That's like two tweets, by two people. I'm not sure this is even an issue. Two people don't make up the student population, numbered near or over 30,000.
If I tweeted about the USA it isn't what the USA thinks it's one man, me. Let's keep that in mind.

Beyond anything, I think its very important to understand where these students are coming from. Not to agree with the perspective, but to understand it in the overall context of this subject.
They obviously feel they have a legitimate grievance here, and that this is actually indicative of the battle they are fighting.
If they feel, as they stated, that they are somehow victimized in these Paris events, it should be obvious that they are programmed to see victimization to an exceedingly unhealthy degree. They even seek to find personal victimization in events they were not involved.
Its important for us all to pursue equality, but condoning and encouraging this victim behavior (as has been seen on this board, as well as many others), we are creating an unsolvable situation. One where equality is impossible to perceive even if it is achieved, due to indignation based almost solely on the inability to see things in any other way than as a permanent victim.
