On differences that cause people not to get along . . .
Students are alienated because they find themselves in a situation where academically it’s all they can do to keep their nose above water if they can do that. And then there’s someone there to tell them that this is all due to the white power structure. Then there are the white students who are sick of hearing that. They say if you can’t handle that, that’s your problem. Don’t give us this junk. And that’s called insensitivity.
It’s also self-reinforcing.
