Student Facing 50 Day Suspension for Saying 'All Lives Matter'

Politically correct tyranny is afoot at the University of Houston.

I was recently made aware of a student at the university who was suspended by the student government association for 50 days and ordered to attend diversity training over a reference she made about the Black Lives Matter crowd.

“#ForgetBlackLivesMatter; more like AllLivesMatter,” wrote student Rohini Sethi on Facebook. Miss Sethi, the vice president of the school’s student government association, wrote those  words last month just a few hours after five Dallas police officers were assassinated.

Her belief that every life matters set off a firestorm of controversy among students – including the Black Student Union.
