“Expecting an institution that has a long-standing systemic means of re-victimizing victims of sexual assault to care about exploiting race for public relations is the right thing to do, but unrealistic.” the Integrity Report on the Arizona State University Police Department
This is a lesson for Michael Crow to leave public relations to professionals. This time he was in such a hurry to piggy back on all the media attention of the executive order banning travel from 7 countries, that he made a complete ass of the university by labeling Arab Americans, graduates of the university, as foreigners. By rushing to exploit the racial and religious tensions of this issue for university public relations, Michael Crow made the classic bigot error of assuming Muslims are non-American. Unbelievable, he should be ashamed of himself.
Expecting an institution that has a long-standing systemic means of re-victimizing victims of sexual assault to care about exploiting race for public relations is the right thing to do, but unrealistic. Nonetheless we are glad others are noticing the troubled management model of Arizona State University. Take a look at how Arizona State University president Michael Crow was in such a hurry to take advantage of a public relations opportunity, but exposed bigotry in the failed attempt.
