The group met to discuss concerns and possible solutions regarding the controversial video posted to YouTube on Thursday, which called for the beating and lynching of black students on May 2 during a planned protest against student loan debt. “Today, I believe was the first step toward developing a foundation toward open discussions of social tensions we share on campus,” said Tolbert, a junior from Carbondale studying political science and international studies, “through the voices of a diverse group of students with higher administration.” Stettler said she was disappointed and heartbroken by the video. — April 25, 2016, Carbondale, Ill.
