Personal blogs should be professional
I know that Alex Glaze writes a blog that is not part of The Towerlight.
However, his work outside of the realm of your publication is reflective of The Towerlight.
After Towson’s football loss on Saturday, Mr. Glaze posted a blog post, “Should Spadola Have Played?” targeting a Tweet he came across by a Lehigh football player.
Glaze accuses Ryan Spadola of using a “racial slur.”
Yet, a quick archive search of Mr. Glaze’s Twitter reveals 19 Tweets to him from his followers using the SAME term as a term of endearment, friendship and familiarity.
Mr. Glaze Tweeted back to these people in a friendly manner.
Why? Because he knows well that the word “nigga” is NOT a racial slur.
It is very irresponsible to post a blog on the Internet accusing someone of such a horrific thing … especially when the accuser himself has been OK with the use of “nigga” on his own social media page.
