Title

Editorial "Donations cause discrimination"

Description

In this University of Richmond Collegian editorial, written in response to “actor-entertainer” Bill Cosby donating $20 million to Spelman College, white student Rick Mayes attempts to argue that if all-white institutions and organizations are racist, then so are all-Black institutions. He further claims that he has experienced racism at the E. Bruce Heilman Dining Center from several of the Black employees, who see him as a stereotypical white student at the University of Richmond. His friend Harvey Whitney, a Black student, claims that Black organizations are a way to preserve identity. Although generally in agreement, Mayes still argues that all-Black colleges and organizations indirectly promote racism.
