A Follow-Up About Gordon Gee's Racism

I don't think I need to say anything else.  Representative Kaptur, a fellow Polish American, beautifully expressed everything I wanted to and couldn't.  On the House of Representative Floor.

And her Press Release yesterday.

If you would like to stand up with fellow Poles and make your voice heard that Gee's comment and prejudice will not be tolerated, please contact:

Katherine Eckstrand and tell her to put Gee's bigotry on the Board of Trustees agenda when it meets on Feb. 9. Her e-mail is: eckstrand.1@osu.edu
Phone: (614) 292-6359.

Gee’s boss, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Leslie Wexner at:
lawrence.10@osu.edu Or better yet, call him: (614) 292-6359

You can also e-mail President Gee at: gordon.gee@osu.edu 

Na razie...

Your blog was the first I heard about this. Thanks! After thinking it over for a few days, I had to rant on the subject on my Polish blog.

Great blog! Hi from Nantucket Island! the good news is that the origin of these jokes is...ignorance and fear. that's the old trick that the small but tyrannical minds use..."if you cannot defeat a nation more brilliant than your own start ridiculing them"
