violence against minorities. >> itch you want to engage with a scholar you believe your right to see them and engage with them is so strong that you don't care about the potential trauma or violence this could bring. it is a selfish idea of academic engagement. >> think i have the answer. you will not let us speak. that's terrible. >> mur rain's appearance did result in violence of another kind. when he was escorting murray out, they were attacked by a mob, including outside activists. she was left with of a concussion and whiplash. ironically, stan ge r was selected to mod rate the event because she was seen as a respected professor, with liberal credentials. >> i went back, reviewed the bell cover. prepared tough questions. never got to ask. in front of an audience that was listening. of a real group think, mob mentality. where people weren't reading and thinking for themselves, relying on other people to tell them what to think. >> and it isn't just middle bury. murray was shouted down at the universal of michigan this past fall as well.

debating the meaning of much of its language. >> i feel like the letter, remted a fundamental misunderstanding of safe places and value and importance in any setting. >> there is a real risk aversion on scam pulses. >> law student. eric wesson. >> once people enter the real world. >> i can assure you all people of color existeden a primarily white space know that the real world is not a safe space. >> and the war of words is continuing at middlebury. where students like, liz dunn and ray aaron say slt impact of the charles murray incident is still being felt. why its this a good thing. in your mind that these appropriate tests, are going forward. >> i think it is always a good thing to realize that we are actually able to challenge -- authority. and that we have a voice, place, ability to express that. what we mav to say and what we are experiencing is something important and we can change. up aought in the end i think the conversation turned into whether or not we support controversial
