IU men arrested in child sex case By Hannah Alani halani@indiana.edu | @HannahAlani

Four Monroe County men, including two IU students, have been arrested on charges of child molestation after a 13-year-old girl reported the men, independently of each other, engaged in sexual acts with her in their homes or in a car parked in a parking lot of a local elementary school. The victim told deputies she met them through a social media app, “Whisper.” Each of the sexual encounters occurred during fall 2016, and all four men were arrested on charges of child molestation, according to the Monroe County Sheriff ’s Office. Two of the men, Matthew J. Filipek, 23, and George W. R. Pearcy, 21, are IU students. At the time of publishing, Filipek and Pearcy did not respond to Indiana Daily Student request for comment.

China, renowned “China Remixed” at IU kicks off with talk by video artist Isaac Leung By Matt Rasnic mrasnic@umail.iu.edu | @Matt_Rasnic

A months-long series spotlighting Chinese arts and culture at IU kicked off Wednesday night with a talk by video artist Isaac Leung. Leung spoke at the IU Global and International Studies Building Auditorium about the public video art exhibition he curated as part of IU’s “China Remixed: Arts and Humanities in Contemporary Chinese Culture” series. The exhibition is being presented by IU Arts and Humanities Council and produced by Media School associate professor Stephanie DeBoer. The event will continue through March, and like all events in the “China Remixed” series, it’s free to the public. In his presentation, Leung talked about his time living in the United States during Bill Clinton’s presidency and how he quickly noticed China’s global presence. “China is everywhere,” Leung said. The video art exhibition will consist of multiple categories: reappropriation, activism, personal memories, city

exploration and the art of play. Leung showed an example of activism and said protesting in China is not like what it is in the United States. When protesting in China, people tend to make songs about what they are protesting rather than chanting slogans, Leung said. “I’m creating this program to promote knowledge,” Leung said. Leung was appointed as the chairman of Videotage in 2013. Videotage is a media art institution in China that works to serve artists and communities in Hong Kong. During Leung’s time at Videotage he had a hand in projects such as workshops, lectures, publications, online projects and symposia. Leung said many artists in Hong Kong focus on micro personal features they can show in small screenings. According to the IU Arts and Humanities website, “China Remixed” is the largest festival dedicated to Chinese arts and culture to ever come to the Midwest. “The Bloomington campus attracts creativity from all corners of the

globe,” said Lauren Robel, IU provost and executive vice president, in a press release last month. “China Remixed’ launches into the stratosphere from that base and gives our entire community an unparalleled opportunity to become immersed in the work of some of today’s finest Chinese and ChineseAmerican artists and thinkers.” It’s also the first installment of IU’s Global Arts and Humanities Festival, which is planned to be a regular spring event, according to last month’s press release. The “China Remixed” series will span 10 weeks and include more than 40 events on campus and in the Bloomington community. Later events in the series include a reading by comic-book artist Gene Luen Yang on Feb. 23, a talk by National Book Award-winning author Ha Jin on March 2 and a performance by stand-up comedian Joe Wong on April 14. Films by Chinese directors have been screening at the IU Cinema in conjunction with the series since late January.

IU seeking first win against ranked opponent By Jake Thomer jjthomer@indiana.edu | @jake_the_thomer

IU women’s basketball took a two-game road trip to Michigan and Northwestern in mid-January and lost both games. The Hoosiers were able to avenge the second of those defeats over the weekend when they beat the Wildcats thoroughly in a dominant defensive performance, and now, with No. 20 Michigan coming to Bloomington for a 6 p.m. tipoff Thursday, IU Coach Teri Moren said she and her team are eager to use the familiarity they have with the Wolverines to secure the Hoosiers’ first win over a ranked team all season. “There’s something about being able to play teams more than once,” Moren said. “That was a disappointing loss for us, and there certainly is motivation

there.” Michigan’s win against IU on Jan. 10 started a stretch in which the Wolverines have won eight of their last nine games. The lone loss came to No. 3 Maryland, which is in first place in the Big Ten and undefeated in conference play. Moren praised Michigan’s ability to win road games in the Big Ten. The Wolverines have already picked up four wins away from home in conference play. With just one freshman, guard Kysre Gondrezick, who plays more than nine minutes per game, Michigan’s roster boasts many experienced players. IU has yet to beat a ranked team this year and has losses to No. 3 Maryland and then-No. 14 Ohio State on its résumé. The Hoosiers are currently in the running for an NCAA Tournament bid and were included as a

Bloomington Police Department officers responded to a call from an apartment on West Country Road about a woman who was unconscious and unresponsive after overdosing on heroin at about 2 a.m. Wednesday. The woman, 31, was rushed to the hospital but later died. BPD Capt. Steve Kellams said when police arrived one of the two people who were with the woman was attempting CPR. Police also attempted to revive the woman. Medical personnel from IU Health arrived and used Narcan to revive her but were unsuccessful. She was then transported to the emergency room where police stayed with her until she was pronounced dead at 2:45 a.m. Wednesday. Stephen Sage, 25 and one of the two people there, was charged with dealing a level 5 narcotic after police investigated and determined he sold the heroin to the woman and had lied to police about the situation, Kellams said. A search of the area was conducted, but detectives are still filing the information and the report is incomplete as of Wednesday. Police are not revealing the woman’s name at this time because her family has yet to be notified. However, she is a Monroe County local.

IU transgender advocates voice concerns Larmie Sanyon lsanyon@indiana.edu | @LarmieSanyon

Bathrooms, sexuality and statistics were the focus of discussion late Wednesday afternoon at the Maurer School of Law. The event was “Dignity, Law, and Transgender Lives” and 100 people attended. Steve Sanders, an associate professor at the law school, moderated the event. His two guests were Joshua Block, an American Civil Liberties Union attorney via video chat, and Jody Herman from the Williams Institute at University of California, Los Angeles. Block said he is one of many lawyers around the nation who advocate for transgender equality. Gavin Grimm, one of his current clients, is a transgender boy, meaning he was labeled a girl at birth but identifies as a boy. Gavin’s case against his high school concerns bathroom usage and will be heard in front of the United States Supreme Court this spring. Block said regardless of what happens with the case, he wanted to make it clear the problem only arose when some parents found out Grimm was transgender. “If the school did not know he was transgender none of this would have

happened,” he said. “It’s really about social mores and fear of people that might be different from us.” Block said people wanted to simplify an issue which is complex because of gender identity. Society cannot have these sweeping exclusions, he said. Jody Herman, from the Williams Institute, said the fear of what people do not understand is starting to hurt a lot of transgender people. Herman said there were thousands of respondents to the 2015 U.S. Transgender Survey. There were respondents from every U.S. state and territory. From this survey she learned a lot of things national surveys had missed for years, she said. “Transgender folks don’t just live in San Francisco or New York,” she said. The 2015 survey research found 17 percent of respondents had to leave school because treatment was so bad. More than half avoided using public restrooms altogether by avoiding eating and drinking. “If you can’t use the restroom you can’t go anywhere,” Herman said. “It’s not only about dignity. It’s an ability to function.” She said the survey was old, and she would be interested in seeing newer data because there has been

progress. “For the federal landscape there has been a lot of progress,” Herman said. She said federally guaranteed protections from departments like the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Department of Defense and former President Barack Obama’s health care

law are examples of progress. On a state level, she said a lot more could be done. She displayed graphics depicting which states provide the best and worst protections for transgender people. Indiana is part of a larger area of the country that has room for improvement in nondiscrimination laws, she said.

Sanctuary status could be costly By Sarah Verschoor sverscho@iu.edu | @SarahVerschoor

The sanctuary campus movement, designed to aid and protect undocumented students, has grown nationally. However, the definitions of sanctuary campuses vary between different universities and activist organizations and some universities fear a loss of funding if they become sanctuary campuses. A sanctuary campus creates a protocol for a university’s staff and faculty to prevent the removal of undocumented students from campuses by immigration officials, said Dara Marquez, a member of Indiana Undocumented Youth Alliance. While IU has its own sanctuary campus movement led by the UndocuHoosier Alliance, organizations at campuses, including Purdue University and University of Notre Dame, around Indiana are also working toward a sanctuary campus. “Unless there is a very clear protocol where we know action will be taken for our protection, we cannot feel safe in the environment,” Marquez said. Marquez said she understands that, for public schools, funding through federal aid complicates the issue.

