First of all we'd like to say that we stand in support of Ro, her personal decisions, and her capability as leader of The Cultural Center. Parker has a keen ability to facilitate workshops, and promote events that encourage understanding of diverse cultures, including but not limited to race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation and gender identity. What we have been talking about recently has been mostly based around racial issues. Parker's experience and competence as an educator to discuss racial identity development have been overlooked. Many people have skipped ahead to being offended about a teaching tool she had posted on her personal Facebook page.
...

If we are going to blame the VP and president of ASBSU for helping perpetrate hate mail then the diversity center coordinator Ro Parker bears some of that blame as well for the lack of judgment to post that picture on her Facebook page. All the letters to the editor essentially have pilloried the ASBSU Executive without thinking any farther then those who flat out call Ro a racist for her actions.
...
But according to Ro, offense is determined by the viewer, not by intent. Therefore all of this arguments defending her actions are disingenuous.

But this scent had a most peculiar origin, as the odious hate spewed from the coordinator of Boise State's Cultural Center, Ro Parker, who posted an image for her Facebook profile picture that offended many on Boise State's campus:
...
The sensible thing would be for [Ro] Parker to resign over this incident, to maintain the integrity of the Cultural Center," she said.
...
Ro Parker is an employee of the state of Idaho and the mere action of posting this bigoted picture on her Facebook profile warrants immediate removal from her post as coordinator for the Cultural Center.
Diversity and tolerance mean inclusion for all, not just for those groups the Cultural Center deems worthy of protection. Right?
Or, does diversity and tolerance mean the censorship of white boys, as Ro Parker of Boise State seems to suggest?
...
As a Boise State Alumni and Idaho resident for the last 50 plus years I am shocked at the lack of interest taken by Boise State University about the outrageous behavior and bigoted remarks of Ro Parker. This is especially disconcerting considering her position as head of the Cultural Center at BSU.
...
Sent directly to Ms. Parker, the university president, and other departments.
...
Parker's post completely contradicts that, it is in fact spreading intolerance and hate.
