Ohio University officials canceled Greek Week after students painted a Trump wall on an area designated for graffiti.
Because border security is VERY OFFENSIVE.

The Post Athens reported:

Several events for Ohio University’s Greek Week, an annual, weeklong event focused on philanthropy, have been canceled after some Sorority and Fraternity Life members painted “Build the Wall” on an area typically designated for graffiti last week.

The Greek Week events, set to take place between April 11 and 18, were amended after unnamed members of Sorority and Fraternity Life painted the graffiti wall by Bentley Hall, including the phrase “Build the Wall,” according to a letter sent Sunday to sororities and fraternities.

The phrase has been a part of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s campaign to construct a wall between the United States and Mexico to discourage immigration from South and Central American countries.

The letter was addressed to the “OU Sorority and Fraternity Life community and supporters,” and was signed by the Interfraternity Council, Multicultural Greek Council, National Pan-Hellenic Council and the Women’s Panhellenic Association.

“This phrase is offensive and hurtful to many individuals as it is directly tied to the Hispanic/Latino/a community, makes them feel marginalized, and the message was interpreted that they do not belong at Ohio University,” the letter stated.

The Hispanic students were allowed to paint over the Trump graffiti.
