UNC resolves anti-Semitism case with feds that grew out of rapper's performance

UNC-Chapel Hill has resolved a federal anti-Semitism case with the U.S. Department of Education that alleged the university discriminated against students of Jewish descent at a conference in March.

The complaint was filed in April following controversy over Palestinian rapper Tamer Nafar’s performance at the “Conflict over Gaza: People, Politics and Possibilities” conference. Video showed him performing an anti-Semitic song called “Mama, I Fell in Love with a Jew.”

U.S. Rep. George Holding, a Republican from Raleigh, called for a federal investigation into the Middle East conference co-sponsored by Duke University and UNC-Chapel Hill.

UNC did not admit to violating any laws but agreed to revise its policy on Prohibited Discrimination, Harassment and Related Misconduct, to include that policy in training and orientation sessions, to issue an anti-harassment statement and to hold a listening session next semester for students, faculty, staff and administrators to discuss concerns about harassment.

1. Good

It’s time these institutions stopped treating Anti-Semitism as though it doesn’t exist.

Gotta give credit where credit is due to Rep. Holding.
