Yes, 1 know that everyone is now as sick and tired of
budget cuts as they were about the Student Body and Black
Student Movement elections last spring, but it's my turn to
get two cents in.
Budget cuts and their effects on students seem, in
general, like an issue that concerns ev'eryone on campus
Co no way do I mean to be patronizing, haughty, or
better than anyone else, it's just that African-Americans as
a whole at UNC aren’t doing their fair share when it comes
to this problem (hardly any African-Americans showed up
at any of the “Save UNC Day” events). What kind of
message does this send to university administrators?
The space that I have to make my point in is not nearly
enough for me to fully express myself, but it seems like HI
tiave to forego ali of the elaboration and get right to my
point Budget cuts aren’t Just a “white man’s" problem. All
students alike are harmed by these cute. All students alike
should come out in force to make their voice known,
Afnc^-Amertcan or not. We, now at. UtVC^ vi^on’t be hurt as
’$$, those $oon to enter. If we, as African-Americans,
don’t fight these cuts now, what will we leave to our
brothers and sisters? What will we leave to our chOdren?-
