    300 cars and no mention of campus security interfering, doesn’t make sense. Having 200 cars just riding through your campus, unattended sound like there was collusion with the administration. Why were 200 cars, shouting individuals, allowed on the campus?

  2. Dr. Carlos J. Minor says:

    It may not have been collusion but it was certainly reckless indifference. My time in the academy was marred by racism such as this. The Executive Vice President held the opinion that some people are raised to be racist and Black people should try and understand that. When does this end????
