All art is a kind of confession, more or less oblique. All artists, if they are to survive, are forced, at last, to tell the whole story; to vomit the anguish up.
I Love Nina Davuluri , first Indian-Amercian to be crowned Miss America!
She is just beautiful as fuck holy wow.
And then Affirmative Action was shot down…
Not only is Sydney Zink (an op-ed columnist for the Daily Northwestern who wrote a highly controversial article against affirmative action last week flooded with baseless claims) against race-based affirmative action, but so is the majority of the student population at Northwestern University - according to a survey poll located on the same webpage as the article.
Then, in an oh so timely fashion, NU alum and Board Member Ben Slivka (after whom a dorm is named) recently wrote to a current, minority, undergraduate student on Racism, Privilege and Discrimination in an interesting manner…I’ll let you be the judge there.
We ought to applaud Sydney Zink and Ben Slivka for their courageous stupidity in showing their asses. They have truly been far more productive than most by opening up apparently controversial conversations on postraciality that I thought we had already settled. It’s time to bring back the “Post-racial Northwestern” blog.
