Mut and Tom are talking about the Patriots as football season is upon us. They talk about Jamie Collins and the Patriots defense, Bill Belichick and Sean Payton, and of course Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo.

I never thought I’d see a man who squandered more of his childhood watching Warner Brothers cartoons, but I know when I’ve met my match. Reincarnated Mel Blanc here is so spot on with these voices, he might actually get me to listen to the safety instructions for once. Because trust me, I never pay attention. If I’m ever the one sitting in the leg room seats and therefore it’s my job to work the emergency exit door, it’ll be “Th-th-th-that’s all, folks.”

Boston MagazineIn a recent email to incoming students, RAs at UMass Amhert’s Sycamore Hall said that not only are Harambe jokes written on whiteboards an attack on the school’s African American students, but they could constitute a Title IX violation as well.

“We understand that social media has been popularizing Harambe in some crude ways, which may appear as funny to groups of people,” the RAs wrote. “However, these comments are not only derogatory, but also micro-aggressions to some UMass Students.” …

The [floor] for African American students is the “Harambe” floor, after the Swahili word that means the “point where people pull together.” …

[T]he email says. “The floor has been in existence for many years, so any negative remarks regarding ‘Harambe’ will be seen as a direct attack to our campus’s [sic] African-American community.” …

The RAs suggested that a popular iteration of the meme, “Dicks out for Harambe,” could constitute a violation of federal Title IX guidelines. …

UMass Amherst said that, “as an institution that values free speech and the exchange of ideas,” the school has not banned any jokes or references to Harambe.

Well this appears to clear this up. Over the course of the week, the Internet freaked out by the news that UMass had banned all Harambe jokes as racially insensitive micro-aggressions and somehow sexist.

But the truth is a lot less sexy. It was just a couple of RAs warning people to watch their step and not confuse the real, sincere mourning for the late, great citizen of Cincinnati with something that could be taken as going all racist after the Sycamore Hall floor of the same name.

And not only is the school telling students that the way they mourn Harambe is between them and their gods, that they don’t have a problem with the well-intentioned “Dicks Out for Harambe” movement. Unless, one assumes, actual dicks aren’t actually out.

So well done, UMass. Stick tap to you for not being the bastion of insane over-thinking and oppressive political correctness we thought you were for a second there. Rational thinking has won the day. Cooler heads have prevailed. And now those of us who choose to honor that beloved creature aren’t ashamed to have you as our state university.
