Renberg: What do you feel are
the most important racial issues
on campuses across the country?
Sharpton: ... I think the most
important thing is that students are
learning how to come out and lead
society. So I think that the most
important issue on campus is that
students can lead a truly undisturbed
life -undisturbed by police
intimidation, undisturbed by any kind
of racial or religious barriers. Able to
pursue the acquisition of skills so that
they can be effective in society.
Anything that would limit their being
able to acquire these skills is certainly
a danger - not only to students, but a
danger to the nation.
So the flare-ups of racial tensions,
the flare-ups of police being
overbearing on campuses, are very
serious issues to me. And I think that
the interchange between students'
cultural and racial differences, the
interchange between the different
groups, become important because
you will leave these campuses and
become the leaders of society. If you
do not learn the mutual respect of
each other's divergent cultures and
races here, it will go on and reflect the
broader population.
Patton:'There's been a lot of
debate on campus about speech
codes that prohibit racially
offensive speech. Do you think
such codes inhibit debate, or do
you see them as good things?
AS: I think that it inhibits the
debate, unless you just get into total
vulgar stuff. Who is the determining
factor of what is racially offensive? I
would rather have a straight
argument, or straight debate, or
straight session with you, where you
feel you can say whatever you've got
to say and not have to worry about a
code, so we know how far we've got
to come to come together.
If a code imposes the parameters,
then are we having an honest
discussion? I'm of the view that
people ought to be able to express
themselves, and express themselves
with enough maturity to be seeking
common ground as they do.
But how do you seek common
ground if you've already been

censored and limited in terms of your
RP: It seems that the forum
last night really polarized a lot of
people. People just got angrier and
angrier, and to a large degree this
happened along racial lines. So,
given that you see the need for a
common ground, what positive
gains do you see coming out of
something like last night?
AS: It begins the dialogue. The
forum didn't polarize; the forum
exposed the polarization... I think
what happened was that a lot of
people were able to begin to express
things they never have expressed
before. I met with two students
afterwards - white and Black - and
that's what they said
I think that the mission now is for
the groups, both white and Black, on
campus, to use the obvious polarized
views that were expressed last night
as a vehicle for other forums, without
personalities, and start really dealing
with the fact that there are serious
disagreements among the students at
the University of Michigan at Ann
Arbor. And how do they reach
common ground? Had we not come,
many of the people would have never
got up and said that...
So I figure the good of coming was
that some Black students got to hear
what some white students and Jewish
students felt and vice-versa, and if
they're smart they will use that now
to sit down and start to deal with
some of that. If they're not, they will
say, "Oh, nah, nah, you'll stay in your
bag and I'll stay in my bag," and keep
the thing as an open rift. It is healthy,
to me, to bring everything out into the
If you've got a cancer you operate,
you expose it first and then you go in
and cut it out. What everyone is trying
to do is to put a band-aid on a cancer,
and that only lets the cancer spread.
So the role of activists is to expose the
cancer. We did that last night.
Hopefully (the audience) will
become the surgeons, to dig the.
cancer out. But we did our job in
exposing that there is a polarization
that is going on in society, that is also
reflected on campus.
