Suspect continued. Sharon/SCOR speaks. Katrina Relief? Miers who?
So last week when I posted David Betts’ story on being, I missed a great letter by Riana Anderson, president of the NAACP- UM Chapter. She does a good job about raising the issue of reporting the event as student-centered, which it was not. Now of course, the question that then arises, what do you do about incidents between non-students and students? Do you crack down on non-students presence everywhere? I recently went to a local club (prior to the shooting) where they demanded my U of M id to enter, despite it being an open party.
On Tuesday, the Daily published a letter written by Sharon Lee, SCOR president,in conjunction with a number of APIA and graduate organizations on the U’s reaction to the recent alleged hate crimes. It’s a good read.
As the news of Katrina relief begins to slow from the media flourish, you’ll soon be seeing/hearing the effects of Bush and company “loosening” the Affirmative Action policies on hiring.
So Bush also nominated Miers, which was out of the blue for me, but there are some theories going around.
Lastly, if you haven’t checked it out, do check out Blackprof.com. They have good commentary and are featuring a set of guest commentators.
