Dear Tuks - Get REAL

Dear Tuks
I am writing an open letter to you to please clarify what actions have been taken against the two students who have been found to have brought the University into disrepute. Wait, before you let us know what exactly these disciplinary measures are... let's back up a second. 
Disrepute you say? I dare say that this finding on behalf of the university is rather ridiculous. Just looking at the commentary on the articles on News24 shows that you have a skewed view. The biggest mistake the university made was going into the media with this story. You brought the disrepute upon yourselves with allowing this story into the mainstream media. These two students were merely having fun and I personally think that you have over-reached the boundaries of university business and jurisdiction. There is absolutely no intent on the behalf of these students to offend I'm sure, I think merely an intent to have a laugh and have some fun. 
I would suggest maybe instituting a compulsory first year course on Race to all your students to teach them what real racism is and not to look for racism in every single action by any student.
I would not be surprised if a lawsuit comes of this... Be very very careful what precedents you set regarding these two students as you may actually be indicting yourself to be a racist institution. And you won't want that now would you? 
Regards Willem
