Thank you for finally addressing an issue that I feel needed to be
brought forward here at this University! No one should be afraid to
discuss issues about race and the history of this country with race and the
school itself. The people who continually attack and confront a person
for their opinion on the basis, "That because you are white, and you were
brought up in a country with a history of abuse along racial lines, means
you can not participate in the debate due to your skin being white." is
We are all responsible for our own actions. Leadership in this area has
to be positive and lead by example. We need to come together on this
issue, and not divide up into little groups that dictate and preach
how things ought to be in this country and on this CAMPUS!!!
We can never forget our past, but can not progress forward if we
continually relive and use the past as our day-to-day weapon against
racism. These are the tools for people to divide us in our opinions, and
create the barrier of getting the job done.
As I have stated earlier on this issue with others on this net, people
who use the past as a weapon to shut other people out of the debate are
doing a great disservice for the movement as a whole!
Every person and opinion should help bring the education of this issue to
the fore-front of the debate. This is where we will learn the truth and
take away the power of the manipulators of the world on this issue!
