I read with interest the letter to the editor by the chairperson of the Black Student Union, Monique Terry, defending the Black Student Union.This lead me to ask the question; in this day and age, when the catch word of the day is,”Diversity” and “inclusiveness”, why then is there a need for a “Black”, “Asian”,”Latino”,”Gay&Lesbian”(etc) Student Union? It would seem college campuses do more to divide people then to unite. Why do people want to single out people by race, creed,national origion, and gender orientation? If we are so enlightened, why is there not just one Student Union that includes everyone, and lets everyone be heard? Imagine the money and resources that could be saved and invested in real diversity.Just asking.
