Matt Mixer of Berry College in Rome was placed on leave after speaking out against BLM. Berry College placed the area coordinator on administrative leave after exchanging views with other Black Lives Matter organizations that are not necessarily part of the movement, according to Viking Fusion, a student news website.
Berry parishioners are keeping up the pressure on the administration to remove them, she said. Matt Mixer, area coordinator for residential life at Berry College, posted a series of “Ask Me Anything” posts on his Instagram page a week ago. He argued that the organization Black Lives Matter contradicts the founding values of the United States and that there is no systematic racism. In one of his posts, he encouraged readers to make a speech on the BLM website and pointing out that the BLM has made it clear that its Marxist agenda is more radical and destructive than most people think.
Another critical Twitter user, a Berry student, posted screenshots of what she said on Instagram Stories was Mixer’s answers to submitted questions. Her feed contained several retweets from others who accused her and others of insensitivity during the incident. She deleted her account on Wednesday afternoon after College Fix alerted her to it.
The College Fix asked for a copy of Berry’s social media guidelines, which do not appear to be available on its website. It also asked to be reminded by Kozelle that the policy was not privileged information, but Kozelle did not respond. The Twitter user who posted screenshots of Mixer’s Instagram posts also deleted her account.
Several stories were uploaded in which the idea was worked out that short question-and-answer sessions were posted on Instagram Stories by Matt Mixer, Area Coordinator of Residence Life.
