This is very bad. College newspapers are not mere training grounds for young journalists. They are a critical part of the fabric of journalism. Students can scrutinize their own colleges in ways outsiders like me just cannot. Their work matters.

Weird how there wouldn’t be many “sympathetic” white people in a story about white people subjugating and dehumanizing black people.

I am extremely sensitive to AC so my thermostat already is set higher than what’s comfortable for most people. But 78-85 is absurd
