NAACP
By EUGENE PAK
Speaking before an audience of
more than 50 listeners at the East
Quad auditorium last night, civil
rights leader and University
alumnus Rev. Charles Adams said
the United States under the Reagan
administration is a fascist and racist
state.
"We're living in a crisis, a crisis
not faced in over 50 years," said
Adams, former president of the
Detroit chapter of the National
Association for the Advancement of
Colored People.
Although mild-mannered and
humorous, Adams vehemently
indicted Reagan's policies, saying
they promote increased racism and a
warped fundamentalism.

leader
Adams criticized Reagan's
"overemphasis on law and order at
the expense of liberty and life," his
consistent support of big business,
and the blind, almost religious
patriotism toward Reagan that feeds
the military buildup.
"The feeling is we've got to kill
somebody, we've got to bomb,
kill, destroy," said Adams, referring
to the invasion of Grenada.
CITING voting statistics from
the last presidential election, Adams
said most blacks have not
supported, and have certainly not
benefitted from, Reagan's policies.
"There is no racial or ethnic
group more vehemently and
consistently opposed to President
Reagan than African Americans,"

blasts Reagan

said Adams.
He said Reagan's traditionalism
and patriotism are only masks for
racism. Adams said Reagan himself
is not the problem, but is only "the
fever blister on the swollen lip of a
sick society."
Adams then outlined some of the
problems facing American blacks
and showed how they are really
produced from the overall structure
of society.
The increasing and widely-
publicized occurences of black-on-
black crime are fundamentally a
result of the oppression and
inferiority breeded by large crime
syndicates, according to Adams.
"The auto theft ring in Detroit is
hooked up to a nationwide ring," in

which poor urban black teens are
trained by organized crime
members.
"They exploit the poverty and
hopelessness that exists in the
urban African American
community," said Adams.
He said society's response does
not attack these root causes.
"We can't just beef up local law
enforcement," Adams said, "because
(the problem) does not come from
the streets, but originates in the
suites."
The high college and high-
school dropout rates for blacks are
results of inequitable distribution of
public funds to schools, according
to Adams.

The Michigan Student Assembly
last night tabled a resolution which
would ask students if assembly
involvement in non-campus issues
s appropriate. If passed, the
resolution will add a referendum
question to the March ballot.
LSA junior and assembly
representative David Newblatt, who
proposed the resolution, said the
allot question would be non-
binding. "I would like to put the
question to the students and see
how they feel," he said.
The ballot proposal mirrors a
referendum question already drafted
in a petition by the Involved in

Michigan Political Action Com -
mittee. The IMPAC proposal,
backed by 1800 student signatures,
was presented to MSA on Monday.
"I would like the question to
come from MSA because if it does,
it's an internal improvement drive,"
Newblatt said. "If it comes from the
other side, it's an attack on MSA."
IMPAC Vice Chairperson Eddie
Mehrfar, an LSA junior, said he
would withdraw his ballot question
if the assembly's proposal passed.
"We want to allow MSA to make
up their own minds - if they want
to listen to the students," Mehrfar
said. "But if they don't want to do
it, then we'll do it."

What would you do if you were a senior in college and needed extra money?
Get a job or start a business.
Mike Judge of Tally Hall's Steak Escape did both.
Nearly five years ago, Mike took a job in Ohio with the first Steak Escape store.
Today, he owns two franchises-with professionally trained staff at Tally Hall
and at Portside in Toledo.
Whoever thought that a limited menu of cooked-to-order sandwiches and
hand-cut french fries would be so successful?
Mike did.
