Attention Colleague Bill Herman: The Center for Communication, Inc. Use to Be a Gold Mine of Support for D:F/M Students

Sunday, October 12th, 2014

Regarding your fm-l post about the “great” programs of the Center for Communication, Inc. Copy of your post is below. But first, history and context.

Shouldn’t students be informed about the demise of the innovative relationship between the department and the Center for Communication, Inc. when it scheduled numerous panels and events on the Hunter campus, mostly but not exclusively, in the Lang Auditorium, for the benefit of students – and not just those D:F/M majors – so that they didn’t have to trek so much around the city to Center events? For a department with no imagination and no funding for programming for students, the Center relationship was a blessing.

The Chair knows the history. Maybe he might share.

Justice for the Central Park Five – Justice for All

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014

By FreidaPeople Stat posting on Raymond Santana’s Facebook Page:

Lynn, with all due respect, the tragedy is these boys got railroaded at every step of the way and the media was happy to support their presumption of guilt based on their skin color. The tragedy is that even to this day, people insist on smearing their character as men. The tragedy is that even when Black and brown people are completely innocent, there is a presumption of guilt.

The tragedy is that most of the people in this world still won’t believe the lesson this whole thing teaches us. Crime is not based on skin color and cops are not here to protect or serve children of color from poor communities. I applaud the men I have come to know a bit. In spite of all the harm our racist system inflicted on these kids, they became pillars of society and great role models. The system took their youth, but never their integrity. Can’t wait until all the files are unsealed.

Justice for the Central Park Five. Justice for all.


FreidaPeople Stat posts regularly on Facebook and I and many, many others consider her opinions pretty much Gospel.
