Anonymous racist posts have littered Ed Discussion’s discussion board for Statistical Methods and Applications (STAT 22000) at the University of Chicago, and the seeming lack of consequences for the perpetrator(s) has some students on edge.
The anonymous messager(s) allegedly used Google Translate to write a series of Chinese characters followed by a block of broken English text. The fragmented language, which seems to imitate a Chinese accent in a mocking manner, appears to be an attack on the teaching assistants for the course—some of whom are Chinese international students who speak English as a second language.
An assistant instructional professor for STAT 22000 issued students a warning implying that the offender(s) would be neither reprimanded nor punished unless they post another message of this nature:
Several members of the university community want more to be done. A student in the class expressed to the Chicago Thinker that “the behavior is extremely disrespectful, and I believe the student(s) should face more severe consequences.” Moreover, a group of Chinese students familiar with the situation intimated that the lack of action is an act of blatant disrespect toward the Chinese community at the university.
Under the university’s Discrimination and Discriminatory Harassment guidelines, “such expression will not constitute harassment unless it is targeted at a specific person or persons, is abusive, and serves no bona fide academic purpose.”
On February 13, the professor for the class issued a statement sharing that she filed a report with the university. As of the time of this update, the university has not publicly addressed the incident.
The Chicago Thinker has reached out to UChicago for comment and has not yet received a response. This article will be updated as new developments arise.

The reality is that over 95% of anti Asian hate physical attacks in the Bay Area, NYC are committed by criminals who are Black A American. Of course not all Blacks are criminals and not all criminals R Black.
The Mainstream media , woke, Lib Leftist, NAACP, ADL, BLM and sadly the Lib Democrat Asian American elites cover up these anti Asian hate crime attacks or else they blame them on ex President Trump and MAGA Trump supporters for somehow having supernatural evil powers to create a “climate of anti Asian hate”.
I encourage honest Asian students here at U Chicago to get honest news, facts about violent crime, political racial violence in the USA, Chicago. We are sadly going through a cultural revolution, CRT similar to the one Maoist China suffered in 1965 only with race replacing class for motivation for political violence, educational and media brainwashing. Etc.
