TO THE EDITOR:
As a former editorial board member, I was taken aback by the recent "The Institute of Politics is more than just a 'resume booster." The piece is fluff, little more than an advertisement.
The purpose of the editorial board is to criticize, to attack the fundamental structures of the university that marginalize and oppress. The edit board has decided to ignore the various crises plaguing the University in favor of patting scholarship kids on the back. The edit board ought be no one's friend. It must punch with the weight of the paper. It must be gutsy and risky.
When I penned the infamous "White Men Need Safe Spaces," I wanted to offend in order to start a conversation about the violence of specific forms of white masculinity.