However, she said the reality of being deported in a class or dorm is a huge fear for undocumented students and makes the sanctuary designation and associated protocol even more important. Marquez said IU’s UndocuHoosier Alliance is a great example of a group taking action for undocumented students in the political environment. The UndocuHoosiers have worked with the Bloomington Faculty Council and Provost Lauren Robel to discuss their demands. On Jan. 31, at a Bloomington Faculty Council meeting, professor Shane Greene read an UndocuHoosiers signed statement advocating for a sanctuary campus along with other comments on recent executive orders. BFC member and law professor Steve Sanders and other BFC members met with the UndocuHoosiers soon after the meeting to discuss what the UndocuHoosiers wrote and their ongoing mission. “This a group we want to sit down with and make some concrete progress,” Sanders said. The sanctuary campus designation at IU and at many schools across the country is still a challenge. Public schools fear losing funding from the state and federal

government if they defy federal law. “If IU were to take a stance it wasn’t going to cooperate, the harmful consequence is it would quickly get the attention of Indiana state lawmakers, who tend to have very conservative attitudes,” Sanders said. IU is legally under the control of the general assembly because the legislative body approves IU’s budget, Sanders said. The general assembly could do anything from passing a law that requires IU to cooperate with federal authorities to trying to cut its budget. Marquez said state representatives aren’t necessarily aware of the daily life or reality for undocumented students because they have so many constituents to serve. Many people aren’t familiar with the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program either, she said. “It is necessary for administration to be engaged in these conversations and for student groups to form on campus to raise awareness,” Marquez said. However, Sanders also said that in the statements issued by IU’s president and provost, it has been made clear IU Police Department does not get involved in

“Unless there is a very clear protocol where we know action will be taken for our protection, we cannot feel safe in the environment,” Dara Marquez, member of Indiana’s Undocumented Youth Alliance

immigration enforcement or ask about immigration status. It only shares information to the extent required by law or subpoena. It is a strong protection that IU does not know students’ legal statuses, Sanders said. Unless they are in the DACA program, the University does not collect that information and presumably would have nothing to report if the federal government inquired. “We don’t ask for the status of people, and if we don’t ask, it’s not possible to take any sort of action against them,” Sanders said. Marquez said she believes the university, and the student population, would feel much safer with the guarantee of a sanctuary campus. “We would benefit from sanctuary campus because we would know our campus community has our back,” Marquez said.

Panelists give insight on achieving excellence By Hannah Boufford hbouffor@umail.iu.edu @hannahboufford

IU junior Austin Williams said he had been struggling with a lot of stress in his life, so he came to Neal-Marshall Black Cultural Center on Wednesday to connect with friends and do homework. However, instead of homework, Williams’ friends and mentors waved him into the Bridgewaters Lounge, where the Black Excellence Alumni Panel was underway. He said it was meant to be. “I gained words of wisdom,” Williams said. “And that’s patience and peace of mind.” Panelists Bill Shrewsberry, the president and CEO of Shrewsberry & Associates; Muhammad Saahir, a counselor at IU Health Center’s Counseling and Psychological Services; and Crystal Taliefero, the director of IU Soul Revue and a professional musician, discussed how they achieved excellence in their fields. “Specifically, as black folk, they are all moving in environments that were not necessarily created for them,” said Monica Johnson, director of the Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center.

The panelists talked to a crowd of about 30 about their struggles, triumphs and words of wisdom. They stressed the importance of taking care of self care while being the best they could be. Saahir said his biggest challenge in achieving excellence was remaining patient throughout the process. “There is always going to be a next until there’s nothing more,” he said. Shrewsberry echoed those sentiments by saying endurance and focus are crucial while trying to achieve goals. He advised the those present to find bits of knowledge on the path to achieve their goals. Taliefero also urged students to take care of themselves. She told the audience to remember not to be hard on themselves and that it’s good to be human. “I look at being a minority as an advantage,” she said. “I was basically invisible.” Being invisible helped Taliefero because she was able to observe other people do their jobs without them paying attention to her, she said. She said using your surroundings and being respectful is important because it sets the tone for meetings and interviews. Shrewsberry explained

She said states like Indiana need to do more for their transgender citizens. She said lawyers, activists and members of the transgender community thought progress would come sooner and easier than anyone thought. “A lot of that optimism and confidence has come to a screeching halt,” Herman

said. People cannot forget that there are people working toward transgender equality from many approaches, she said. People should not be discouraged by what sometimes seems like small victories. “There’s room for optimism,” Herman said.

Emerging African leaders will visit IU this summer From IDS reports

Hoosiers will have another opportunity to bridge the gap between the Midwest and sub-Saharan Africa this summer. IU will briefly be the home of 25 of Africa’s brightest emerging leaders, according to an IU press release. The six week program is sponsored by the United States Department of State, which chose 1,000 applicants from the more than 64,000-person pool. IU will work with the Mandela Washington Fellowship, which is the flagship program of the larger Young African Leaders Initiative, according to the release. The fellowship selects people through an analysis of their accomplishments in school and institutions of all kind regarding their roles as leaders, innovators and networkers in their community or the world. “We found that we had much to learn from each other,” David Zaret, IU’s vice president for international affairs, said in the release. “I look forward to another opportunity to get to know the bright, young African leaders of tomorrow.” He said in the release that last year’s event provided participants with powerful and engaged discussions with students, educators and community and business leaders. IU was host to the civic leadership track in 2016. The program directors

this year said they remain interested in continuing the program. One of Zaret’s colleagues is Teshome Alemneh, IU’s associate vice president for international development. He shared Zaret’s satisfaction with the 2016 program and what the next summer would have to offer. “Hosting these young Africans has been inspiring and is an investment in a new generation of young leaders who shape the continent’s future, and it reinforces IU’s global engagement toward increased connections and mutual understanding,” Alemneh said. Fellows of the Mandela Washington program will also be able to visit other IU campuses like IU-Purdue University Indianapolis. In addition to IU campuses, fellows will visit many more venues throughout Bloomington and Indianapolis like Ivy Tech Community College, Cook Medical, Habitat for Humanity and the Girls & Boys Club. Finally, fellows visiting IU will conclude their visit to the U.S. by congregating in Washington, D.C., with other fellows. A summit will take place and a select few will be allowed to spend an additional six weeks in the U.S. and receive general training from governmental and non-governmental agencies. Larmie Sanyon

that people have to prove their character over the color of their skin. He stressed the audience should be as sharp as possible. “You’re not only outstanding, but you’re standing out,” he said. However, the panel recognized working constantly, reading the room and trying to figure out what they were up against are extremely tiring at the end of the day. “You’re exhausted from trying to dismantle the system without appearing as a threat to the system,” Johnson said. Saahir said that it was important to surround yourself with family and faith because

those, along with his fraternity brothers, were his greatest resources. “Emotions — it’s like going to the restroom,” he said. “They’re going to come out with or without your permission.” While the room laughed at this comment, the other panelists commented on the truth of the statement. They urged the room to talk to family and friends when they needed support. Williams, after listening to the panel, said he felt like he had gotten confidence and inspiration from the night. “I made it this far,” he said. “And I can keep going.”

Members of the Bloomington Common Council meet Wednesday evening at City Hall. Each of the seven areas up for city annexation was considered as individual resolutions during the meeting.

Council OKs all resolutions By Emily Ernsberger emelerns@indiana.edu | @emilyerns

Council chambers were full at Wednesday’s Bloomington Common Council meeting with concerned city and county residents as the council discussed seven resolutions regarding proposed city annexation. Each annexation resolution was passed. Citizens expressed concerns ranging from fire department coverage to the haste of the annexation process. These resolutions do not enact annexation. The resolutions are permission given by the council to begin the process of considering annexation. Seven separate areas in and around the current city limits were proposed for annexation by Mayor John Hamilton last month. If all are approved, the annexation would add 10,000 acres and bring the official population of Bloomington to 100,000. If the annexation passes, it will not take in effect until Jan. 1, 2020. Many residents of the sixth section, reaching from the northeastern boundaries to E. Lanam Road and N. Russel Rd, were vocally against being annexed. “I’m very angry that someone is making a decision whether I want to live in the city or the county,” one Monroe County resident said during public comment. “I don’t like having my rights — my independence — taken away.” If 65 percent of the residents of an area gather signatures against being annexed, they will not be considered for annexation, according to city legal counsel. Ryan Cobine, president of the Monroe County Council, asked the council to slow down this annexation process.

“It is so vast and complicated that the aggressive schedule gives time for a plan that demands total clarity,” Cobine said. Julie Thomas, president of the Monroe County Board of Commissioners, said the county commissioners and council had no advanced notice of the annexation plan. “We did not receive maps in advance, a set of scope in advance, and that’s not a good way to start a conversation,” said, Thomas, adding the lack of notice to county government and residents was annexation without representation. Concerns over transparency were also expressed from, with residents in annexed areas believing they did not have enough notice about the annexation. The majority of council members individually reiterated the notion that the resolutions were a start to the process of considering annexation. Members expressed being just as knowledgeable about the annexation influence as the public did, having all of their information coming from the 300 page fiscal impact plan available on the city’s website. “I’m embarrassed to say I haven’t read it yet,” council vice-president Dorothy Granger said. Multiple public comments also addressed the cuts to funding township fire departments would receive when annexed areas would be absorbed by the city, whose residents would pay into city public services instead. Mayor John Hamilton said in a work session with the council last month the delay was to give time for township fire department contracts to finish. Council members questioned city legal coun-

sel about a bill currently in the Indiana Senate that would require county’s to approve or deny any city annexations. If passed, it would go into effect June 30. The proposed annexation process, which begins with the resolutions and continues with formally proposing ordinances, having public meetings, notifying residents in annexed areas about any progress and passing the ordinances by the end of June. Most of the public comments made at the meeting expressed concern about the seemingly rushed process. “We don’t even have to have these resolutions,” corporation counsel for the city Philippa Guthrie said. “We’re starting the discussions now within the limits of the statute.” The council also unanimously approved the distribution of City Development Block Grant funds to nonprofit organizations and government departments. Bloomington receives CDBG every year from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to use for social services, physical improvements and administration. The city is expected to receive $700,000 this year. That total is down 10 percent from last year. The city’s two Citizen Advisory Committees, established to consider what applicants should receive CDBG funding, have recommended $105,000 of the grant be distributed to local

social services groups, such as Community Kitchen, Hoosier Hills Food Bank, Middle Way House, Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard and Monroe County United Ministries. Another $455,000 was suggested to be given to physical improvements and be distributed to the Bloomington Housing Authority, LifeDesigns, city Housing and Urban Development, Middle Way House, Community Kitchen, Monroe County United Ministries, city Parks and Recreation, Monroe County Community School Corporation, and city Public Works. City council president Susan Sandberg and member Tim Mayer sat on the committees for choosing applicants for the grants. The remaining $140,000 will go to the administration of the city Housing and Neighborhood Development. Centerstone and Shalom Community Center did not receive any funding from CDBG funds, though they did apply. Council member Dave Rollo asked why they received nothing. Sandberg said that the review process requires analyzing how many people and how widely an organization affects the city, and that just because an organization does not receive money from the grant does not mean they are meaningless to the city. “The committees go through some real hard decisions of where the money goes,” Sandberg said.

