WESTWOOD — EMTs rushed second-year sociology major and student activist Emma Schwartz to UCLA’s Ronald Reagan Medical Center following her collapse midway through a heated debate with a classmate. “We were arguing about whether or not the Washington Redskins should change their name to something less offensive, and when he said he didn’t think the name was problematic, I immediately felt unsafe — his words made me tremble out of profuse disagreement as my limbs went numb, then there was darkness,” said a visibly shaken Schwartz after she regained consciousness in the hospital. “People just don’t understand how much their words can hurt — an opinion can be lethal if it’s offensive enough.” At press time, Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom was speaking live on Facebook about legislation he is introducing to combat “bad opinions” to ensure that students can attend their classes without fearing for their safety.
