Thanks for those who came out to last night’s meeting, where the general body elected Malcolm Douglas as the Freshman Representative for the class of 2014. To those interested, many of the committee chairs (seniors especially) are looking for general body members interested in their positions that will help them as their understudy and take their place after graduation.

Nominations are still being taken to fill the last open Executive Board position, Freshman representative. If you want to nominate yourself or someone else, send an email to the BSU account at bsu@jhu.edu. Elections will occur in the next couple of weeks.

Anyone interested in writing for Perspectives can email me, Michael, at mhiggin8@jhu.edu or attend our weekly meetings Tuesdays at 9:00 in Charles Commons. The topic of our first issue of the year will be “PWIs vs. HBCUs: The Future of Education in Black America.”

Here is another article about the quickness with which the media, in the case and in others, will often misportray events.

Do you think that that Sherrod should take the job and if you have followed the controversy, what do you think of the coverage it has gotten?
