Is Dialogue Enough to Address Anti-Affirmative Action Poem at Tufts?

SHARE

To address an anti-affirmative action poem published in Tufts University's conservative journal The Primary Source, the student government held a forum this weekend. But some argue that dialogue isn't enough to address the poem, a satirical rip-off of "O Come All Ye Faithful," translated into the voice of a fictional admissions officer pleading "O Come All Ye Black Folk." "The time for dialogue with the Primary Source ended years ago," writes one commenter on the Tufts Daily's website. "If you want change, force it. Throw the papers away, burn them, send copies to parents, donors, news outlets." Other suggestions, raised during the community meeting, include pulling the journal's funding.
