College Democrats of the University of North Texas would like former New York Mayor Rudy Guiliani to be uninvited to their campus.
The outrage on campus isn’t because of Giuliani’s political affiliation, but because of his racist history as mayor. In their petition, the group sites Guiliani’s unconstitutional stop-and-frisk policy that allowed police to randomly stop anyone in the city to frisk. The policy was used almost universally to stop black men.
Recently, Giuliani, a staunch Trump supporter, called Hillary Clinton, “too stupid to be president.” That was despite Clinton leading the effort to get federal money to bail New York City out financially after the Sept. 11 attack.
The Guiliani event is scheduled to be held at the Hilton Anatole on Oct. 27. If the event goes forward, demonstrations outside the hotel are being planned.
College Democrats of the University of North Texas meet Tuesdays at 7 p.m. in Wooten Hall 312 on the UNT campus in Denton.
Here’s a link to the petition that UNT students, faculty and staff can sign.
