In the Nov. 14 issue of The Pioneer, we published a political opinion column, “Trick’s Take,” that gives one student’s perspective on the issue of diversity. While the column reflected the opinions of the writer, and the Pioneer takes great pride in providing a forum for all students to express their opinions, The Pioneer does not support any political perspective, and strives to be a neutral, unbiased entity.
That being said, this week, we are publishing an opposing viewpoint about diversity in America in order to reflect as many student points of view as possible. We also invite other students to share their views on diversity or other issues of importance to them, either through a letter to the editor, or by submitting a column to The Pioneer at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will do our best to publish as many as we receive, space permitted. Please keep the columns from 350-450 words and letters to the editor under 200 words.
Finally, we apologize for publishing the Nov. 14 “Trick’s Take” column without attribution for the quotes that were used. They were generalized thoughts rather than quotations from specific people.
