I am very proud to be black. 1 am
proud to have had the opportunity to be
the editor of a black newspaper on a
predominantly white campus. Most of all,
I am proud that on May 8th, I can look
back and say, “It’s been a real struggle,
and I'm so glad I didn't give up.”
The 1987-88 school year has been a
mixture of change, excitement, disap
pointment, and success for the black stu
dent community at UNC. We as black
students must remember that our future
is what we make of it. Our generation has
had more open doors for opportunity than
any generation before us. No one is go
ing to stand at that door and lead you in.
Go ahead, be brave, accept the challenges,
and ask God to give you strength to en
dure whatever is on the other side.
Racism is prevalent everywhere, not
just on this campus, but in every corner
of life. However, we must not use racism
as a crutch for our own slackness. Don't
say you can’t “get ahead" because “They
are too prejudiced,’’ when you, yourself,
haven’t even tried. Racism is real, but it
is no excuse. It should make blacks fight
harder, not take a back seat. If we don't
watch out, the black race will destroy
itself and everything that blacks have
fought for all these years, because we are
constantly destroying each other.
I would like to thank all of the Black
Ink staff for an outstanding job. Without
your dependability and concern for the
Black Ink, it would not have been a suc
cess. I hope that you will continue this
tradition in the years to come. 1 would also
like to thank you, the readers, for your
advice, encouragement, and support.

I is oxygen, necessary for the body and its
organs to work properly. A person with
sickle cell anemia, the most serious of all
sickle cell diseases, has half as many red
blood cells as someone else. This accounts
for a victim’s constant fatigue and inability
to stay active.

months of school last year because she

But Duckett claims that she won’t let
the disease get her down. In fact, she says
someday she plans to have children and
continue on with her life.
“There are tests now to determine
whether your baby has the sickle cell
trait,’’ she said. “I just don’t want them
to go through what I'm going through.”
One out of every ten Black
Americans is a carrier of the sickle cell
trait. But the hope for a future free of

some cases, is dismal and an ultimate cure

Dr. Orringer. “Our ability to cure the
