Title

Rudeness Is Apalling
The Collegian

Description

This letter to the editor, written by Gail Lush, criticized the University of Richmond’s decision to place a student, Eva Wong, on probation after she defied policy and brought a black guest to the Westhampton College Song Contest. Lush was appalled by the discriminatory practices of the University of Richmond administration, faculty, and student body. Lush criticized how people talk of world peace, yet see people only in regards to their country and not as other individuals. She hoped the backlash the university received for this incident would result in greater hospitality and interaction with different people.