Police investigating murder of two teens By Jack Evans jackevan@indiana.edu | @JackHEvans

DELPHI, Indiana – Two bodies found in the woods Tuesday were identified Wednesday as those of a pair of teenage girls reported missing Monday evening. Police are investigating the deaths as homicides. Carroll County Sheriff Tobe Leazenby said in a press conference he could not recall a previous double murder or child murder in the Delphi, Indiana, area. Liberty German, 14, and Abigail Williams, 13, had been dropped off Monday afternoon at a hiking trail east of Delphi, and when family members arrived to pick them up later in the afternoon, the girls weren’t there. Search parties scowered the area Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning, and the search ended early Tuesday afternoon when the two bodies were found about three-quarters of a mile from where the girls were last seen, police said. Leazenby and Indiana

State Police Sgt. Kim Riley, both of whom spoke in the press conference, said they could provide few details because the investigation is ongoing. However, Riley noted that in he and Leazenby, who have worked at their respective agencies since 1986, have never seen an investigation this large. In addition to ISP and the sheriff ’s office, the Delphi Police Department and an FBI evidence recovery team — a total of 25 to 30 investigators, Riley said — are involved in the investigation. Law enforcement has not taken anyone into custody in connection to the murders, but investigators have received hundreds of tips, Leazenby said. “There is someone out there who committed this crime, and we’re going to track them down,” he said. Though the bodies were discovered Tuesday, law enforcement waited until they received autopsy results Wednesday to identify the bodies. No members of either girl’s family spoke at

the press conference, but Leazenby said the parents had suspected the bodies belonged to their daughters even before identification. “They were in pretty much belief that it was their children, but when you hear it from an official, it hits home twice,” he said. Delphi, a small town near Lafayette, Indiana, has a population of less than 3,000, according to the 2010 census. Many people, including law enforcement officers, in the community know the girls’ families, Riley said in a press conference earlier Wednesday morning. He used to patrol the county, and he said he knows people in the area who are worried about their own children in the wake of the crime. Riley said people should be cautious, but he stopped short of saying parents should be more concerned than usual. “You should be always worried about your children, today or any day,” he said. Authorities did not send

out an Amber Alert for the girls when they were reported missing. Riley said the situation didn’t meet all the necessary criteria for an alert, and even if one had been released, because of the short distance between the girls’ last known location and their bodies it would not have helped. The town was mostly hushed Wednesday, though it showed a few signs of the crimes. Several television media vans lined the street near the town’s municipal building. A sheriff ’s deputy blocked the road leading to the area where the girls were last seen. A sandwich board in front of the Sandwich Shop, a local restaurant, referenced the murders with a short request: “Prayers for our community!” Just before the afternoon press conference started outside the municipal building, two police vehicles, silent but with lights on, turned the corner across the street. In their wake followed a line of cars. The first was a hearse.

Trump meets with Israeli Prime Minister By Melanie Metzman mmetzman@indiana.edu @melanie_metzman

President Trump met with the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Trump’s labor secretary pick withdrew their nomination. Here’s a rundown of what happened and why it matters. Trump builds relationship with Israel Trump announced in a joint press conference from the White House with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday the United States would would push for a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians. Trump also asked Israel to “hold back” on building additional settlements. This was the leaders’ first face-to-face meeting since the inauguration. “The United States will encourage apeace and really a great peace deal. We’ll be working on it very diligently,” Trump said. “But it is the parties themselves who must directly negotiate such an agreement.” Trump said in order for Israel to broker this deal, it will have to be flexible and make it apparent that they want to make a deal. and “they have to show they really want to make a deal.” For the Palestinians, Trump said they must also be flexible. He added, they would “have to get rid of some of the hate that they’re taught from a very young age.” The leaders also discussed their allegiance to one another in the fight against “radical islam.”

“Israel has no better ally than the United States, and I want to assure you the United States has no better ally than Israel,” Netanyahu said. Trump calls Flynn “wonderful man” Though Trump asked for Flynn’s resignation Monday after he misled Vice President Mike Pence regarding sanctions with the Russian ambassador, Trump still has a positive opinion of the former national security adviser. “General Flynn is a wonderful man. I think he has been treated very, very unfairly by the media, as I call it, the fake media, in many cases,” Trump said. “And I think it is really a sad thing that he was treated so badly.” Labor secretary nominee withdraws Andrew Puzder, Trump’s nominee for secretary of labor and CEO of fast food restaurants Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr., withdrew himself from the confirmation process Wednesday. Puzder came under fire from Democrats after it came to light that he employed an undocumented immigrant housekeeper, according to CNN. “After careful consideration and discussions with my family, I am withdrawing my nomination for Secretary of Labor,” Puzder said in a statement Wednesday. “I am honored to have been considered by President Donald Trump to lead the Department of Labor and put America’s workers and businesses back on a path to sustainable prosperity.”

COLIN’S COLUMN

Editors Dylan Moore and Zack Chambers opinion@idsnews.com

EDITORIAL BOARD

Don’t walk back Wall Street regulation For an opinion columnist Donald Trump’s presidency might seem like a boon. His every action makes for constant material, and he’s so easy to criticize. However, to be honest, I actively avoid writing about him because so many other writers cover him. However, recently he’s suggested something that I can’t ignore. He’s promised to “dismantle the DoddFrank Act.” Already, this Tuesday he signed a bill repealing disclosure provisions on oil and gas companies. Most people don’t know what the Dodd-Frank Act is. As a result, Trump’s push to remove it is all the more dangerous because there won’t be protests or public backlash, like there was with the travel ban. This is why it’s so important that we keep informed about this. For a little background, the Dodd-Frank Act was put into place after the 2008 stock market crash. It’s a collection of regulations and policies aimed at increasing transparency and accountability for banks. Basically a second GlassSteagall act, which was put in place to prevent another Great Depression, DoddFrank is in place to help prevent speculation that could prove dangerous to the United States economy. I have very few issues that I’m extremely passionate about, but one of them is market stability, and DoddFrank is an excellent tool for ensuring this sort of security. In fact, I believe we need stronger measures, not weaker ones, constraining banks. Most major financial downturns are caused by banks overstepping their bounds, which is why despite how important they are, we need to keep them under control. This was one of the main reasons I supported Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont. I found some of his other policies a bit unrealistic, but I knew he would keep our banks in check. However, Trump is

considering dismantling legislation which keeps us from falling into another big recession, but the most egregious affront is his reasoning. Trump’s reasoning and the reason for my fear that he’ll repeal and not revise it is captured by Trump’s own words. As reported by the Atlantic, Trump spoke at a briefing earlier this month. Before meeting with his economic advisory council, he stated, “I have so many people, friends of mine, with nice businesses — they can’t borrow money, because the banks just won’t let them borrow because of the rules and regulations and Dodd-Frank.” Likewise, Trump is also taking his cues from Wall Street here. The Atlantic also quotes Trump as having said, “There’s nobody better to tell me about Dodd-Frank than Jamie,” referring to the current Chief Executive Officer of megabank J.P. Morgan, Jamie Dimon. These regulations against his Wall Street friends are the exact reason for the existence of the Dodd-Frank Act. The regulations ensure the integrity of our financial structure and help prevent our economy from ending up like one of Trump’s failed business ventures. We cannot allow the entire economy to run like a Trump casino. To many, this might seem secondary to other issues, like Trump’s immigration ban or Betsy DeVos as his education secretary, but for me, this is at the forefront. This sort of regulation is what keeps our nation from economic turmoil, and if we face another recession, that’s thousands of Americans who lose their jobs, lose their livelihoods and lose their security. That’s why we cannot allow Trump to repeal the Dodd-Frank Act. In doing so he would be enriching his friends at the expense of the American people. ctdombro@umail.iu.edu @doctorthaddeus

