On Tuesday, April 2, racism once again walked onto the soccer field.
About a month ago, Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook was told by two Utah Jazz fans to “get down on your knees like you used to.” A few weeks ago, English soccer players Danny Rose, and Callum Hudson-Odoi were subject to racist abuse from Montenegro fans while playing for England. And last week, Italian striker Moise Kean faced racism from opposing fans while playing for Juventus versus Cagliari.

Over the past year and a half, students have clearly expressed their desire to reform the Honor System. Beginning with the four referenda passed during the 2017 USG elections cycle, students have repeatedly called for increased transparency, improvements in communication practices, and changes to the elected composition of the members of the Honor Committee, among other things. Students have thoroughly engaged with administrators and faculty members on these topics in numerous forums since the University initially halted the implementation of the referenda’s proposed reforms in January 2018.
Between a halftime ceremony honoring members of the 1994 NCAA champion Princeton women’s lacrosse team and a postgame ceremony honoring the 2019 Princeton women’s lacrosse senior class, Saturday afternoon at Sherrerd Field was eventful. In the meantime, Princeton (9–3, 3–1 Ivy) found a way to edge out Harvard (6–7, 1–4), winning 14–12 in its final home game of the regular season.
I was not particularly surprised to hear that the University recently updated its policy regarding consensual relations between faculty and graduate students, though I was somewhat dismayed. The decision of the Office of the Dean of the Faculty to forbid all consensual relations between faculty (including instructors and lecturers) and graduate students — regardless of whether the employee and student in question have a supervisory or advisory relationship — is a step in the wrong direction. Certainly, the University is right to be diligent in its prohibition of romantic or sexual interaction between faculty members and their own graduate students.

Men’s lacrosse (5–6, 0–3 Ivy) defeated Siena College (5–5, 3–2 MAAC) 19–10 on Tuesday night in a game that saw Princeton’s junior attacker Michael Sowers score six goals and contribute five assists for a career-high 11 points. The win was a boost to the team’s overall record but doesn’t aid its playoff hopes — they are still winless in the Ivy League.
On Tuesday, April 9, the first day of Princeton Preview 2019, graffiti was found in Prospect Gardens. Three individual pieces of graffiti — “Title IX protects rapists” in two places and “Fuck Title IX” in one — were written in dark red ink on the ground of the Class of 1975 Walk.

The internet has yielded a golden age of public shaming and callout culture, and the past few weeks have exemplified this trend. After years of online backlash to its owner’s homophobic beliefs and donations to anti-LGBTQ+ organizations, Chick-fil-A was recently banned from opening a branch in the San Antonio International Airport. Multiple art museums such as the Guggenheim are now distancing themselves from the Sackler family due to their alleged profiting off of America’s opioid epidemic, and Representative Steve King has been eviscerated nonstop on Twitter and elsewhere for his blatantly racist comments concerning white supremacy.
On March 21 through March 23, Alex Jones hosted the “Save the First Amendment: Stop Big Tech Censorship 50-Hour Emergency Broadcast” on his website, Infowars, in response to Apple, Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter banning Jones and his associated accounts from their platforms. The tech companies say the ban was in an effort to cut down on misinformation campaigns as well as a response to Jones’s clearly violating user policies.

The Princeton Student Climate Initiative (PSCI) has placed a referendum calling for the University to reduce carbon emissions on the Undergraduate Student Government (USG) spring ballot this week.
