UCT Speaks On Love And Race Article
UCT Speaks On Love And Race Article

 The love and race article published on the campus newspaper was problematic, University of Cape Town said in a statement

“UCT respects the right of all to express themselves, and the right of a student newspaper, like Varsity (which has editorial independence), to print what it wants,” spokeswoman Pat Lucas said.

“(However), the article in the April 2, 2013 edition of Varsity newspaper, titled “Is love colour-blind?” is problematic in many instances.”

She said it was wrong for the newspaper to tittle he article “UCT vote on the most attractive race” while the survey was only conducted on 60 people.

She said the most worrying matter was the thinking behind the article.

“One would have hoped that a more informed, enlightened view would have guided those involved to understand the offensiveness of the question that was asked, namely: 'Which race is more attractive?',” she said.

The university appreciated that the piece had created discussion, even if it was sometimes offensive and uncomfortable.