Asset forfeiture is abused Civil asset forfeiture procedures are open to abuse by police Life has probably taught you by now that even if you don’t do anything wrong, you’re not necessarily protected from harm. For example, even if you are not charged or convicted with a crime, police officers can still seize any of your assets — property, cash, cars, etc. — that they suspect is connected to criminal activity. Furthermore, you would have to file a civil suit to reclaim what you lost. However, you would not have the right to an attorney because your court case would not concern an actual crime. This practice is called civil asset forfeiture, and it originated in the Prohibition era when police wanted to seize and resell vehicles used for transporting bootlegged alcohol. Since then, profits from seized assets have become a important source of funding for police departments, and critics of civil asset forfeiture argue that it encourages corruption. The Editorial Board

stands firmly among those critics and believes reform is necessary to protect citizens’ rights from potential abuse by law enforcement agencies. These agencies claim that, particularly with drug dealing, financial consequences can be easier and more effective in impeding dealers than actual arrests. However, as the Huffington Post reports, Robert Johnson, an attorney for the Institute of Justice, notes, “civil forfeiture creates a financial incentive to go after the financial target rather than the real criminal.” The Institute of Justice is a public interest law firm, and part of its argument against civil asset forfeiture is the lack of transparency in records of seized assets. Last year, the institute released a nationwide report on state records and found that 31 states could not pass its evaluation. Indiana, for example, satisfied only eight out of 20 requirements for sufficient

record-keeping. Among the information Indiana’s records omitted was the estimated value of property seized, the crime for which a suspect was charged — if any — and the outcome of the suspect’s case. Public opinion, as measured in a nationwide poll taken by the Cato Institute, a Washington think tank, in 2016 shows an 84% disapproval rating for civil asset forfeiture, and there are currently fifteen states — including Indiana — that are introducing legislature for reform. Indiana Senate Bill 8 proposes that seized property will be “forfeited to the state only if the owner of the property has been convicted of a criminal offense,” as well as that this property will no longer be turned over to the federal government. If passed, SB8 will ensure innocent citizens cannot lose their possessions unjustly, and it will encourage police departments to focus on addressing crime instead

of abusing their powers to turn a profit. Other reforms, including Senate Bill 113, proposing an annual report of forfeitures, and House Bill 1123, forming committees to find funds to replace what would be lost in forfeitures, are under consideration for the 120th General Assembly, and the Editorial Board fully endorses all of these measures. Innocent citizens should not be punished because police departments are struggling with their budgets. Civil asset forfeiture places an unfair burden on all of us, especially lower income individuals who do not have the resources to win their possessions back in court. In light of its facilitation of corruption and its disapproval among constituents, civil asset forfeiture demands reform, and the Editorial Board urges the Indiana Senate to enact such reform.

Stop being snobby about pop culture

You should remember the classics

Pop culture has taken a turn for the weird in the 2010s. Despite that, we love it. I pick which parts of pop culture I enjoy and which ones I don’t. However, even if I do not like a certain part of pop culture, I’m not about to shame someone for enjoying it. My Facebook feed Sunday night and last week inspired this article. I saw so many relatives and friends from high school griping and moaning about how they “just don’t get Beyoncé” or think they’re cool because they don’t like her. Before that, the same people were griping about Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl performance and saying she’s overrated. Yes, artists who are typically well known and liked are the ones chosen to perform at the Super Bowl. The point of pop culture is it is made up of popular things that will more than likely be overrated. There’s nothing wrong with

loving pop culture. There’s also nothing wrong with hating pop culture. I just wish people would stop being snobs about it. Our culture of consumerism and popularity has created a subculture of sorts that promotes shaming people for hopping on the trends. This is not to say that I do not appreciate people who critique pop culture. Being critical of the media we are presented with is important. When we are critical of it, it lets the creators know what we want and what we do not want. Things such as representation and portrayals are important concepts to be critiqued within pop culture. Linda Holmes, a blogger for National Public Radio, says it is important to study and ingest pop culture because the way we react to it reflects our interests in society as well. When seeing all of the complaining without substance

MIRANDA GARBACIAK is a junior in creative writing

on Facebook, I talked with my friends to find out what they thought about pop culture. I spoke with some of my friends about this issue and one had a particularly insightful take. To paraphrase her, pop culture is not just some fanciful thing we can ignore. The culture is the essence of our lives. Everyone has to live in this culture and interact with others every day that are influenced by it. Let’s be critical and constructive of the material we are consuming without shaming people for enjoying it. Let’s not shame people who don’t want to be critical and just want to enjoy pop culture. In essence, that is what pop culture is created for: enjoyment. mmgarbac@umail.iu.edu

People generally tend to connect with media they can relate to. Perhaps we see ourselves in the characters being portrayed. Because of this classic literature is often ignored, especially by our younger generations. These classic works are relatable, relevant and important in the modern world. For example, one of my favorite novels of all time is Victor Hugo’s “Les Misérables,” written in 1862. It is an epic tale of redemption, love and revolution. It isn’t widely read by students today mostly because it is extremely long and contains long chapters tediously describing sewer systems. Despite that, it has incredibly important historical relevance. Classic literature is an immersive historical experience that keeps us connected and informed about events that shaped our modern day culture. On

top of that, classic literature can be just as enjoyable and relatable as contemporary forms of media. We see the same funny, interesting and complex characters in novels written in 1862 as we do in the novels written in 2017. Looking to Hugo again, his characters are surprisingly relatable to the modern day college student. One of our young heroes, Marius Pontmercy, sat for hours in the same park everyday to stare at the same girl he was too nervous to talk to, and when he finally did speak to her, he hit his head on a tree. Hugo’s tragic revolutionary characters that died in the rebellion were all college students, trying to make sense of everything from their law classes to their increasingly oppressive government, which feels all too familiar. So many classic works of literature have these

striking relevancies to our lives, some not all that deep. In another one of my favorite novels, Leo Tolstoy’s “War and Peace,” the protagonist Pierre finds himself at a party binge drinking. Classic literature is important and teaches us many things about the foundations of history and culture that connect to our daily lives. But what people fail to realize is that it is also incredibly passionate and fun. Novels written by Tolstoy, Jane Austen, Oscar Wilde and F. Scott Fitzgerald can be just as exciting and entertaining as the television shows we are watching on Netflix. I encourage all of you to branch out and enjoy these books as a new source of entertainment. emmagetz@umail.iu.edu

Batting order has wealth of talent for 2017 By Spencer Davis spjdavis@umail.iu.edu @spencer_davis16

Despite posting a team batting average of .257 — its lowest mark in more than 30 years — in 2016, IU baseball players and coaches said they are confident the talent in its deep lineup will allow that number to rise this season. IU Coach Chris Lemonis said he will have a tough decision to make regarding the leadoff spot. On Monday, he listed senior outfielder Alex Krupa, junior outfielder Laren Eustace and freshman infielder Jeremy Houston as potential table setters. Lemonis named Houston the team’s starting shortstop Monday. Lemonis said he is impressed with the Chicago native’s ability to play arguably the toughest position on the field at a high level. “Our lineup is going to have some real depth to it, and when you’ll be able to put your freshman down there and let him hit in that part of the lineup, it’s key,” Lemonis said. “He’s a freshman, and it’s hard to put too much into freshmen, but he’s a good one.” When Krupa and senior infielder Tony Butler were producing well last season, the team succeeded. Senior outfielder Craig Dedelow said he believes their bright stretches were

just a glimpse of what the Hoosiers can be this year. After strong campaigns in 2015 and 2016, which culminated in a 2016 MLB draft selection by the Pittsburgh Pirates, Dedelow is back in Bloomington for his final season. He will hold down the middle of IU’s lineup along with junior outfielder Logan Sowers. Lemonis said having the duo in the lineup will be key for the offense as a whole. “These guys have played a lot of baseball, and they’ve swung it really well to this point,” Lemonis said. “I think that they are at a point in their career where they are ready to have big years.” Sowers said the game has slowed down for him now after seeing even more college pitching during the summer. He also said he’s confident he will rebound from the hand injury he suffered last season. The junior said he has noticed clear jumps and improvements in the play of last year’s freshmen. Now that they are more experienced, they have a good idea of what this season is going to be like, Sowers said. “We feel like we have a really strong lineup one through nine,” Sowers said. “We feel like everyone has a chance to hit for some power, get on base, steal some bags and hit for

average too.” Lemonis used the versatility of Luke Miller last season. The then-freshman bounced around from position to position. In order to maximize the production and number of at-bats for Miller in his sophomore season, IU’s third-year coach announced the utility man will see more permanent play at third base in 2017. Perhaps the position with the largest increase in depth is the catcher spot. Last season, then-freshman Ryan Fineman started 23 of IU’s 24 Big Ten games behind the plate for the Hoosiers, and rarely was able to get any rest. Sophomore Eric Hansen and freshman Jake Matheny will provide Fineman with much-needed rest as they fill in for him throughout the season. “We feel like we have three really capable catchers right there,” Lemonis said. “We’re still developing defensively all the time but we like our catching position right now.”

