Equality Riders facing new and different challenges
I was informed I should go check out Safelove.org to see what they're doing, and its pretty much a load of crap, honestly. Students Against False Equality (thus the name SAFE) is targeting the schools being visited on the ride this year... I'm not sure what to say about them, other than you should look at the website yourself.
I know the Riders are more than ready to deal with this type of hate propaganda and feel confident that the majority of students, especially on my campus, would be more interested in dialogue, rather than 'combatting' SF with messages of hate. The fact that safelove calls themselves a christian organization, yet their message is so far from that of Christ, one of Love, make me sick. Its people like those that make up safelove that give Christians a bad image. The way I see it, they feel that the ER's past efforts have actually made a difference, and that scares them. It will be interesting to see what role, if any, safelove plays in the visit to MC. They have a daily blog, by the way... you should see the ridiculous entries already been made...
And by the way, they're watching the SF forums (they took a direct quote from the 'why historically black colleges?' thread and used it to name Jarett Lucas by name in yesterdays blog)... so be sure you say hello.
