Title

"U.S. Blacks Make Legitimate Commands"-January 29, 1988, page 3, The Occidental

Description

This is a response to a prior article in which another student, George O'Keefe, expressed some resentment towards black students who seem to segregate themselves and not integrate into the white community. Moore counters this argument by suggesting that “any black student who comes to Oxy has integrated into and learned far more about white society than most whites will ever learn about or integrate into black society.”

Analysis/Reflection

I think that this letter is indicative of a certain tension that existed on campus at this time. It is a good representation of real conversations happening amongst the student body.
