LETTER TO EDITOR Dear Editor, ! This letter concerns the discrimination that has been used to the whites advantages. I do not think it is very even-handed the opportunities that the whites get. The African Americans are as equal as the whites are. Bathrooms, water fountains, entering through the door and etc are seperated by race wich to me is not fair. If African American’s were alowed to do what the whites do the United States would be a less contriversal world without slavery. Therefore I believe that African American’s should get equal rights as the whites do.
Advice Collum Hello my name is Luke. I am seeking some advice on a critical problem. I am at a boarding school called Sacred Heart. I am having a hard time adapting to this diﬀerent enviroment where there are strange people who speak English and not E s k i m o . T h e c af e te r i a i s s p l i t between the Eskimos and the Indians like it is some sort of war. It is a really religous Catholic school so there are Nuns, Priests, etc. This is not the way I grew up and they don’t speak my native language. There is alot of discrimination between the Indians and the Eskimos on how they have their seperate privilages. There is this one boy named Amiq and he is a real smart-alec who bullies kids for their background. My question to you is, should I leave Sacred Heart School and go home where I understand the flow of things? --Luke Dear Luke, I understand the position you are in and the emotions you are feeling. I would not reccomend to run away from the problem. I promise everything will make its way out. The bully Alec is not a problem, just try to stay out of his way and do not let him put your self-esteem down. The situation you are in is a learning expierience. You need to learn how to cooperate with others whether or not they are your skin color. My advice to you is to stay in school and try to fit in with the other Eskimo’s. --Edior Sadie

This tragic moment has happened to many African American boys
