Student newspaper 'dissents' from campus protests


A student newspaper at Claremont McKenna College has published an op-ed dissenting from the current protests occurring at the school and others across the country.

The editorial board of the Claremont Independent, described as the conservative-leaning student paper, wrote they were "disappointed" in many of the protesters and campus administrators who gave them their way.

The editorial board wrote they were disappointed in Dean Mary Spellman, who was forced to resign due to the protests. Spellman had written an email to a student that was judged as discriminatory, and she was chastised for not doing enough to create a "safe space" for minority students on campus.
