    Omaha man dted for alcohol
and marijuana possession
After a man lying in his front
yard ran from University of
Nebraska-Lincoln police offi
cers, he was given a citation.
Assistant Police Chief Mylo
Bushing said officers saw
Omahan Kim Edwards, 21, tying
in the front yard of the home at
3248 Starr St at 2 a.m.
Officers went up to Edwards
and could smell a strong odor of
alcohol, Bushing said.
When officers began check
ing Edwards for weapons, he
ran north between two houses
and fell, where officers
approached him again,
Bushing said.
Bushing said Edwards was
taken to Cornhusker Place
Detox where a bag of marijuana
was found in his pockets.
Edwards was then issued a
citation for possession of less
than one ounce of marijuana.

Blacks: Racism still exists
■ Panelists and audience
members tell stories of
discrimination in Nebraska.
Some people say the state of
Nebraska and the city of Lincoln
aren't friendly places to live.
And UNL isn't the most
friendly college campus, accord
ing to the stories told by a group
of blacks at a law panel discus
sion in the East Union Thursday.
Panel and audience mem
bers told their stories of racism,
discrimination and ignorance in
Nebraska, the city of Lincoln and
at UNL
They told stories of security
guards following blacks around
grocery stores while they shop,
of waiting at a red stoplight and
seeing the white person in the
car next to them locking their car
doors, and stories about the
racial profiling training Lincoln
police officers go through.
The law panel, which was
sponsored by the Midlands
Black Law Students Association,
identified the issues facing
blacks in Nebraska.
Earl Key, president of the
MBLSA, invited NU Regent
Drew Miller to the panel discus
Miller was criticized by uni
versity officials and UNL stu
dents for comments he made
about recruitment of minority
students at the March 3 Board of
Regents meeting.
Key said he wanted Miller to
understand why Miller's com

ments were hurtful and that
everyone needs, to understand
the issues.
‘In 2001, people don't
understand that racism is still
going on,” Key said.
‘Who in this room thinks the
University of Nebraska is com
mitted to diversity?” said Earl
Key, as the crowd kept silent
The law panel, rribderated by
Ben Gray, the host of KETV's
‘Kaleidoscope” program, fea
tured Edna Atkins, Douglas
County Court judge, T.J.
McDowell, director of The
Lighthouse, Velda Ford, assis
tant professor of nursing at
Creighton University, Leroy
Stokes, president of the NAACP
Lincoln, William Thompkins,
president and CEO of the Urban
League of Nebraska, and Rev. Dr.
Michael Combs, pastor of Mt.
Zion Baptist Church and UNL
political science professor.
Combs defined racism and
spoke of what it was like being
He said whites don’t know
what it is like to be the only black
child in a classroom, and they
have a bad habit of assuming all
minority groups are die same.
“Lincoln has not been a
friendly environment for me,”
Combs said.
“My family and I dread going
out to dinner because we know
someone, somehow is going to
discriminate against us.”
Combs said he was tired of
people talking about what hap
pened in 1960s.
“Racism didn’t stop. It is the
use of power by those who have
power to deny others their indi
vidual rights,” Combs said, as
the crowd erupted in applause.
One of the most emotional
points in the discussion came
from Jon Hatemi, a law student
and a member of the MBLSA, as
he told of the discrimination in a
video he viewed during one of
his law class at UNL
In the video, two white
lawyers were discussing the
numerous things wrong about
“those educated black boys.”
Because Hatemi was afraid
of what might happen to his
made in the class if he spoke up,
he kept quiet during class.
When Hatemi questioned
the professor about the video
after class, the professor said it
was "an educational video.”
“An educational video?”
Hatemi said in disbelief as he
started to cry.
People question why there
isn’t a white law students associ
ation, he said.
“This is the white law stu
dents association,” said Hatemi,
as he paused to regain the
strength in his voice.
“I go to school everyday in
the white law students associa
William Thompkins, presi
dent and CEO of the Urban
League of Nebraska, encouraged
all blacks to come together and
“get busy."
“If we can get hyped about
Big Red then we can get hyped
about issues that concern us,"
Thompkins said.
“Let’s make it happen. Let’s
get it done."

potential to help large and small

Sen. Jim Jensen of Omaha
also said the bill could aide*
many Nebraskans.
"I do believe in the philoso
phy that consolidation can be a
good thing," he said.
Sorting through all of the
legal riddles, though, could be
tough, he said.
Wickersham of Harrison
tried to shed light on some of the
legal mysteries by guaranteeing
his fellow lawmakers that small
communities would have
"absolute veto power" when it
came to joining with other cities.
Chambers wasn't convinced
that lawmakers could sort out
the legal wrangling anytime
He hinted the senators had
only a limited amount of time
left to work with and reminded
them the constitutional amend
ment didn't force senators to do
The discussion could get so
complicated that Chambers
equated the debate with a per
son trying to design a triangle
with four sides.
"Were going to end up with
somebody trying to square a dr- .
de," he said.
