Thank you, Mr. Mansharamani for this informative My Turn. I read it with fear and disbelief. Having no children or grandchildren in college, I was completely ignorant of what was going on in some of our most prestigious universities. Fear because I am sick at heart to see that academia is not progressing the demise of segregation in this country but regressing it. Now we aren’t only segregating Black people, but each nationality by giving them each their own graduation.

This all started when we started saying Hispanic Americans, Mexican Americans, Chinese Americans, Japanese Americans etc. I suppose since I’m of French, Canadian, Arcadian descent, I could call myself like that. But although that is my ancestry, I am, and my parents after they became naturalized were, all American. We are the United States of America. This country includes in its borders all colors. Too many men, women and children have died during the Revolutionary War and Civil War to give us this land as a united country. And far too many have died to prevent it from falling into the hands of foreign countries. It will only remain that way if we unite and become one again.
