 Student files bias complaint against dorm roommate for watching Ben Shapiro video

Michigan State incident prompted administrator to allow for a room change

One evening last September, a Michigan State University student awoke from his nap to see his roommate sitting at his computer. There was a video playing, and the student realized his roommate was watching a video of conservative commentator Ben Shapiro.

The newly awoken student then took to his own computer to file a complaint with the administration’s bias reporting system against his roommate for watching the Shapiro video.

“Ben Shapiro is known for his inflammatory speech that criticizes and attacks the African American community,” the student wrote in his report against his roommate. “I thought hate had no place on MSU’s campus yet MSU has roomed me with someone who supports hate speach [sic].”

...  Through the bias reporting system, the administration allows anonymous students and faculty to report incidents, no matter how private, to the university for investigation and adjudication.

The 114 pages of documents provided to The College Fix shows a campus where minor sleights, overheard conversations and editorial cartoons become fodder for students and faculty to report one another.

As was the case with the Shapiro video, it appears students may not even be able to watch a political video in the privacy of their own dorm room without being written up.

Professors are similarly not free from constant surveillance by campus community members.  ...
