Subject: Students of Color at Hamline protest unrepresentative curriculum and oppressive campus atmosphere

Forty students of color and allies at Hamline protested last thursday (March 3rd) at their Student Congress on the differential treatment given to the study of jewish and indian immigration in the sociology class “Racial and Cultural Minorities”, which fullfill’s Hamline’s cultural breadth requirement, and the ensuing charges that multiculturalism in academia is really “reverse discrimination”, and broke quorum by having Student Congress reps quit the meeting.
