HU Elections Result in New Student Leaders BY CAMILLE AUGUSTIN Staff Writer The BisonWeb student election polls closed at 10 p.m. However, the tension was thick inside Blackburn Center’s game room until 11:21 p.m. struck. As Jay-Z’s song “On To The Next One” finished playing, it was on to the next batch of students who will take their respective positions in the fall. The general elections commissioner held white papers with black wording as he took the microphone to announce the results to the silent crowd. For the Howard University Student Association (HUSA), Brandon Harris and William Roberts will serve as HUSA’s 50th administration president and vice president, respectively. Marcus Ware will serve as graduate trustee and Corey Briscoe will serve as undergraduate trustee. “It is not so much a victory for me as much as it is for the university,” said Briscoe after an early start of campaigning since 8 a.m. “It was the constituents working together and creating synergy.” The moment that many students were waiting for was announced. The executive board that will serve for the fall in the College of Arts and Sciences (COAS) is Justin Thomas, Erin Rigsby, Kenneth Boyd and Andrew Hairston serving as executive president, executive vice president, executive treasurer and executive secretary, respectively. “I know now that I have hard work ahead of me and I am ready to take on that challenge,” Thomas said. The Undergraduate Student Assembly representatives are James Alexander,

Briana Carter, Erin Keith, Brittany House, Oyetewa Oyerinde, Kevon Paynter and Lindsay Robinson. For the School of Business, Kyle Hutton, Derrien Hinton, Moriah Thomas, and Allura Harris will serve as executive president, executive vice president, executive treasurer and executive secretary, respectively. UGSA representatives are Aric Adams, Kenneth Burnett, and Derak Carrington. “I am just excited to have my first council meeting next Monday and just getting ready to work with the team and be consistent,” Hutton said. For the School of Communications, Brittney Butts, Derell Bonner, Alyssa McLendon and Victoria Fortune will serve as executive president, executive vice president, executive treasurer and executive secretary, respectively. “I don’t even have the words to express this feeling,” Butts said. “It is just an awesome, awesome feeling and this election really made the School of Communications something to watch.” UGSA representatives are Sierra Wallace, Brittney Jacobs

Xerox Canada CEO to Visit HU BY RILEY WILSON Staff Writer Chairman, President, and CEO of Xerox Canada, Kevin M. Warren, will be visiting Howard’s campus Thursday. Appointed in December 2007, Warren is one of a few African-American CEO’s today. As part of the School of Business’ Executive Lecture Series, he will be speaking with faculty, staff, and students in an open forum. Also, a select group of students from the SOB Executive Leadership Honors Program and Team Leader Organization will have a private session with the chairman during his visit. Leea Allen, a Howard Alumna, reminisces on her experience with CEO day in the SOB. “I thought that it was great that we could have such influential people come to our school and speak,” Allen said. “When I was in the (SOB), it was different, because we always saw many of the same types of companies with little to no minority representation.” Allen, who is currently working for Target Corporation full-time, said that this particular CEO Day should be very beneficial to the students. “Its really good that a black CEO is coming to campus—now you see someone that looks like you. It’s

and Victoria McDonald. A d a m Florez will serve as the College of Engineering, Architecture and Computer S c i e n c e s ( C E A C S ) executive president. Teron Stocks will serve as UGSA representative for the School of Education. However, it was mentioned that grievances were filed but are still pending with the General Elections Commission. These grievances may or may not affect the outcome of the elections.

motivating.” For 15 years, the School of Business has been spearheading the program—focusing on establishing and maintaining strong relations between various organizations and Howard University, yet alone the School of Business. Previous speakers of the lecture series include the Honorable Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, President of the Republic of Liberia who came last semester and Ms. Lori Greeley, CEO of Victoria’s Secret. The program is free to the public and will be held in the School of Business auditorium at 11a.m.

HBCUs Draft Agenda for Enhancing Our Communities An upcoming leadership summit inspires students to reach communities BY CAMILLE AUGUSTIN Staff Writer Howard University will host the Inaugural Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Leadership Summit entitled “Remembering Our Past to Shape Our Future.” The summit will take place from Thursday through Sunday. The summit will serve as a place for students from different HBCUs to draft an agenda that will enhance the communities and confront issues that African Americans face today through leadership. HBCU student leaders, black student unions and student leaders across Howard University’s campus are among the prestigious guests. An estimate of 10 to 15 schools will be in attendance. Among those are Morgan State University, Clark Atlanta

University and Tuskegee University. “This summit will give HBCUs across the nation the opportunity to come to the premier HBCU, Howard University, and build an alliance to progress HBCUs in this nation,” said Shavonne Collins, collegiate alliance coordinator for the Howard University Student Association (HUSA) and coordinator of this year’s summit. Student leaders will engage in various workshops and learn about leadership development. They will also learn the importance of playing a role in social justice, said Collins. An evening reception will be held in association with the Office of the President and various functions will be held around Howard’s campus. Collins said Howard is progressing, but it is also important to utilize leadership skills in the community as well. “This is an important event, because we will be able to reach out to our fellow students and build alliances with student leaders across the nation so

we can effectively change our communities,” Collins said. Senior finance major Anesu Nyamuda said that leadership is very important in today’s communities. “Sometimes people want change, but they need someone to help point out how to approach bringing about that change,” Nyamuda said. “Some people have a lot of potential, but sometimes they just need someone to guide them.” Nyamuda said leadership brings out the best in a person and the changes that are made can benefit a collective unit or a team. Bryan Smart, HUSA executive president, said that he wants the summit to provide professional skills to students. “Howard University is the best place to host this event because it is the Mecca,” Smart said. “We want to inspire students to become prominent leaders in their institutions and communities.” Smart said Howard will “put ourselves at the forefront of academia leadership,” by participating in this leadership summit.

