BlackLivesMatter t-shirts. I’ve read the by-laws, that’s not allowed.”
    “Mrs, Watanabe, we sometimes allow our African-American students to wear BlackLivesMatter t-shirts, but it’s not often. Yesterday was Monday, the 17th. It’s within my power to make temporary rulings with respect to our by-laws.”
    “It is? Without a consensus?”
    “Yes.”
    “You know National Foundation Day in Japan is coming up in February. Am I allowed to send my daughter to school with an AsianLivesMatter t-shirt that day?”
    “You can certainly make a request. We will give it its due consideration.”
    “What if I do it regardless?”
    “Then you’re daughter will be in violation of rules and possibly expelled.”
    “Okay, on bus 321 there were several students wearing BlackLivesMatter shirts this morning. I suspect you will notify them of the infraction?”
    Saki heard Mr. Smith’s hand as he covered the transmitter of the handset. Moments later, he lifted his hand. “Mrs. Watanabe we will find the students and suggest they change their attire.”
    “Suggest?”
    “Yes, we don’t want any issues. We’ll take care of it. I assure you. Is there anything else I can help you with?”
    “No, thank you. So you’ll take care of it?”
    “Yes, I will personally take care of it.”
    “Thanks you.”
    The next Monday, Yuki jumped off the bus and ran to her mother. “Mom, I really, really want an AsianLivesMatter t-shirt!”
    “Why baby?”
    “Almost all the older kids are wearing BlackLivesMatter and you said my life mattered too.”
    The next morning Yuki and her mother, Suki, walked into the school. Both were wearing matching AsianLivesMatter t-shirts. Yuki, after a student review, was expelled for two weeks and the school,at the request of Shane A. Smith, filed a protective order against Suki Watanabe.

    I don’t understand what the big deal is. Ms. Rohini released a facebook statement that she’s moving on from this and wants to grow from it. She stated she has no plans of suing and doesn’t want this to distract from her future academic goals and career aspirations. Good for her.

    • Sane Asylum

      It’s not her. It’s him.. Shane A. Smith. Who is he to determine that his opinions (see the UHSGA facebook page where he posts opinions on race relations) is better that hers. Why is his opinions on facebook fine and within the rules of the SGA, and her’s on twitter not? Why is he allowed to post his opinion but she isn’t?

  • Oldchopper

    And these clowns are the next generation of leaders? We are in some serious trouble here. They play both sides and punish the side that was politically incorrect but Constitutionally correct. What morons!

    WHY WASN’T SHE EXPELLED??? THIS IS AN OUTRAGE!!!

    • realplan

      Why does your mommy still let you use her computer.

  • CenTexKev

    Unbelievable that in today’s America #AllLivesMatter is considered inappropriate speech! When I was in university, one side of an argument did not try to shut down the other side; except for death threats or calls for violence, any opinion was cool. The current student “snowflakes” on college campus are becoming the laughing stock of the adult real world. Ms Sethi should file a lawsuit against the UH Student Body Government. My brother, the attorney, and those attorneys he works with all feel she would win. The fascists in modern America are not the conservatives, it is the “progressives” who try to shut down all opposing opinions.

  • FinallyFree

    Absolutely disgusted with UofH right now. The rest of Houston supports you, Ms. Sethi.

    • Organite

      It’s not UH.
      It’s the SGA at UH.

  • BPatMann

    Also, you are under double-secret probation.

  • nvst18

    Congratulations, Mr. Shane A Smith. UH Alumni are now ashamed of our Alma Mater. Your Fascist thinking disguised as PC thought police is disgusting. Perhaps, you should step down. You obviously do not respect life, or freedom.

    During my time at UH, I was one of the very few conservative opinion writers for the Daily Cougar. I am sad to see that the situation has deteriorated so horribly on campus that the self-appointed leftist thought police are now subjecting students to reeducation and thought training.

    ALL lives matter.

    Many people who are not African American view Black Lives Matter as a fascist, racist disruptive organization, It scares us to death. I would be terrified to learn on a campus where their groupies are given such power and free reign. I’m sure many other “white” and “non black” alumni would be as well. Why don’t you think about that?

  • Rain

    Look at the board. Not one of their lives matter. They virtually said so themselves with this decision, and they’re clueless. Absolutely clueless.

  • Frank Lewis

    I don’t know why Smith, and others, think this is helpful, it just pisses people off. People are sick of this kind of S*it.

  • Pope Woody

    Congratulations, Shane. You have made it easier for me to help my daughter pick a college. UH is now off the list.

    #ALLLIVESMATTER ESPECIALLY #BLUELIVES F*&K BLM, and all you special little f&cking snowflakes. Grow up. Ms Rohini’s right to the 1st amendment is more important then some pissant special snowflake greivance mongers.
    I hope UofH’s admissions dry up and funding from the state is pulled. I’d call for the legislature to pull funding for ANY and all social justice programs it is time to end the political correct crap.
    It is official U&H is a communist/fascist re-education camp, not a school.

    Average ACT for University of Houston is 24. Really, really low.

    Average ACT for Rice University is 34.

    Mr. Shane Smith is probably bringing the average ACT score even lower. The SGA for UH really stands for Stupid Group Alert

    • realplan

      I have several other definitions for the acronym SGA, though most of them are very anti PC and would cause sissy Shane to cry.

  • FlushRyan

    So a white guy, Shane Smith, is dictating how a woman of color, Ms.Sethi, should feel. Sounds like sexual and racial harassment of Ms. Sethi.

  • David Keith

    A tiny guy like Shane is going to have issues. Remember “short guy’s lives matter”

  • garyfouse

    One can only guess at the training this student will be subjected to. Perhaps, it will consist of a member of the Black Student Union screaming, “Do you believe that black lives matter?” into her face until she confesses, “Yes, Comrade. Black lives matter.” Then, and only then, will she be allowed to return to her position as student vice president-under probation, of course.

    It is Shane Smith who is need of training- in the First Amendment.

  • Mark Hoaglund

    Shane A. Smith should be summary expelled from the university for this. In fact he should be held criminally liable as well.

  • John Gordon

    Obviously real scum and wack jobs in charge

  • realplan

    Ms Shane Smith, you are a limp wristed sissy. Rohini did NOTHING wrong!!! I suggest you pull your snooty nose out of your behind and become a real person!!

  • realplan

    Rohini, if I were you, I would resign from that board and publicly shame them for their impudent behavior. The purpose of taking leadership positions in college is to teach leadership that will help you become successful in real life. People like Shane will only go through life crying and throwing hissy fits when people have an opinion “he” disagrees with. I put “he” in quotes because, at this point, I seriously doubt his manhood.
