Campus Activism

Over the past year few years, stories of racism on college campuses and the perceived lack of university response has caused a wave of young people to take matters into their own hands. Students at the University of Missouri brought down two members of the campus administration by boycotting the student union and refusing to play a lucrative football game.

All of my adult life,college campuses have been areas of intellectual freedom.. That`s why many objection to their protests... They protested the Vietnam War.. They protest rape on campuses.. .They protest all manor of society`s ills..The problem is.. Those in opposition to Free Speech,and civic duty,are usually in favor of the policy being protested.. Gov. Ronald Reagan, quit funding free college tuition in California,because it just created more Liberals..We`ve seen the spin off of his policy,all over the country.. State Tuition funding has been cut...That makes the students the CUSTOMER..College like any other business,should be responsive to it`s CUSTOMERS..As for me,I don`t want colleges to turn out goose stepping zombies.. Our future leaders will be coming from those ranks...We should expect greatness..
