Discrimination Northern Style)
. James Meredith, a 29 year old Negro,
until recently refused admission to the
University of Mississippi, presents a
unique situation to the University of Ne
braska. The Governor of Mississippi used his
power to thwart directly the power of
the federal government And once again
the South has realized that it lost the
Civil War and the fight for states' rights.
However, ia the North, we continnally
point aa accusing finger at "those prej
udiced Southerners." But is it a hypo
critical finger? Many at the University
of Nebraska think it is.
An assistant professor of history
feels, "It is hard to say that equality
and justice exist at the University and
in the state of Nebraska. We cannot say
that students are not discriminated
against because of their background," he
B the federal government enforces
Integration la the Sosta, why doesn't it
enforce it aere?" he questioned.
He also stated, "We are indeed hypo
crits if we give charity only to "Thunder"
Thornton and Willie Ross."
A University professor in the political
science department feels, "Due to the ex
tremely small number of colored stu
dents on this campus, their situation is
unusually aggravated. I do not feel the
colored student is so much discriminat
ed against as he is discriminated for,"
commented the professor.
"The fact still remains, however, dis
erimiaatioa does occar en this campas,"
Continuing, be explained, "Not so
much the Southern type of discrimination,
but rather our own unique Northern prej
udice." "The white students on this campus
make it extremely difficult for the col
ored student to adjust," he said. "It
seems a silent wall exists between white
and colored students a waD which
neither will cross," the professor said.
These are very interesting points and
deserve some serious reflection. C a 1 d
these be a valid criticism? Have these
points forbidden ground in daring to ques
tion the University and its students?
The position of the Administration is
more restrained, however. Speaking to
Sigma Xu fraternity Monday night, Dean
Hallgren expressed a hope "that as we
have no serious prejudice problem at the
University, nothing like what has hap
pened at Mississippi is expected at Ne
braska." University students, however, seem
to agree with the two professors. A
- sophomore, who is a Greek, feels, "There
is some question as to the exact status
of the colored students on this campus."
Continuing, he pointed out, "It is evident
that certain organizations do not give
equal treatment to the colored student."
A senior ia Arts and Sciences had
this to say: "The colored student is cer
tainly discriminated against ia neaiiy aO
phases of social life at the University."
"When was the last time you saw a
colored student at an activity meeting?
At Kings? At a bouseparty?" the student
This senior also felt that the colored
student is handicapped even when dating.
"Just who do they date and just where
could they go a show?" said this fel
low. Where do the University and its stu
dents stand on discrimination? Is it for
bidden land that shouldn't be discussed?
Shouldn't we "Look first to our own
bouse" before we point at others?
Collegiate Press Freedom
Have yoo ever bad one of those days
when just nothing has gone right?
The editor of the Colorado Daily, of
ficial newspaper of the University of Col
