Dublin Core

Title

Column "Fubar is Frank"

Description

This column was published in The Collegian and it discusses an event in which a robot, Fubar, visited the campus for the school's Homecoming week. The robot has some national acclaim as it had been featured on "Good Morning America," "Silver Spoons," and "The Merv Griffin Show." The robot was asked to predict the outcome of a football game with Northeastern, and in its response the term "beaner" was used twice. Beaner is an offensive racial slur used against Mexicans.
