Michigan University has announced that it has sent out a campus-wide email telling students not to wear blackface in the face of black students at their college.
The email comes after several high-profile high-school basketball players and celebrities, including actor and former presidential candidate Donald Trump, took to Twitter to discuss the “blackface” controversy at Michigan, which is one of the country’s most elite schools.
Michigan has one of America’s largest black populations and is home to many top universities.
The letter to students says: “We understand the frustration and frustration we have been experiencing over the past few weeks regarding the recent controversy surrounding blackface at Michigan University, and we understand that some may not agree with us on all of the details.
But this is about more than just the controversy.
We believe in equality and we want to do everything we can to support our black and female students.”
The letter also says: There is a lot of hurt and anger in the black community regarding this situation, which we are very much aware of.
But the university is also focused on bringing the best education for our students and we are committed to being inclusive.
The university is committed to protecting the rights of all our students.
It is important that we acknowledge our past mistakes and that we understand how we made them.
We are committed and confident that the changes we have made over the last year will continue to bring greater opportunity and equity to our students.
“On Saturday, Trump told CNN that he was offended by the idea of a blackface-themed Halloween costume.”
So you know, I’m just not interested. “
If you look at some of the things that were said about me when I was younger, and I’m not even in that age bracket anymore, and you take a look at a lot in the media about Donald Trump and things like that, he’s a racist, he has no place in our society.
So you know, I’m just not interested.
And it’s just sad.”
On Friday, President Barack Obama addressed the issue at a Black History Month event, saying he believed that the issue of blackface was “not a cultural issue, it is a moral issue.”
The White House did not respond to a request for comment.
