Student and domestic violence survivor Miriam Woods explains how IU and an IDS column mis-attribute anger management to abusive behavior
I would like to bring to the attention of the IDS the fact that harassment of disabled students occurs regularly at IU-Bloomington.
I am glad you chose to publish an ?article on the Bloomington Planned Parenthood. Let me explain why.
Ferguson, Missouri is — pardon the unintended pun – a moving target. Events keep taking erratic directions, superseding comment as fast as it’s written. So I’ll open with context as of this writing: After a week of combat in the streets, governor Jay Nixon has ordered Missouri’s National Guard out to, as his office says in a statement, “help restore peace and order and to protect the citizens of Ferguson.”
Over the past week, eyes around the world have been on Fergson, Missouri. There have been protests and candle light vigils every night since Aug. 9. Some of the protests have turned violent with police firing teargas and rubber bullets at both protesters and reporters, and looting by some of the protesters. The protests and vigils were sparked after police killed an unarmed teenager shortly after noon on Saturday, Aug. 9 as the teen was walking away from the police with his hands in the air pleading, “Don’t shoot, I’m not armed.”
I was extremely disappointed and angered upon reading the column “Opera is a white man’s game.”
We have experienced bullying from our landlord. And we’ve had enough.
Sometimes in journalism, just as in politics, it’s easiest to go for the lowest-hanging fruit.
About 80 percent of the substantiated acts of child abuse and neglect in Indiana are committed by parents or family members.
You can’t expect a bunch of faculty to agree about much, but the main
goal on which we concur is the renewal of an intellectually rich culture
Being that I am a female who attended a public middle school and am now a
freshman in college, I completely understand the reason for this change
in the dress code. At that age, bodies are changing into their more
adult shapes, and boys and girls are discovering their sexuality.
We don’t go around shaming people for wearing tight shirts, so we shouldn’t go around shaming them for tight pants.
Letters to the editor
Columnist Matt Straw recently wrote an article in support of former
Green Jobs “czar” Van Jones. Straw mentioned that the main reason why
some in the media pressured Van Jones to resign: He called Republicans
But that was only one of many controversial comments Van Jones has made.
I have been fan of all Hoosier sports for four years now. I am a senior
and have attended nearly every football and basketball game, and I can
honestly say I love this University.
I do have one big concern regarding football.
I’m loving IU, but this place is a far cry from Nappanee, Ind.
It was nice to be reminded of how important Kelley students are while
watching one of the wealthiest and most influential Americans on
On Friday President Obama announced that his administration would be imposing 35 percent tariffs on imported Chinese tires.
In response to Edward Delp’s Opinion page column on Duke in the April 19th issue of the IDS (“Endgame at Duke”). While it is unfortunate that anyone is wrongfully prosecuted or presumed guilty as Edward Delp points out his Opinion page article of April 19th, it’s hard to imagine that many minority readers – particularly Blacks, Hispanics, and more recently those of Middle Eastern descent were not thinking “welcome to my world.” Although I am a white male, we are a group that if now presumed guilty until proven innocent, has only recently joined that club. The Japanese during WWII certainly were presumed guilty, and many other minorities have received less than equal treatment before the law. Likewise, if the Duke players had been poor white males instead of wealthy white males, does Mr. Delp really believe they would have been better off? I would doubt it. While wrongful prosecution can ruin lives, wealthy white males are not its only victims.
April 19, columnist Edward Delp wrote that the prosecution of the Duke Lacrosse Team was a sign of “reverse racism” (“Endgame at Duke”). And because of this racism, District Attorney Nifong would have to “eat crow” – weeks after the accuser dropped charges. Well, there is a food worse than crow. Silence. And there are millions of sexual assault survivors chewing that food right now. The column encourages them to swallow, and choke.\nDistrict Attorney Nifong followed procedure. He believed the complainant as long as she was still willing to prosecute, and kept the case together as long as was possible. How was he at fault?\nThe public climate to which the columnist referred was actually a secondary reaction to the initial response of the University. For months after the allegations, the lacrosse team was unsuspended and not investigated because the players were “good [read rich, white] boys.” Good [read rich, white] boys don’t rape. The public reacted to this blatant lie, not individual lacrosse players.\nProtestors criticized the American institution of racist sexual exploitation. Whether or not an assault took place, the lacrosse team specifically requested two African American strippers for their party. Perhaps they believed the seventeenth century propaganda that black women were inherently more licentious than white women, and subject to white men’s desires. The lacrosse team represented white male privilege, and that privilege over brown bodies was on trial in the public domain, as it should have been. \nLet me remind you that this public trial was not “reverse racism,” as there was no power structure to blindly enforce any hypothetical prejudice. The team members had a fair trial. In contrast, the trees of this state are fertilized by the blood of defendants in unfair trials. That’s racist. \nFinally, the columnist warns that, if we are not careful, this could happen here. How convenient that he encourages women not to speak in the middle of National Sexual Assault Awareness Month (Little Five Weekend, no less). For every person who steps forward, there are fourteen women who don’t. The real travesty is that the outcome of this very public trial encourages those fourteen to stay in the shadows, choking on silence to avoid “eating crow.”
