UT To Sponsor Diversity Forum

(Toledo, OH) There will be a community forum held at UT's Driscoll Center on Thursday, December 1 at 7:30 PM. The meeting will last approximately 90 minutes, and is open to the public. The October 15 riot will be one of the major topics of the evening.

There will be a series of speakers giving 8-10 minute presentations on a variety of topics, and the floor will be opened to dialogue after the scheduled speakers.

The goals of the forum are as follows:
We hope that, through direct interaction and constructive dialogue with one another we can begin to get past our shared internal biases and prejudices, and to begin seeing each other for who we really are; furthermore, we hope to cultivate an appreciation for one another as individuals and members of our community as a whole.

For more information, please contact Craig Wescoe.

That would be a very good start if...

If those that could/would benefit most would only attend.

The problem is that those that could/would benefit most aren't likely to show up voluntarily.

Isn't that always the case?

Just ask any grade school teacher on parent-teacher conference day...

No "real" whites will show up, because any white person asking an honest question in a public forum will get shouted down and intimidated by loudmouth minority thugs or the political "reverends" that infest the black community. The only whites showing up will be the diversity cheerleaders or those who married outside their race.

How do you define "real" whites, Mr. Anonymous?
