My Complaint Letter to My College

5 posts in this topic

I have recently saw another same old brainwashing on one of web pages of my college, and finally got fed up, and sent a complaint letter to my college's departments.

I'm reprinting it here.

To whomever this concerns,

I'm deeply offended by a quote shown on the main web page of University of Louisville Libraries.

I have taken a screen shot and uploaded it to my web space at UofL.

This quote was present there as of Sunday, March 24, 2008.

http://library.uofl.edu/

If you look at bottom right corner, you will find a quote that reads:

"as long as you find a group of people that are deprived... that don’t have the opportunity for education... for a job... you’re going to have the people who will destroy, the people who will loot, and the people who say to themselves, ‘well, I'm gonna have some of the worlds goods."

This quote implies that a person, to whom a job was denied, is almost morally justified to resort to force.

I was recently denied a position at Microsoft, because they thought they could find a better candidate than me.

I am an international student, and United States government restricts my individual rights by not allowing me to freely accept job offers from American businesses. And their only "justification" is that I didn't happen to have been born on US soil.

However, I did not resort to force, and in my view, it would be utterly immoral for me to use force.

Martin Luther King said himself that one shouldn't use force to resolve problems.

I was led to believe that the University of Louisville does not promote violence and using force to resolve problems.

So, how come your main library web page shows a radically different view?

Is this something endorsed by UofL?

Is such quote really represents what UofL is all about?

I'm highly offended by the above quote. I think it spits in the face of every just moral person who realizes that using force to solve problems is immoral.

I hope the quote is taken down from a public website of public organization such as University of Louisville.

Thanks you,

Oleksandr

I don't know this University, but I recogniuse the type and I predict they will try one of four tactics

~ ignore the letter by replying with a standard, broad terms, minimal response

~ flaty deny your allegations and morally equivocate

~ threaten you and try to find some minor rule you are in breach of and really go way over the top with retribution

This does not of course invalidate your points in any way

What is the tactic number 4? (It's missing in your list.)
