MUB display evokes strong emotions (Lisa Arsenault, Chelsea Conaboy and Liz Kenny, 5//11/02, The New Hampshire)
A display centered around the words of John Lennon, saying, "Woman is the N***er of the World" was hung on the public wall space on the third floor of the MUB Thursday morning. Less than eight hours later the words were gone.

"THINK! All struggles are not the same. But the main struggle is for equality!" replaced the display around 6:30 p.m. on Thursday. The original display included the statements, "Rape is to sexism as lynching is to racism" and "N***er: A disparaging term for any member of a socially, politically or economically disadvantaged class of persons." It was put together by a group of UNH students affiliated with the UNH Chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW), which is not a UNH-affiliated student organization, with sponsorship from the Presidents Commission on the Status of Women.

Which, combined with the story below, raises the question : are UNH students stupid, insensitive, or trapped in a world where you're required to be hypersensitive to the emotions of every special interest group known to man (or wymyn)? Posted by Orrin Judd at May 12, 2002 9:31 AM