SOFTBALL

IU softball seeks improved hitting at Texas tournament By Cameron Drummond cpdrummo@iu.edu | @cdrummond97

IU softball had few issues on the defensive side of the diamond in its opening tournament last weekend, but struggled mightily to produce runs offensively when the situation called for it. The Hoosiers left 27 runners on base during their five games at the Kajikawa Classic, a tournament they left with a 2-3 record. Furthermore, IU was shut out in two of its three losses. IU Coach Michelle Gardner said generating hits with runners in scoring position will be a focus for the Hoosiers this weekend at the Texas Invitational in Austin, Texas. “We didn’t hit as well last weekend as I thought we would,” Gardner said. “I thought we were pressing a bit, and hopefully we’re through doing that.” IU’s second nonconference tournament of the season will feature two games each against South Carolina and tournament host Texas, as well as a game against

Louisiana Tech. After playing three teams that reached the NCAA Tournament in 2016 last weekend, IU will face two more this weekend in the Longhorns and Gamecocks. South Carolina, in particular, poses a threat to IU’s hitting. The Gamecocks allowed only one run in five games at their opening tournament. “We were trying to just touch the ball last weekend instead of squaring up a bad pitch,” Gardner said. “If we get more aggressive early in the count, we’ll get to see better pitches to hit later on.” One of the few Hoosiers who didn’t struggle at the plate last weekend was junior infielder Rachel O’Malley, who leads the team in batting average, hits and RBIs. Gardner said she values O’Malley not only for what she brings offensively but also her versatility on defense. “I moved Rachel back and forth a bit between third base and shortstop, but defensively she’s amazing,” Gardner said. “Just

having her presence out there is good.” Louisiana Tech and South Carolina both sit at 5-0 entering the Texas Invitational, while Texas went 3-2 last weekend with a win against Big Ten foe Maryland. Playing multiple games in a tournament against the same opponent is reflective of what conference play will look like for the Hoosiers, when they will play a host of two-game and three-game series. However, Gardner said she doesn’t plan to make major adjustments to the lineup from one game to the next. “I’m just putting the best nine players out there that I can and making some changes when I feel the necessity to do it,” Gardner said. Sophomore pitcher Emily Kirk suffered a broken nose in IU’s victory against Seattle in the Kajikawa Classic and had surgery Monday. Gardner said Kirk will wear a face mask when she returns to pitching, although whether she pitches in Texas or not will depend

on how she feels. Freshman pitcher Emily Goodin, who recorded a 0.98 ERA in more than 14 innings of relief work last weekend, will fill Kirk’s place in the starting rotation. IU will continue to experiment with its options

at catcher this weekend. Freshman Bella Norton started four games compared to just one for junior Shayna Gamm, although Gardner said there will be more of a balance in playing time between the two going forward. Gamm, like Gardner,

said it’s important for the team to string together hits this weekend. “Our biggest problem was not scoring runners when they reached base,” Gamm said. “That’s something that we’ve worked on in practice, and that will come with time.”

MEN’S SOCCER

IU men’s soccer sets spring schedule From IDS Reports

IU men’s soccer and IU Coach Todd Yeagley announced their schedule for the 2017 spring season Wednesday. The spring season will begin in a few weeks. The slate kicks off Feb. 25 with two matches against Valparaiso and Evansville at Mellencamp Pavilion. IU will also play host to Xavier on March 3 at Mellencamp as well. The spring schedule will continue with a match March 5 when the Hoosiers travel to Grand Park in Westfield, Indiana, to face off against United Soccer League’s Swope Park Rangers. Swope Park is based

in the Kansas City, Missouri area. That match will be played at the indoor facility at 3:15 p.m. The schedule continues with a match in Fort Wayne, Indiana, against Notre Dame at 7 p.m., April 8 at the Shindigz National Soccer Festival at University of Saint Francis’ Bishop John D’Arcy Football Stadium. IU will return to Grand Park for the Crossroads of America College Showcase on April 21 when it takes on the Cincinnati Bearcats at 7 p.m. “These matches will give our staff an opportunity to experiment with lineups, as well as fine tune roles and

relationships with our returning players,” Yeagley said in a release from IU Athletics. “Playing against tough competition this spring will provide a good measuring stick for our players and staff as we prepare for the fall season.” The spring season wraps up April 30 as the Hoosiers play host to the Mexico U-18 Youth National team at Bill Armstrong Stadium in Bloomington. This will be the 11th meeting between the two sides. IU has a 4-6 mark against the Mexican team and earned a 2-0 win against the U-20 team last year. In a recent interview on the Indiana Daily Student

men’s soccer podcast, Yeagley talked about wanting to set up a schedule that could mimic the fall schedule as much as possible. He also mentioned the possibility of playing some 9-against-9 during their matches at Mellencamp Pavilion. “Hosting the Mexican Youth National team in Bloomington has been a highlight event for our soccer program for the past 10 years,” Yeagley said in the release. “Our community, fans and players all enjoy this spectacular match at Armstrong Stadium.” Josh Eastern

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 “We have a great plan for them. It’s going to be a big win for your résumé, no question.” In the previous battle between the two teams, Michigan’s 6-foot-5 sophomore center Hallie Thome was tough to stop for IU. She made nine of 11 shots and scored 21 points with 11 rebounds. Thome averages 15 points, 7.2 rebounds and a pair of blocks per game. Part of what makes defending against Michigan so difficult is the ability of the Wolverine post players to dish the ball out to some of the country’s best 3-point shooters, Moren said. Michigan has the best 3-point field goal percentage in the NCAA with a 40.8 percent mark as a team. Gondrezick, who shoots 47.3 percent from behind the arc, teams up with junior guard Katelynn Flaherty in the sharpshooting Michigan backcourt. Flaherty is averaging 20.2 points per game this season and has a 38.7 percent 3-point field goal percentage. IU senior center Jenn Anderson, who stands two inches shorter than Thome at 6-foot-3, was able to hold her own offensively in the last game against Michigan. Anderson had 21 points to match Thome, but Thursday the Hoosiers need Anderson to challenge the Wolverine center more on the defensive end. “You have to make

The victim said she had

every shot for her tough,” Anderson said. “We know that she’s left-handed, so we really have to close off her power moves and make her try to use her right hand.” Moren said her post players will attempt to

double team Thome as much as they can, but facing a double-team will be nothing new to Thome or the rest of her teammates. Improving shot selection will be key for IU, Moren said. The Hoosiers made

just three of 13 3-pointers against the Wolverines in January, so the IU backcourt of junior guard Tyra Buss and senior Karlee McBride will look to shoot efficiently and avoid mistakes. The Big Ten schedule

is winding down and just three regular season games remain for IU after Thursday’s matchup. Moren said things have changed in the past month for her team, and the mindset of her players is

different. “We’re playing with a greater purpose, a greater sense of urgency because we know it’s there for us,” Moren said. “There’s no question that it’s going to give us some momentum.”

a sexual encounter with a 25-year-old man, and this man knew her age. She later told MCSO investigators she met three other adult men at their Bloomington homes. The victim’s report included a “tremendous amount of de- Thomas tail,” accord- Snape ing to the release. Detectives used digital evidence, including text messages, to corroborate her statement, according to the release. The detectives identified the four men, found probable cause and issued warrants to the men individually. One man may have met the victim multiple times. Current evidence Evan Miller indicates that all four men knew the victim was underage, Swain said. During the course of

the last few weeks MCSO deputies arrested all four suspects on charges of child molestation. They are all from Bloomington. Evan Miller, 25, was the first of the four men arrested. Deputies arrested Miller on Feb. 2. According to MyCase, an online database of Indiana civil and criminal cases, Miller has a history of criminal charges, including a battery causing bodily injury in 2015, failure to use a seatbelt and having an open container while driving in 2015, driving while suspended in 2013, and two charges of underage consumption of alcohol in 2010, in Monroe County. Miller was booked into the Monroe County Detention Center with a bond of $1,000. Pearcy, 21, was arrested Monday. According to the IU Address Book Pearcy is a student and employee of Residential Programs and Services. According to Pearcy’s LinkedIn account he is a political science major and a former student mentor. According to

Pearcy’s Facebook account he is the associate editor of the IU Journal of Undergraduate Research. Pearcy appears to have no prior criminal record. Filipek, 23, was arrested Tuesday. According to the IU Address Book, Filipek is an IU student and a temporary employee in the biology department. According to his LinkedIn account, Filipek is a master’s student in biotechnology. Filipek appears to have no prior criminal record. Thomas A. Snape, 23, was arrested Wednesday and was additionally charged with possession of a controlled substance. According to IU Address Book, Snape is not a student. However, his LinkedIn account states he graduated from the IU Kelley School of Business in 2015 with a degree in accounting. He was wearing a Kelley School of T-shirt in his mug shot. Snape appears to have no prior criminal record. Pearcy and Filipek were booked into the Monroe

County Detention Center with a bond of $500. As of Wednesday evening, the MCSO had not published Snape’s jail booking record. The MCSO described Whisper in its press release as “an anonymous social networking application” where users can chat with each other anonymously. When a user posts a public whisper if someone responds, it will show the approximate distance between the user who posted the Whisper and the user replying, according to the MCSO release. Whisper does not require the user to register and users generally do not provide identifying information to the app. Whisper stores content posted for public viewing, however once users start to chat with each other, that data is not public content, and Whisper does not keep a record of those conversations, according to the release. Additionally, Whisper is also not able to match posted content with an exact IP address, which makes

it “almost impossible for law enforcement to obtain information” from the app, according to the release. Parents should be mindful that Whisper offers users anonymity, and apps such as Whisper can “facilitate a child’s reckless decisions,” Swain said. Had the 13-year-old not discussed her use of the app at school, and had the school not called law enforcement, it’s very possible the victim’s parents would never have learned about her use of the app, Swain said. Swain urged parents to not be “buddy-buddy” when it comes to monitoring their children’s online activity. “There’s no sense of fair play when it comes to protecting a child who’s going to do conscious, shocking activity,” Swain said. “For Heaven’s sakes, nobody wants to have that kind of thing in their household. You don’t want to be in a position as parents where you wish you’d been a little more nosy.”

Hollywood has a history of erasing roles meant for Asian actors. The US premiere of ‘The Great Wall’ reopens the

diversity debate. TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

Matt Damon stars in “The Great Wall,” in theaters Friday.

