I hope everyone enjoyed and gained some new information from the "Discrimi-Nation" series that ran in this section for the past few weeks. My intention in creating the series was for people on this campus to gain a better understanding of the many different people around them. The diversity of our ca...

In Chrystal King's "Discrimi-Nation: African-Americans" article, she accurately described the plight of African-American students growing up and attending schools where, to see another face like theirs, is scarce. I too encountered situations of being forced to speak for an entire race when controversial is...

I want to commend the Sundial for its series on "Discrimi-Nation." The first two essays, by Chrystal King and Maria Martinez, were elegantly written, deeply insightful, and emotionally powerful. They both raised provocative questions about issues of race and ethnicity in this community and university th...

Dear Editor, ? In the article "Tattoos," Patrick Berry displays writing on his arm that he claims is "Ezekiel 25:27."? There's no verse 27 in chapter 25 of Ezekiel.?The words he has chosen are chapter 25, verse 17.? I teach my students the value of research so they won't be like Mr. Berry, who will we...

Response to MEChA advisers letter

October 29, 2007

I am very disturbed by the MEChA advisor's letter regarding the U.S. Army's activities on campus on Oct. 18. Her attempt at propaganda is so blatant and obvious that it is sophomoric. There are so many items in it that are, or should be, offensive to anyone who cares to read the letter. I scarcely kn...

I would like take the time to thank each and every member of the CSUN AIDS Walk Coalition. Last Sunday, you woke up early, put on your walking shoes and took steps toward eliminating ignorance and raising funds for AIDS awareness and research. This year, the AIDS Walk coalition consisted of 19 teams, no...

I am very disturbed by the Oct. 18 Daily Sundial front page. I am not as distressed by what is exposed as by what has been blatantly omitted. The main article on the upper part of the page, "U.S. Army event arrives on campus to recruit students," is a decontextualized account of what the author sees as...

Your recent article ("Despite U.N. Embargo, arms readily to Myanmar military junta") on foreign supplies and suppliers of weapons in Myanmar failed to mention the increasingly prominent role of the "non-state actor" in arms trafficking. The United Nations has used the term "non-state actor" to descri...

As an undergraduate student here at CSUN, I am awfully saddened by the decision made last Thursday by the AS committee with regards to providing support for their own constituents. What makes me sad is that AS has indisputably violated the AS Constitution. The AS Constitution clearly States, "?to provide f...

Dear Editor, It is clear to me that nothing in life is worth was it used to be. This must certainly be the case for Al Gore to win a Nobel Peace prize.? After all, Al Gore is a politician which just about guarantees anything that he says is a lie - and the British government agrees!? In?the article "Global ...
