At least according to Santa Clara University. Surely, they mean like someone beating someone up due to race or trying to injure/kill (etc.) someone right? Apparently not, at least not according to their own site which includes speech or acts (acts could mean a number of things, from actual 911 calling stuff to merely flipping the bird, they don't specify).

What is a Bias Incident?

Santa Clara University defines a bias incident as a speech, act, or harassing action that targets, threatens, or attacks an individual or group because of their actual or perceived race, color, national origin, ethnicity, religious affiliation, sex, gender identity, disability, or sexual orientation.

Ways to report a bias incident:

If the bias incident is in progress or just occurred: ALWAYS CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY

I hope the students at Santa Clara University are smarter then their admins because this is getting ridiculous. Maybe after a few students get fined for misusing 911, they'll change it...I kid, what will probably happen is Santa Clara emergency response will get called racists and bigots and don't care about <insert groups here> because they wouldn't respond to someone saying mean things.

Utterly ridiculous. 911 is supposed to be for emergencies.