Whitewashing of Asian roles is an ongoing Hollywood issue Kate Halliwell khalliwe@indiana.edu @Kate__Halliwell

With the Academy Awards quickly approaching, Hollywood’s diversity problem is once again on most people’s minds. This year’s slate of nominees is, thankfully, the most diverse lineup in a long time, with seven acting nominees of color and various stories about people of color in the best picture race. With that said, most of this year’s nominees of color are black. While black actors and filmmakers have historically struggled in Hollywood, they are not alone. Dev Patel is only the 13th actor of Asian descent to be nominated for an Oscar, and he’s the second Indian actor ever nominated. Asian representation in the entertainment industry often falls to the wayside when discussions of diversity take place, but it presents more of a problem every year. Not only do Asian actors struggle for recognition, but the

whitewashing and erasure of Asian roles in film and television is a constant and overlooked issue. There are a few famous examples of whitewashing Asian roles, like when Emma Stone was chosen to play a multi-racial character of Asian descent in 2015’s “Aloha” or when Jake Gyllenhaal donned eyeliner and a dark spray tan to play the eponymous “Prince of Persia” in 2010. Actor and comedian Aziz Ansari is outspoken about the struggle of Indian actors in Hollywood. “These days, Indian people, real Indian people, pop up way more in film and television, but fake Indians are still around more than you think,” he said in an interview with the New York Times. “I loved ‘The Social Network,’ but I have a hard time understanding why the Indian-American Harvard student Divya Narendra was played by Max Minghella, a half-Chinese, half-Italian British actor.” Just in the last few years,

instances of blatant whitewashing and erasure of Asian roles is staggering. Films like “Exodus: Gods and Kings” and “Gods of Egypt” purposely set their stories in Middle-Eastern countries yet cast white actors in the leading roles. While their reasoning is clear from a monetary standpoint, the fact that studios think Asian actors can’t bring in enough money to anchor blockbusters is a far-reaching cultural issue. In 2014, “Edge of Tomorrow” was adapted from a popular novel into an action blockbuster. While the main character of the book was a Japanese hero named Keiji Kiriya, the role was adapted to fit Tom Cruise, and the film ended up starring almost entirely white actors. The examples go on and on. In 2015, white actress Mackenzie Davis was cast in the role of Kim Park in “The Martian.” Her casting prompted questions of why it was necessary to change the race of such a minor

character in the book and film adaptation from Korean to Caucasian. In Tina Fey’s Afghanistanset “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot” last year, the two major Afghan characters are played by Christopher Abbott and Alfred Molina, neither of whom are of Asian descent. “I had a lot of say. If your next question is, why is Chris Abbott not Afghan? — I did beg [the casting directors], ‘Guys, my preference would be a native speaker,’” Fey told the New York Times. “They pleaded their case that Chris [was] their choice. Tricky thing is, Afghans [can be] Caucasians.” Fey isn’t the only filmmaker to make excuses for their casting choices. Last year’s “Doctor Strange” infamously cast Tilda Swinton as the Ancient One, who is an older Himalayan man in the Marvel comics. When controversy arose upon her casting, Marvel was quick to defend their film by arguing that they changed the role to a white woman in order

to avoid perpetuating Asian stereotypes. Marvel’s Netflix series “Iron Fist” has also been in headlines lately due to displeasure over the casting of Finn Jones in the lead role. While Iron Fist is a white man in the Marvel comics, the series draws on many Asian cultural aspects and traditions of martial arts. Many fans and critics hoped Marvel would take the opportunity of “Iron Fist” to diversify their lineup by casting an Asian actor. Alas, it was not to be. The comic-to-film adjustment seems to be a hard one for Asian roles to survive as demonstrated by the upcoming manga adaptation “Ghost in the Shell.” While the heroine is Japanese in the original text, Paramount planned to cast a white actress in the role from the very beginning. Margot Robbie was in early talks for the role before Scarlett JohansSEE WHITEWASHED, PAGE 8

‘The Great Wall’ undeservedly prompts whitewashing accusations By Anne Halliwell ahalliwe@indiana.edu @Anne_Halliwell

Amid a host of whitewashing accusations aimed at action franchises in the last few years, Zhang Yimou’s “The Great Wall” will debut to American audiences on Friday. Here’s why this particular action movie isn’t as bad as audiences may think. While “The Great Wall” has been slapped with the same whitewashed label as “Ghost in the Shell” and “Doctor Strange,” its critics are ignoring one major point to the contrary — Matt Damon’s role was written for a white actor. In adding the American actor to the multi-cultural cast, the director may have made

the first steps toward globalizing Asian stories and, hopefully, making more room for nonwhite actors in American cinema. Instead of appropriating an Asian character and subbing in a white actor, “Great Wall” director Yimou wrote Damon’s lead role for a European character as a way to make a film deeply rooted in Chinese culture accessible to a “world audience.” “The arrival of his character in our story is an important plot point,” Yimou told Entertainment Weekly shortly after the first trailer debuted in July. “There are five major heroes in our story, and he is one of them — the other four are all Chinese. The collective struggle and sacrifice of these heroes are the emotional heart of

our film. As the director of over 20 Chinese language films and the Beijing Olympics, I have not and will not cast a film in a way that was untrue to my artistic vision. I hope when everyone sees the film and is armed with the facts they will agree.” In the movie, set in a mythical past, Damon and “Game of Thrones” actor Pedro Pascal are introduced as European mercenaries on the hunt for a rare black powder in China. The two are drawn into a centuries-old conflict between man and monster when they reach the Great Wall and find a group of warriors preparing to battle a supernatural threat. Although Yimou says his casting fit the storyline he wanted, his choices may have bene more strategic than

visionary. Some critics posited the director may not have thought a film with Asian leads would appeal to an American audience or producers. After all, “The Great Wall,” with a budget of $150 million, is the most expensive movie ever shot in China. Historically, movie directors and producers tend not to fund films with nonwhite leads. Ridley Scott, who directed “Exodus: Gods and Kings” and populated the biblical Egyptian story with white actors, said he avoided casting people from the Middle East because the movie wouldn’t have been funded. “I can’t mount a film of this budget, where I have to rely on tax rebates in Spain, and say that my lead actor is

Mohammad so-and-so from such-and-such,” he told Variety in 2014. “I’m just not going to get it financed. So the question doesn’t even come up.” Yimou received criticism from television actress Constance Wu, who speaks out frequently about Asian visibility. “We have to stop perpetuating the racist myth that only a white man can save the world,” she wrote on Twitter. “Our heroes don’t look like Matt Damon.” According to early reviews by Variety and the Hollywood Reporter, Yimou’s intentions, good as they may have been, can’t rescue the movie entirely.

Adele after winning Album of the Year for “25” during the 59th Annual Grammy Awards at Staples Center on Sunday in Los Angeles.

Grammys gone wrong By Calie Schepp crschepp@umail.iu.edu @calierae9

The Grammy Awards alway have their fair share of accolades and activism, and this year was no different. The 2017 show, however, was also plagued by technical issues, unfortunate snubs and botched performances. Luckily, current musical icons like Adele, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga and more redeemed the night with exciting performances and passionate speeches. Adele opened the show with a performance of her hit “Hello” with near perfect vocals, as always, but when she came out for the second time to pay tribute to the late George Michael, something was off. “I’m sorry for swearing, and I’m sorry for starting again. Can we please start it again? I’m sorry,” said Adele, restarting the song. After the initial do-over, the British singer redeemed herself on the second attempt. Adele was just the first of

many pop queens to perform. Lady Gaga came ready to stun. She was rocking spikes, chains and fishnets galore. The singer-songwriter, who performed with Metallica at the show, made a red carpet entrance in an Alex Ulichny ensemble, complete with a barely there black leather jacket, patent leather shorts and shiny boots. Her outfit was a stark contrast from the bedazzled silver bodysuit she wore for her Super Bowl halftime show but worked well with the punk theme she upheld throughout the night. Newer artists also made quite an impression during the show. Chance the Rapper made history with his win for the first streaming-only album to be nominated and win a Grammy, specifically Best Rap Album. His performance and acceptance speech for Best New Artist, his second win, exuded passion and positivity. “Glory be to God. I claim this victory in the name of the Lord,” Chance said in his speech.