The CEO of Xerox Canada will visit the School of Business Thursday.

The 1992 Men’s Olympic team has been referred to as possibly the greatest collection of basketball talent ever assembled on one team. The team consisted of players who are now in the James Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame and 10 of the 12 players were named to the NBA’s 50th Anniversary All-Time Team. The core of the team consisted of Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Karl Malone, Patrick Ewing and Charles Barkley. They went on to go undefeated, winning by an average of 43.8 points throughout the Olympic tournament, to win the gold.

Chile Takes Interesting Stance on Foreign Aid In the early hours of Sunday morning, a massive 8.8 magnitude earthquake rocked the nation of Chile, resulting in a climbing death toll of 795 people and a tsunami watch for roughly 50 countries and territories from New Zealand to Japan. It’s the second devastating earthquake to occur this year (the first being the 7.0 magnitude quake that devastated Haiti in January). Interestingly enough, in the immediate aftermath of the quake, Chile decided to reject aid from other countries in dealing with the damage, unlike Haiti, who directly implored other nations to assist during their time of crisis. The International Federation of Red Cross and other international assistance organizations were poised for action, ready to lend their emergency assistance to what was undoubtedly an emergency. To their amazement, (and the amaze-

ment of the rest of the global community), Chile declined immediate assistance, deciding they had the ability to internally handle the devastation. After a little over 24

Our View:

Perspective Bourgeoisie, Broke & Black As a second year student at Howard, I go through an emotional and intellectual amusement park on a daily basis. Upon coming to Howard University, I discovered more racist thoughts within myself than I had ever experienced. I always considered myself a culturally wellrounded individual. Two of my closest childhood friends were Filipino and Egyptian, my babysitter was PuertoRican and my family is full of mutts. I came to Howard to surround myself with the many variations of what once was the most dominant groups of colored people, hoping to bask in an abyss of intelligence. The longer I stay here, the more exposed to ignorance and racism I feel than I ever did at home. Gentrification at Howard is a scary thought, but that doesn’t mean we should treat our non-black students the way we came to Howard to avoid being treated at a predominantly white institution. I found it funny that people were upset that Miss Hampton is white and offended to find that race is still an issue in the Miss America Pageant. If Harvard, Yale, or Princeton had a Black Miss Harvard, Yale or Princeton, and their students were upset about it, we we’d be quick to call them racist. The Sprite Step Off situation was indeed misleading and I can agree on that level that if there was deceptive advertising there is reason to be up set. However, to give these young ladies a standing ovation then decide

they don’t deserve the title is appalling behavior. Having the sororities share the title was just a movement to appease the complainants, and I’m not sure if I support the decision, because I am unclear on how genuine the intentions were. To those who attended and applauded for the ladies of Zeta Tau Alpha and then decided they shouldn’t have won, I hope you feel that way for the right reasons. Although I love Howard, it has turned out to be the home of many hypocritical ideas. One of the most fascinating things in history to me is how close knit the black community was until granted the “permission” to shop in facilities run by white vendors. Integration was essentially the end of black business and I see it here at Howard very clearly. A friend and I were discussing another young lady’s attire and I stated that she shouldn’t wear Baby Phat with Coach. My friend corrected me saying, “No…you can’t wear Baby Phat.” Her statement made me think about FUBU, Apple Bottoms, Karl Kani and some of the other black-owned fashion lines that many black people no longer support. Some of these same people would be quick to buy something from Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Versace or Chanel. What makes these Italian and French clothing lines have more longevity and success among our people than products produced “For Us By Us?” I am not trying to change anyone’s spending habits but just

out of curiosity, why is it that after a few summers it’s no longer cool to support these black urban lines (some of which have since been sold to white companies)? I have my moments when I miss home where I knew, understood and got along with people from different racial and religious backgrounds. I also have my moments when I catch myself feeling as though there are too many white people moving into Howard’s surrounding neighborhoods. I have moments when the mindset of my fellow students disturbs me, and when our lack of support for black businesses or each other saddens me. None of this would mean anything if I didn’t inspire a thought in another Howard student to stop and reevaluate themselves. Some of us are bourgeoisie, some of us are broke, some of us are both. But most of us are black, African, West Indian, descendants of enslaved ancestors of the motherland or indentured servants still trying to pay off a debt, or however you want to refer to yourself. We need to find a way uplift others like us without shunning or mistreating those among us who aren’t like us. Treat others how you want to be treated, not how you think they would treat you.
