Determining how high an individual sets their moral standards to oneself really comes to the surface when you are a freshman in college living on your own for the first time. Without parental guidance, all of the actions you do during your time attending College reflect on what kind of person you are. Knowing and choosing the difference between right and wrong separates those who have grown since high school and those who remain immature. The next unethical incident that occurred at PC during my here happened early on in my second semester of sophomore year where three black students reported beer bottles being thrown at them and claimed that they were being targeted after being denied entry into an off campus party. The United States government describes racial/color discrimination as, “Treating someone unfavorable because he/she is of a certain race or because of personal characteristics associated with race such as hair texture, skin color, or certain facial features” (U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission). There are numerous amounts of moral values that are thought to be universal throughout the campus of PC and racial discrimination is far from being considered ethical. After the investigation went underway, Jim Vincent and the rest of Providence NAACP Branch got involved and wanted to put an end completely to any form of racism. Professor Julia Jordan-Zachary, Director of Black Studies at PC, spoke with GoLocal Providence about the incident and said, “If we’re now ‘investigating” what happened, historically speaking investigation at PC of racial biases don’t go well. Nothing happens. There’s a deep history. Talk to alumni, this isn’t new” (GoLocal Providence). The professor went on to say that a couple of years ago students were called, “N*****” on campus and nothing happened because the kids who supposedly said this foul language apparently said something else. The investigation appeared to be thorough, but the outcome of the off-campus incident showed no progress as there was not enough concrete factual evidence to pin point the main culprits and PC failed yet again to give any serious sanctions to anyone. In the 2017-2018 PC Student Handbook, there is a section devoted to Anti-Harassment
