Coronavirus is Not an Excuse for Discrimination

As SMC’s Superintendent/President Dr. Kathryn E. Jeffery reminded us in a March 6 memo, this college is committed to inclusivity and diversity, and SMC prohibits unlawful discrimination and harassment in any arena of college life. The fear and panic around the coronavirus have led to a spike in xenophobic, racist and discriminatory behavior, especially against individuals of Asian descent.

According to the Center for Diseases Control & Prevention (CDC), diseases can make anyone sick regardless of their race or ethnicity. This means those in the SMC community who are of Asian descent are not more likely to get COVID 19.

Remember: There is no excuse for racism.
