A student diversity officer who came to prominence in a race row after allegedly tweeting the hashtag #killallwhitemen has been charged by police with sending a threatening communication.
Hard to believe that THIS woman is a DIVERSITY officer! That’s right! Wouldn’t you think of all people, someone that should UPHOLD diversity should at least support diversity?! I guess not in this case!
In a story from The Guardian:
Bahar Mustafa, of Goldsmiths, University of London, is set to appear at Bromley magistrates court on 5 November.
The 28-year-old from Edmonton, north-east London, faces two charges. One is sending a communication conveying a threatening message between 10 November 2014 and 31 May 2015. The second is for sending a grossly offensive message via a public communication network between 10 November 2014 and 31 May 2015.
Mustafa was initially accused of racism for asking white men not to attend a students’ union meeting intended for ethnic minority and “non-binary” women.
She then became embroiled in a separate row, accused of using the hashtag #killallwhitemen on her Twitter account, which has since been deleted.
A Met police spokesman said in a statement: “A woman interviewed under caution regarding a complaint of racially motivated malicious communication made on a social media network has been summonsed to court.”
Mustafa is neither an employee of Goldsmiths nor a student, but an employee of the independent students’ union, elected by union members.
Mustafa remained in her position as welfare and diversity officer after a petition for a motion of no confidence fell short of the 3% of union members required to trigger a poll.
After the furore, Mustafa denied that her initial request for white men to stay away from a union meeting was racist or sexist, and said she had received rape and death threats.
WOW! So in other words, she doesn’t deny the FACT she said the racist or sexist comment, she denied that REQUESTING for the white men to stay away was racist or sexist. Really? So what was it then? What would YOU call it?! It’s NOT a surprise THIS diversity position is a UNION position. It also doesn’t surprise me that Mustafa will remain IN the position, because of a 3% vote of union members! Really?! How sick is that?! Only a union would vote to keep a person who makes racist and sexist comments about white men in a DIVERSITY position! Unreal! I guess if the union wants a real monster in the position, they certainly have one! What a liberal idiot who should have fired at the very least! Give me a break!
