A video has been released that shows an official for Western Carolina University instructing resident assistants not to say “Christmas” or “Easter.”
Because they’re not inclusive.
The video of a conference call session was obtained by Young America’s Foundation through a campus bias tip line.
A woman, a housing coordinator, explains:
One thing I do want to let you keep in mind, uh, inclusive excellence is a part of our creed, so we can’t assume that all of our residents celebrate Easter so when you actually were talking about Easter eggs, I’m like, like ‘What Marvel has Easter eggs in a movie or something, like in a video game, so I thought, like something along those lines.’ Uhm. But you can do like or a scavenger hunt, you can hide things in the building, so even during the holidays, uhm, we we can’t you know say Christmas or specific to one religious holiday, we just, we always say holidays. Uhm, just because we have to be inclusive.
