Re: Catholic U. Won't Recognize NAACP Chapter

ricardomath ·
The Black Organization of Students certainly sounds like an organization that would be of interest to black students. The unbrella group, Minority Voices, also sounds like a student group that might be of interest to black, latino, and asian students, amoung others. I find it rather astounding that the university could only point to two student organizations, though, so I went to their website, in search of a list of student organizations. There is a link to such a list on the page...

I would say the only org in this group that may overlap is the Black Student Alliance and the Black Student Org Conference. I think the key is what each of these groups mission statement says. Again, I do not know what the school true motives is for refusing to allow a NAACP chapter on campus, but if the NAACP mission is the same as the orgs already established than what is the need of a new Org.

The broken link to the list of student orgs at Catholic U has aparently been fixed. http://universitycenter.cua.edu/students/studentorgs/listoforgs.cfm Here are a few of the student organizations, together with their purposes, classifications, and affiliations. Note that "political" is a legitimate classification, although "special interest" seems to be used for issue oriented groups, too. Note also that National affiliation is allowed. --------------------- AFRICAN STUDENTS ORGANIZATION:...

Welcome back to AA,org! This is good stuff. Blackfolks need to see this and recognize that the real Arabs/Semites were of African descent.
