A Justification For Allocation
In last week’s DTH article, “Congress not likely Jo increase
funding u> student groups,” Michael Wilkins gave an accurate
report of the of the 1991-1992 Black Student Movwnent budget
request However, he neglected to inform the DTH readership of ex
actly how many groups are funded through the BSM.
The BSM is made up of the Opeyo! Dancers, the BSM Gospel
Choir, the Ebony Readors/Onyx Theater, the Special Projects Co*n-
mittee and Black Ink.
All these groups need funding to provide the sCTviccs they have
been providing to blacksoideots—and the UNC community—for
the past 23 years. In these past years, these groups have expanded
and divennried, thus requiring more funding.
Black Ink is now a weekly (firom bi-wedkly) piri>licaiion. The
1991-1992 Blade Iidc budget tequest it $32,100. almost half the
toad 1991*1992 BSM bedgetre^iesLWefiBd this request is not at
an umeaaonable. at it it consistent with the past budgets (tf odier
canpus poMicationa. la additian to this. Black Ink has proposed to
raise $6,000through advertising; and odier fundraising efforts, thus
btingmg the actnal amount requested from Student Qngress to
$26,100. Wednesday’s aiticie did not reflect that informatioa.
We also want to stress that /nA: is in dire need for a fund
increase. Last year, we were allocated an>roximaieIy $5,000 for the
complete running of Black Ink. This is mwe than $^,000 less than
the amount of money Student Congress allocated to a similar
publk»tion. whose rale tfpuUishing is equal to ours. Although we
have been able tostrctch this HKHiey by spending our own funds and
soliciting advertising and help other organizations, this will
not be possible next year. Even with our careful budgeting and
fhigality, we are extremely close to being out of funds, whk:h would
mean a possible shutdown rf our publicati(m for 1990-1991 year.
We feel Otal Black Ink, and the Black Student Movement, plays
a crucial role in the UNC ctmununity. If the budget of any campus
organization featuring a weddy publication, a dance group, a
theater group, a choral group and an administration that jMtjgrams
for more than 800 people were added together, one would find their
budget request to be comparable to that of the Black Student Move

Much of Marriott’s marginal success can be contributed to its close monitoring of
student opinion. Every semestCT, Carolina Dining Services distributes surveys, and two
weeks ago, they sponsored group discussions that allowed participants a chance to air
their opinions on campus dining.

The disproportionate number of minority health practitioners i^>pears to have a
negative effect on the overall health and well-being of pet^le of coIot diroughout the
United States. Previously published reports such as former U.S. Secretary of Health and
Human Services Margaret Heckler’s report. Task Force on Black and Minority Health,
point to the disparity that exists in the health status of whites compared to blacks and other
people of color in AmerKa.

It is clear that, despite what a majority of the white populatitm believes, no race or
nationality has a monopoly on patriotism. We can safely say that many African-
Americans chose military service because they wish to serve their country like their
counterparts of all races. But this fails to explain the disproportionate concentration of
African-Americans in the military.

This year in addition to candidate elections, there will be a referendum for a student
fee increase that would create a coordinator’s position for a program that is unquestiona
bly mindful of, and responsive, to University students. That program is a.p.p.l.e.s.
(allowing people to plan learning experiences in service).
