As an alum from the 1980s, when the school was mostly white and male, I appreciate this “contrarian” position. I agree with many of the points, especially the escalation by the students and the impoliteness and crassness of their exposition. The fact is that CMC is an incredibly sheltered learning environment; much more so than most other colleges and universities. I find it very hard to believe that the frustrations and criticisms of some of the students are actually to the level they espouse or as widespread as they claim. I mean, did this stuff happen when I was there? Did people of color feel marginalized; or not included, supported, and respected? I don’t know since I’m a white boy, but I’d bet the answer is “no.” That is not to say that I don’t welcome progress. Quite to the contrary, I’m happy the school has become more progressive and inclusive. But the fact remains that I and my similarly situated CMC classmates were (at that time) and are (now) considerate and compassionate. We had a great time and could laugh at ourselves, act like fools, have fun, and study like crazy. I don’t remember anyone acting racist or better than a person of color (although I’m sure it did happen). None of us ever looked at a black, Asian, or Latino classmate in any way other than simply as equal member of the student body. That doesn’t mean that we were insensitive to cultural differences; rather we simply didn’t care about the differences. I was disappointed and dejected when my daughter was rejected for admission to CMC last year. With what’s going on there now, I feel less so.

We don’t even know how or why he failed the test yet everyone is acting like he is some skid row junky.________________________________________You miss the point. He was already suspended for doing something and the idiot is stupid enough to do it again!!And anyone who has an addiction to drugs or alcohol, or even cigarettes is similar to skid row junkies in that they can’t control their urge to do them. The stuff controls them. It’s sad, to me.
