Talk of Racism Should Focus on Real Issues

If I were to write a column about racism at MIT, I'd probably talk a bit about racism on campus ["Protesters' Claims About Racism at MIT Are on Target," by Teresa Huang '97, May 9].

And "Rhino Man" doesn't count - it's a comic strip about a rhino in a suit. If "Rhino Man" is "not the most racist of things in the MIT community," please, tell us what is. "What about all those Asians struggling to gain recognition in fields like journalism or entertainment?" Well, what about them? What about Belle and Sebastian? Please, more columns about Lawrence, Deebank, Duffy, et al, and less about crap.