James Corden added a much-needed dose of humor to the show, and his highenergy personality suited the Grammys well. He worked in a “Carpool Karaoke” bit, and equipped with a cardboard automobile cutout, Corden scanned the crowd for musicians to participate in a song. While few of the bigger artists seemed to be into the joke, Corden’s savior appeared in Blue Ivy Carter, who waltzed over and saved the bit. The best performance of the night had to be Beyoncé‘s. Her set began with a long segment of stunning prerecorded visuals, putting Queen B’s pregnancy in the spotlight. She then performed incredible renditions of “Love Drought” and “Sandcastles,” complete with a large group of dancers and various elaborate set pieces. Her vocals were incredible, her outfit was dazzling, and her message was as poignant as ever. This year’s Grammys were packed with tributes, surprising wins and

passionate speeches. Bruno Mars brought down the house with a swoon-worthy tribute to Prince, and the bittersweet moments continued with multiple posthumous wins for David Bowie. Adele left with a whopping five Grammys total. She beat out albums like Ariana Grande’s pop powerhouse “Dangerous Woman” and a number of albums by newer artists. The biggest, most controversial snub of the night happened at the end of the show when Adele’s “25” beat Beyoncé‘s “Lemonade” for Album of the Year. She acknowledged that she wished “Lemonade” had won, and she even dedicated her award to Beyoncé. Between the snubs, surprises and jaw-dropping performances, this year’s show left viewers with a lot of emotions. The 2017 Grammys may not have been music’s most flawlessly executed night, but it was certainly the craziest.

son signed on, and it appears that an Asian actress was never seriously considered. This weekend’s release of “The Great Wall” brings whitewashing back into the conversation. In the film, Matt Damon plays a soldier who saves all of China from mysterious monsters. Although Damon was likely cast because the Chinese producers of the film thought that American audiences wouldn’t turn out for an Asian leading man, that’s a perception that has to change. Odds are good “The Great Wall” won’t break any American box office records anyway. It’s clear Hollywood has plenty of work to do regarding Asian actors and

roles, but it’s hard to recognize just how far-reaching the problem is. For example, the recent stop-motion film “Kubo and the Two Strings” was set in Japan and featured a number of Japanese characters, but most of the voice actors were white. Progress toward on-screen Asian roles may take precedence right now, but diversifying the entertainment industry needs to happen both in front of the camera and behind the scenes. What it comes down to is that Asian actors, from Middle-Eastern to Indian to Chinese, have been mistreated by the entertainment industry throughout history. Hollywood diversity is on everyone’s minds, but true progress won’t be made until we realize that it’s not just a black and white issue.

Yimou may have hit on something — a way to work Chinese characters and storylines into an entertainment sector that clearly prefers white narratives — with “The Great Wall.” While the movie may not solve all of the problems with Hollywood’s treatment of Asian characters and actors, it’s not making things worse, either.

IU alumna releases debut film By Sanya Ali siali@indiana.edu | @siali13

An IU alumna will soon offer a viewing of her first independent feature film, a movie revolving around race relations and told through the perspectives of children. “Lakota Girls,” a film coproduced by Molli Elliot Cameron and her husband, Russell, will be shown at 6:30 p.m. March 23 at Keystone Arts Theater. The film has already been released to the public but has yet to be screened in Indiana. Molli, also the director and writer for the film, graduated from IU in 1986 with a degree in business. She worked as a business owner in Indianapolis for years but said she always had the idea for this film in the back of her head. The script is based on the story of her great-grandmother, a white teacher who moved to South Dakota with her two sisters and married a Lakota

man. “My great-grandma went to South Dakota and married a Native American, which was very unusual at the time,” Molli said. “I was so interested in, first of all, what made my great-grandma leave Indiana and go to South Dakota 100 years ago, and what kind of woman was my great grandma that she would marry a Native American knowing that that would be socially difficult for both of them.” The film has already been awarded the People’s Choice Award at the Black Hills Film Festival in South Dakota and has been accepted into film festivals across the United States and Europe. Alexa Raye, Jessica Froelich and Carrie Barnthouse, professional actresses from Indiana, played the sisters in the film. The goal was that all the Native American characters would be portrayed accurately by members of the Lakota, which they were able to

do with the help of both professional actors and members of the tribe in South Dakota, Molli said. The family-friendly film was completed with the help of more than 100 people, including the 20 Lakota Native American actors. The co-leads in the roles of the child narrators were Tika Looking Horse and Clara, Molli’s daughter. The majority of filming took place in the Black Hills and Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. “I wanted all the native actors to be local actors, which makes it difficult because there are a few known actors who are Lakota,” Molli said. “I didn’t want to have actors who weren’t Lakota because the whole story is about Lakota.” To save money during filming, Molli said she lived with her mother-in-law in South Dakota and invited the Native American members of the cast and crew to stay with

the family. “That was a pretty interesting experience because, culturally, they are still different than the typical white family focused on what belongs to them versus sharing,” Molli said. “I think it was good for my children to experience that. What I had read and experienced came true with our interactions with them.” Molli said the experience of her first project being an indie film gave her the opportunity to experience a collaborative filmmaking environment, which differed from the Hollywood norm of divided production structure. “It’s nice to go through the whole process, have the script reading, discuss what we’re going to do and then to actually be there with the equipment and have them saying the lines,” Molli said. “The first day we shot, I thought, ‘Oh my god, they’re real. They’re real and talking and saying the lines.’”

THE ROOKIE ARTIST

At the Gucci Museo, fashion and artistry are synonymous By Adele Poudrier apoudrie@umail.iu.edu @adelepoudrier

The two most basic words one could use upon a visit to Florence to describe the city are “history” and “art.” Combined, these words become synonymous with fashion. While a single painting can be an artist’s great success, a designer is only as good as their latest line. A high-end brand like Gucci has been in the game for 96 years, and its way of creating art through handbags and attire has been required to evolve drastically in past years. I hadn’t realized Gucci had such humble beginnings in the quaint city of Florence. According to the Gucci Museo, founder Guccio Gucci was a lift boy at London’s Savay Hotel when a grand idea struck him to mix Italian craftsmanship with British sensibility to create luxury leather goods like never before. It came as a shock to think this high-end brand — I can’t even afford a key chain from its line — all began with a bellhop and a classy idea. As I turned the first corner of the museum, I felt as if I had stepped into a time machine,

as the world of rolling luggage and duffel bags rapidly vanished, and I saw vintage brown, boxy suitcases that I immediately imagined being carried by a 1930s woman dressed to the nines with silk gloves and pearls and preparing to voyage off to some spectacular place. As I moved from room to room I noticed Gucci is no different from a famous artist known for a signature quirk. It’s not just a classic logo or monogram print. It’s the timelessness of the attire and handbags. I kept imagining the gown on my left or the coat on my right being worn by bold, confident women throughout history. Gucci’s signature talent was knowing his audience. My thoughts were confirmed as I saw a dazzling silver, beaded, Gucci evening gown previously worn by Blake Lively and a chiffon gold dress that was worn by Jessica Chastain. It amazed me how nearly a century later the artistry of Gucci had maintained the luxurious feeling the liftboy imagined in 1921. I found myself dumbfounded thinking there are people who don’t consider

The Archives of African American Music and Culture will celebrate an important anniversary during Black History Month. The online publication Black Grooves, the AAAMC’s monthly periodical featuring reviews of African-American popular and religious music, will celebrate its 10th anniversary during February. Anna Polovick, senior and archival assistant for AAAMC, said the website provides the opportunity to celebrate the diversity within African-American music on both global and local scales. “Black Grooves is a really important publication, because there are not that many review websites that focus on all genres of African American music,” Polovick said. “Black Grooves covers new albums that are ubiquitous in pop culture, like recent releases by Solange, ‘A Seat At the Table,’ and Childish Gambino’s ‘Awaken My Love!’ but also puts a strong emphasis on indie music, not as popular genres and local music.” Entertainment is not the only focus of the music, and issues such as police brutality and the refugee crisis are among the many addressed by artists featured on the site. Polovick said the site allows for those voices trying to discuss these important issues a platform to do so. The distinctive voice of Black Grooves comes from a variety of sources, including professors, students and scholars across the country. As an ethnomusicology major, Polovick said she often gets asked what she wants to do as a career. The AAAMC has given her

the opportunity to discover what her career aspirations are, work in the field and develop a better understanding of the importance of music preservation. “My favorite part of working at the AAAMC for four years is that I’ve gotten to learn about a multitude of African-American genres and artists, and I’ve gotten to have a wide range of experiences,” Polovick said. “Some days I am accessioning music so we can have a record of each CD, 45, LP or cassette in our database. Other days I’m reading through old hip-hop magazines so we can summarize each issue and make them more readily available.” Polovick said she’s been writing for Black Grooves for four years and the experience has given her the opportunity to hone her writing and web skills, which she said are particularly valuable in an increasingly digital work landscape. “It’s wonderful to be able to tell future employers that I know how to upload items to a website, add pictures and hyperlinks and even work a little with HTML,” Polovick said. “I also contact publishers about featuring their artists’ works and follow up with them after we publish an article, which is a great insight into the music industry.” Polovick said she got her job at AAAMC after taking a class with now-retired professor Portia Maultsby and has found value in the experience four years later. “I’m so thankful that happened, and I’ve loved having the opportunity to study and learn so much about African-American music and culture while here at IU,” Polovick said. “I’m really going to miss it after I graduate this May.”

fashion to be art. In my opinion, the hardest job as an artist would be a designer. Fashion and style are everchanging, and while many artists aren’t acclaimed geniuses until after they die, for designers the time to shine is in the now or never. A successful brand requires approval of the public in the present. Fashion done right is a commitment to showing the change of men, women, society and even the world

through attire. It’s art that can be worn. It offers a perspective created by the most imaginative minds that embodies how you want to present yourself to the world. The brands that illustrate this true sense of artistry are similar to Gucci. They change with the times yet somehow hold on to an aesthetic that still resembles what the designer wanted to show the world way back when he was just a lift boy.

Bruno Mars performs in a tribute to Prince during the 59th Annual Grammy Awards at Staples Center on Sunday in Los Angeles.

