The Catastrophic Consequences of a Derailment at UCS Commencement

Asna Tabassum was chosen as the USC valedictorian, a hijab-wearing daughter of Indian immigrants with impressive academic and extracurricular achievements. However, her graduation speaking slot was revoked after threats, leading to protests and controversy at USC. The decision has been criticized by faculty as a failure of leadership and intellectual cowardice. The university has faced backlash from various groups, including accusations of antisemitism and ignoring social media vetting. The situation escalated when protesters set up tents on campus, leading to arrests and canceled ceremonies. The university community remains divided, calling for a dialogue to address issues of racism, freedom of speech, and security concerns.
