Students packed the Stackel Room in Wilson Commons last Thursday, Jan. 22 for an emergency Minority Student Advisory Board Town Hall meeting in light of a controversial article about racial segregation in Messenger Magazine. The discussion was primarily over the content and possible solutions.
President of MSAB and senior Brittany Carter called the emergency Town Hall meeting in response to the article in question. Messenger Magazine is an opinion-based publication published once a semester.
The article, titled ‘The Problem of Reverse Segregation at the U of R,” criticized minority organizations of ‘reverse segregation.”
‘Reverse segregation happens when minority students choose to interact with other minority students despite the majority (75 percent) white student population,” the article said.