Prince videos missing The 59th Annual Grammy Awards aired Sunday. Maybe you saw them. If you didn’t, Adele swept, Beyoncé got snubbed, and Chance the Rapper thanked God but not corporate America in his speech. Something else massive happened that day in the music world, and it’s infinitely more significant than the airing of an award show that, as far as I can tell, exists solely to trot out Little Big Town once a year. Prince’s Warner Bros. catalog was made available on all major streaming platforms. This is a step in the right direction but isn’t quite enough, much like the Grammys’ nod to Chance but ultimate reluctance to award Adele any fewer than five awards. While you can stream Prince’s music right now on Apple Music, Spotify and Amazon — and you should — you can’t watch his vast vault of music videos just yet, at least not legally. You can find a few here and there. The 1984 film “Purple Rain” is on YouTube right now and can be seen for $2.99. A bootleg

of “When Doves Cry” lives on Vimeo. Live performances owned by various venues and corporations exist across the web, but you can’t watch the entire trove of music videos in any single location. Draconic copyright law has seen unofficial uploads removed, and Prince’s estate has yet to drop the videography. Confession: I haven’t actually seen a single music video by Prince. I’m talking about his videos as if I have, but I’m really only parroting back what I’ve absorbed from reading about them. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only obsessive music fan who trolls the blogs, reviews, aggregators and NPR to explore my favorite hobby, and I’ll admit that those sources have been indispensable in guiding me to some of my favorite bands. However, while these sites are valuable guideposts, they can’t replace experiencing the actual art. Unfortunately, in the case of Prince’s videography, these media sources are currently the only option. Prince’s music videos were often intricate works of art every bit as iconic as those of

Michael Jackson or Madonna. His 1984 film, “Purple Rain,” isn’t a masterpiece, but it’s an amusingly overwrought and incredibly fun spectacle. While not technically a Prince video, the “Chappelle Show” sketch involving Charlie Murphy, the Artist and a surreal breakfast should be required viewing. Prince was one of the most visually oriented artists of his generation, so to engage with his art only through music without the spectacle of official live performances, music videos or any of his films, is to miss out on a huge facet of the Purple One. That absence of Prince’s videography isn’t just strange and disappointing, it’s also emblematic of a larger problem in today’s digital music environment. Prince always wanted absolute control of his catalogue. He was one of the only artists ever to own all of his own master tapes. Prince hired UK anti-piracy company Web Sheriff in 2007 to keep his material off of the internet entirely. But in removing massive parts of his music and video output, he arguably lost more

control of his music than he would have had he just left it all up. If Prince’s goal was to make sure people only ever approached his music on his own terms, he failed. His work didn’t speak for itself because it couldn’t speak for itself. After Prince’s death, there was a glut of articles telling us what Prince’s best visual work was, but because none of it could be reasonably accessed digitally, our opinion of it was mediated by a handful of bloggers who I imagine all live in Brooklyn, make their own artisan salsa and probably listen exclusively to Animal Collective b-sides. This probably wasn’t what Prince wanted. At last we can hear Prince’s best music — 1980’s “Dirty Mind” up through 1987’s “Sign o’ the Times” — without owning a record or CD player, but we still can’t watch his music videos. What else is a music geek supposed to watch now? The Grammys? Bryan Brussee bbrussee@indiana.edu @BryanBrussee

It’s been nearly a decade since Robert Downey Jr. blasted his way out of a cave as Iron Man, and the oversaturation of superhero spinoffs began. As Marvel and DC duke it out in the box office, a different battle wages on our television screens. Shows like “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” and DC’s “Arrow” are just as blandly enjoyable as viewers have come to expect from the studios that spawned them. Those wanting something a little darker can choose from Netflix’s more critically acclaimed “Defenders” shows. Even with the wide range of options, many of these series are annoyingly formulaic and unappealing to viewers who aren’t already superhero fans. So when it was announced that FX was adapting another “X-Men” comic series for television, critics and audiences alike heaved a sigh and resigned themselves to another moderately entertaining show about a misunderstood hero in a silly costume. Then somewhere along the way, everything changed. Perhaps it was when Noah Hawley of FX’s “Fargo” signed on as showrunner, and the series was suddenly in capable, unpredictable hands. Or maybe it was when Dan Stevens of “Downton Abbey” was cast as the mentally unstable lead, and Aubrey Plaza joined the show as his dangerously crazy pal. Or perhaps it took until the pilot episode aired in

full for people to realize that this was something entirely different and totally unprecedented. One thing is for sure. There has never, ever been a superhero show like “Legion.” From the very beginning, “Legion” is a maddening, multi-colored whirl of montages and flashbacks. The first montage introduces David Haller, a troubled youngster who becomes increasingly mentally unstable as he grows up. After an unsuccessful suicide attempt, Haller ends up in a mental hospital, where he’s diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia and heavily medicated. Haller’s time at the hospital takes a turn for the better when he meets new patient Sydney Barrett, and the two damaged blondes fall head over heels in love. Barrett’s particular psychosis prevents anyone from being able to touch her, which David originally accepts but ultimately struggles with. While “Legion” begins by framing Barrett and Haller as mere victims of mental illness, it quickly becomes clear that they aren’t just mentally unstable. They’re actually mutants — the “X-Men” designation for people with abnormal abilities — and the traits that have been mislabeled as illnesses are actually gifts. The first episode flashes back and forth between different time periods and scenarios that can be hard to follow, especially when punctuated with Haller’s hallucinations. If the main character can’t tell what’s real and what isn’t, the audience SEE LEGION, PAGE 11

W | PASTERNACK ON THE PAST Jesse Pasternack reviews films made before 1980 to expose readers to classics they might not normally watch.

‘Shaolin’ inspires action cinema “The 36th Chamber of Shaolin” is a technically brilliant movie from the legendary Shaw Studios. Its theme of resistance paired with exciting action sequences has influenced directors like RZA and Edgar Wright. Shaw Studios is one of the most influential movie studios of all time. Runme, Runje and Runde Shaw founded their studio in 1924, and it was a multinational conglomerate by the time their younger brother Run Run created their famous central studio in Hong Kong. “The 36th Chamber of Shaolin” follows Liu Yude, a student in a village oppressed by the Manchu government. After his family is killed, he flees to the Shaolin temple. Liu Yude becomes a monk named San Te and learns martial arts to fight back against the government. At the time of its creation,

Shaw Studios was the largest private film studio in the world. The Shaw Brothers and the studio they led are most famous for their martial arts films. Some of these films are available on Netflix, like “Five Element Ninjas ” and “The 36th Chamber of Shaolin.” A particularly devoted fan of these films is Quentin Tarantino, who used its opening logos and fanfares in “Kill Bill: Volume 1.” “The 36th Chamber of Shaolin” has some great kinetic cinematography. Arthur Wong and Yeh-tai Huang make great use of fast zooms to create excitement. The stationary shots are well composed and have a zen-like sense of beauty. The editing in “The 36th Chamber of Shaolin” is also excellent. The fast cuts make the fights more exhilarating, and they are tempered with slow-motion scenes that add

to the overall drama. Gordon Liu is thrilling to watch in his fight scenes as San Te. He does a great job of conveying his transformation from naive student to skilled warrior monk. San Te’s training sequences are more fun to watch because the watcher knows Liu would go on to play the mentor Pai Mei in “Kill Bill: Vol. II.” The most outspoken fan of “The 36th Chamber of Shaolin” is Wu-Tang Clan frontman RZA. He used English dialogue samples from the movie on the album “Enter The Wu-Tang Clan — 36 Chambers.” He said the story of struggling against an oppressive government resonated with him as a black kid. “The 36th Chamber of Shaolin” was also an influence for “Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.” Wright said he made his entire cast watch the film because both films

share a similar view of martial arts as an arduous yet exuberant form of fighting. “The 36th Chamber of Shaolin” is one of the most memorable martial arts

films that the Shaw Brothers ever made. The cinematography and editing sear the fast fights into your brain. It has influenced great artists and will likely continue to

inspire young filmmakers for years to come.

sarily trippy territory, but Haller is compelling enough to anchor the more surreal sequences. Stevens brings his usual intensity to the role but tempers it with surprising charm and vulnerability. Haller’s most impressive scenes happen late in the episode when he realizes just how dangerous he can be, but Stevens is at his best in quiet moments opposite Sydney (Rachel Keller) in the

mental ward. “Legion” is a visual masterpiece, from the intricate, surreal sets to the colorful, strangely mod costuming — think Wes Anderson’s darker, creepier cousin. The visual effects are equally impressive, and a scene where Haller accidentally levitates the entire contents of his kitchen stands up to anything seen in a big budget superhero blockbuster. The confounding, psy-

chedelic nature of “Legion” may not be for everyone, but such is always the case with groundbreaking television. Dragons and incest aren’t for everyone, yet “Game of Thrones” is a global phenomenon. Smoke monsters and mysterious flashforwards weren’t everyone’s cup of tea, yet “Lost” transfixed audiences for six seasons. There’s a certain type of series that can transcend genre and become manda-

tory viewing for everyone from sorority sisters to grandparents. Critics love them, viewers worship them, and they rise beyond labels like “supernatural” or “fantasy” series. “Legion” is that kind of show. It may not be the next “Game of Thrones,” but to compare “Legion” to “The Flash” or even “Daredevil” is to brand it as something it’s not. Hawley is batting in the

big leagues with this one in a way no superhero show has done before. So even if the star-spangled heroics of “The Avengers” and the gritty violence of DC vigilantes aren’t for you, give “Legion” a chance. It may not be a smooth ride, but the best rollercoasters never are.
