Description: This show focused on recent incidences of Hate at
Santa Clara University. On Tuesday, November 25th 2003, 5 Gay students
were sent a hate email titled GALA = Parasite of the World. The email
targeted members of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance (GALA), but also included
sexist, racist and anti-Semitic language. Following this email, it was
discovered that books written by Black, Jewish and Queer authors were
defaced in the SCU Library.
In response to these and other incidences that have occurred at Santa
Clara University throughout the past few years, I invited two men who
received the hate email to come on the show and discuss their experiences
and offer strategies to fight hate and discrimination.
