The last thing the UP Community needs right now is a thoughtless, hasty generalization. And today, it comes in the form of an editorial cartoon:

Photo taken from
(The New Oblation: UP’s Culture of Violence)

Sure, some of you will say we deserve it. Some of you will even say it’s true. And fine, I agree with you. Our culture of violence has really defined our university. The endless hazing, frat wars and deaths in UP has risen in gigantic proportions.

But please, not at a time like this. We’re talking about a very sensitive matter. Somebody has died. And to desecrate the Oblation like that, implying the whole university and its student has turned into grim reapers looking for their next victim is a very insensitive assault on us Isko’s and Iska’s.

Personally, when I showed this cartoon to my friends, we were all saddened. Maybe because it’s true? Sure. But the portrayal of UP through a very hasty generalization is very far from the truth. Not all students in UP espouse violence. Not all are compelled to join frats. Not all agree to hazing, frat wars, or fraternities for that matter. How about those people? How about those who went to UP to study, to just study?

What will this imply to parents around the country? That we not only breed destabilizers, according to that piece of garbage in the DOJ, but killers too?

It’s so sad. This sends a foul message to its readers about the university. And we only have two entities to blame: the publication, and the fraternities responsible for this.

Let’s all fight to bring back UP to the glory it once had. STOP FRAT VIOLENCE! JUSTICE FOR CRIS!
