I am writing this letter in response to many other letters written in the past week concerning discrimination on the UA campus. Every time I read one, the same issues are brought up. It is usually a situation where someone or some people have been picking on someone else because of a difference. The difference may be color, gender, sexual orientation, religious affiliation or any other distinguishing characteristic about a HUMAN BEING. Isn't it ironic that if you examine yourself, you will fit in every one of these categories. Every person on this planet is a minority in their own special way. So this leads me to the question,"Why are we judgmental toward others when we are all different?"
As a concerned student and Undergraduate Senator, I have decided to bring together a group that will meet on Fridays for a brown bag lunch discussion. This week's topic will be on discrimination. I encourage all students to attend because this topic pertains to all of us.
If you or anyone you know might be interested in being a panel member, please contact me at ASUA. The meeting will be on Friday Oct. 28 in Student Union Room 280. Hope to see you there!
