Title

Opinion "Has It Cracked Yet?"

Description

This opinion piece, published on April 29, 1960 is a response to an editorial, "A Crack in the Wall" from a previous issue. This piece responds to a letter that accused the Collegian of, "having set down an irrational opinion without thinking it through." This piece clarifies and reasserts the claims, made by Dr. A. T. Harris from Virginia State College, that black students would avoid protesting if there was "a crack in the wall" of segregation. They also argue that white college students should support the demonstrations made by black students in favor of segregation and assert that these demonstrations are "morally right." The reference to "sit-down demonstrations" likely refers to the Richmond 34.
