Addressing a crowd of about 80
people at Stockwell residence hal
fast night, LSA senior and Black
Student Union representative David
!Colbert told Black students to deny
what he termed a "back of the bus"
mentality and be proud of their race
and their heritage.
The purpose of the event - co-
sponsored by Markley Minority
Affairs Council and Sisters In
Stockwell Transmitting Ethnic
;Relations - was to rebroadcast and
discuss Racism 101, a PBS program
that focuses on race relations at
Dartmouth College, the University
,of Massachusetts, and the University
The hour-long documentary,
:which aired nationally May 10,
,provides a recent historical
background for University student
anti-racism activism. Its Michigan
coverage begins in spring 1987,
when the United Coalition Against
;Racism, the Black Action
:Movement III, and BSU were created
:in response to a stream of racist
mncidents on campus.
Charles Wynder, a member of
i3SU and the Black Law Student
Association who spoke after the
viewing, said the program is
effective because it "opened eyes" of
parents, faculty, and staff to aspects
of racism at the University and
;encouraged dialogue on campus
)nanifestations of racism.
Colbert, Wynder, who appeared in
the show, and Todd Shaw of BSU
alked with students for more than an
hour after the viewing.
"So many white students, even
students of other color, come into
this institution with preconceived
;notions about Blacks," Colbert said.
"You've got to hip these people to
what reality is, your reality."
All three speakers stressed that
Mlack students must work hard and
collectively rather than individually.
By uniting, using outlets such as
organizational meetings, study
groups, and personal networking,
;Blacks on campus can "rebuild,"
"I think it's necessary for us to
strive for academic success as a
group," Wynder said. "You need to
realize how high the stakes are."

Sexual assault victims may soon find their trials a
little more bearable with a new program to provide
personal support in the courtroom and information
about trial procedures.
The Women's Crisis Center, the Washtenaw
County Assault Crisis Center, and The University's
Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Center have
joined forces to form a Court Action Program. CAP
will attempt to better address both the sexual assault
victim's need for support and the community's need for
"Having someone to talk to you, inform you about
what is going to happen next" is helpful to a victim,
said CAP Coordinator Clara Steinzor, a part-time grad-
uate student and former trainer on research projects at
the Institute for Social Research.
Steinzor believes CAP may be the first comprehen-
sive program of its kind in the state, and perhaps the
nation. Although other social service agencies in
Michigan have expressed great interest in creating such
a program, a lack of resources has prevented them from
performing extensive court accompaniment and court
"Our court system is pretty overloaded. There aren't
a lot of peopledwho can give personal attention to a
victim," she said.
"(A sexual assault trial) is a really frightening, con-
fusing, overwhelming process... As in any crisis or
difficult situation, (the victim) may not be paying at-
tention to all the things (he or she) needs to know,"
The court had a limited "Victims Witness Program'
10 years ago that the Board of Commissioners discon-
tinued when funding was no longer available. "We
don't have the personnel to be with (victims)," said
County Prosecutor William Delhey.
City Attorney Bruce Laidlaw agreed that victims
may need support the government may not be able to.
provide well. Victims often assume their attorney is
looking out for their best interest, but they may not be
happy with the prosecutor's actions, and in that case,
"someone who understands the process could help,"
"If someone wants to look over my shoulder, that's
fine," he added.
Although ACC, WCC, and SAPAC are well-ac-
quainted with the court procedure, they will watch up-
coming sexual assault cases to better prepare them-
selves to educate future victims and the community.
"Every case is different. We want to keep track
specifically of what is going on... (so we may make) a
more factual representation," said Steinzor.
The program is still in the planning stage, but
Steinzor said she has heard from many people, particu-
larly students, interested in volunteering. She begins
training next week, she said.

The continued breakdown of the eco-
nomics department's only xerox machine
has forced the department chair to strictly
restrict use of the machine, prompting
professors and teaching assistants to hand
out markedly less copied material and re-
quire more copyshop coursepacks.
The restriction, which has hampered
supplies to several of the University's
largest courses, has prompted accusations
that the University is treating TAs un-
fairly and using large economics courses
to subsidize less popular courses in other
About 1,600 students in Economics
201 and 202 courses - two of the largest
and most congested courses in the Uni-
versity - have already received fewer
handouts and been required to pick up
copies every week at Dollar Bill.
David Gray, head teaching assistant for
Economics 201, Introduction to Microe-
conomics, said he feels "squeezed on all
sides" by the administration.
With an average of 50 students per
section, Gray said the single xerox ma-
chine had been overused for course-related
articles, quiz answers, and other supple-
mentary material, leading to its break-
down. But instead of getting another ma-
ie xerox machine
say more funds
should return to
chine, the department has asked the TAs
to implement an outdated ditto machine,
which would reduce TA roles to "clerical
work," he said.
But Gray insists that restrictions on
xeroxing only touch the surface of a
larger issue. The TAs are undervalued, he
said, and the money gained from the in-
troductory economics courses - some of
the biggest money-making courses in the
University, according to Economics Prof.
Richard Porter - should be pumped back
into the department.
Porter estimates that of the $800 tu-
ition a student pays for each economics
course - figured at $200 per credit hour
for in-state - only $100 of that is used
to pay TAs and professors. The rest of the
money - at 1,600 students each term -
brings in millions of dollars to the Uni-
A new $22,000 xerox machine could
not be purchased, according to Porter, be-
cause much of the profit from the eco-
nomics courses is used to subsidize what
he called the "loser courses" of other de-
partments, such as the "philosophy
course with four students and one
Those courses are not self-sufficient
like the economics courses, he said.
In response to Gray's assertion that
TAs are undervalued and that the
administration "just doesn't care," Porter
said the assistants' status is not well-de.-
As students whose tuition is subsi-
dized, the TAs are "treated well," he said.
As apprentices, they are treated "badly, as
all apprentices are." And as union labor,
they are "exploited terribly," he said.
But no matter how the TAs are treated
or where the funds go, the materials are
still not there.
"The students are the unfortunate vic-
tims of this administrative action," said
LSA junior Fran Obeid. "It is an injustice
that the economic department delegates so
much responsibility to the TAs and re-
fuses to provide the essential materials
needed for instruction."
