Howard University President Releases A Statement About Non-Students Walking Their Dogs On The Yard
Godforsaken gentrifiers be warned!
The president of Howard University has spoken, and he too doesn’t want your entitled mutts frolicking on The Yard.
As reported last week, campus students accused non-enrollee gentrifiers of bringing their dogs to campus and using up Howard’s yard for dog-walks and picnics. When students expressed outrage, one White man (now known as #GentrifyingGeorge) had the nerve to suggest the campus be moved in an interview with FOX 5.
When WUSA9 first covered the story, a Howard spokesperson said they didn’t hav a policy prohibiting dogs on campus.
However, on Friday, Howard University President Wayne A. I. Frederick put out a statement saying although the university doesn’t prohibit dogs, he would greatly appreciate it if pet owners didn’t bring their dogs.
“We can relate to the Nation wanting to visit and witness the Howard mystique. The institution has a tradition of opening our doors for everyone to observe the best that Howard University has to offer,” he wrote. “We recognize that service animals are a necessary aspect of modern-day life and we will accommodate them as needed,” BUT, he continued, “We appreciate pet owners respecting our campus by not bringing pets onto the private areas.”
Thank ya kindly!!
Now, we’ll wait and find out if the gentrifiers will take heed to the president’s message. Hopefully, the entitlement is put on chill mode.
