LSU Reveille blogging

The Reveille is usually a crapshoot. Yesterday I came away with nothing worth noting. Today however was packed with information including this column that I tend to agree with. The racial tensions have been high all year long with things coming to a climax during football season when the purple and gold Confederate Navy Jack was protested against vigorously by numerous black student organizations. This semester started off with a bang when the leader of these black student movements: Collins Phillips was hit with several campus sanctions, ironically by a black school official who had previously backed Phillips' efforts. The charges have since been dropped but hopefully this will not continue to be a dividing issue on our campus.
