Jerry Kang,UCLA’s chief of Equity, Diversion and Inclusion, convemed all UCLA’s snowflakes to a meeting last night so they could all huddle together, hold hands and shelter each other from the storm they think is brewing.

PROTECTING OUR NEEDIEST.  LET US ALL PRAY FOR THESE STUDENTS AT MY GRAD SCHOOL ALMA MATER.
UCLA Office of the Vice Chancellor for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
Fellow Bruins,
I want to personally invite you to a special CrossCheck Live event titled Processing the Election. It’ll be tomorrow evening, Thursday, November 10, from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in Royce Hall. This event will offer us, as a community, a chance to gather, discuss, and digest yesterday’s Presidential election. Many of us were shocked by last night’s results. For some, this shock was accompanied by earnest excitement about our new President-elect. For others, the results have generated deep anxiety and distress – an understandable response given the rhetoric targeting certain communities throughout the campaign.
As Bruins, as members of a great university, it is our obligation to model how a community comes together in a moment like this to listen, to assess, to move forward. Together. Tomorrow’s CrossCheck Live, which attempts to bring together a range of perspectives and voices from across our campus, has been crafted in that spirit. I will personally moderate what will be a highly interactive and honest discussion, with opportunities for audience engagement.
Finally, I want to remind you that UCLA has many resources designed to help individuals who are feeling distressed. Those resources include Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), which may be reached anytime (24/7) at (310) 825-0768 or online at http://www.counseling.ucla.edu/Contact-Us. Our campus is also hosting several post-election events for students to reflect, find support, and connect with community.
I look forward to being with you tomorrow night.
With gratitude,
Jerry Kang
Vice Chancellor for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

Here’s my question: Does UCLA still have a football team? If so, they must not be very good.
