terry warns China
about weapons sales

NATION/WORLD

The Michigan Daily - Tuesday, December 10, 1996 - 7

Racially motivated
incidents still occur

WASHINGTON (AP) - Defense
Secretary William Perry told China's
defense minister yesterday that weapons
saps to Iran could backfire on the Asian
giant. Gen. Chi Haotian said he would
"censider the point". but maintained
reports of the sales had been exaggerated.
.The Chinese also consented in prin-
ciple to allowing U.S. warships to con-
tinue making port visits in Hong Kong
after July 1997, when China regains
sovereignty over the colony, according
to a senior defense official who briefed
reporters on condition of anonymity.
Perry's warning on Iranian relations
came as Perry and Chi, as part of a series
, f increased U.S.-China contacts, agreed
to continue high level military meetings.
The Chinese general met briefly at
the White House with President Clinton
at the start of a U.S. visit that will
include trips to U.S. Pacific Command
headquarters in Hawaii and other mili-
tary installations.
Clinton told the defense minister "he
views our engagement with China as a
way to further our cooperation where
we can ... and to address our differ-
ences were they exist, such as human
rights," White House spokesperson

David Johnson said.
He said there was no substantive dis-
cussion of human rights or other con-
tentious matters such as Taiwan or the
reported weapons sales to Pakistan or
Iran.
Perry's remarks on Iran came during
a discussion of weapons proliferation.
The defense secretary told his visitor
"even legal arms sales to Iran threaten
U.S. interests, but could also threaten
China's because of China's increased
dependence on oil from the Gulf. ... It
could backfire on China" should con-
flict erupt in the Persian Gulf area, the
senior defense official said.
The Chinese general said he "would
consider this point" the official added.
The talks roused some harsh criti-
cism on Capitol Hill, with Rep. Chris
Smith (R-N.J.) dubbing the Chinese
general "the butcher of Beijing" for his
role in quelling the Tiananmen Square
student uprising of 1989.
Smith, chair of the House
International Relations human rights
subcommittee, also lambasted Clinton,
saying, "The future of his policy toward
China is quite clear - torture your peo-
ple, imprison the peaceful voices of

freedom and human rights, kill inno-
cent men, women and children, and the
U.S. will look the other way."
Queried about such comments, Perry
said the talks were "very good" and
necessary because they focused on con-
fidence-building measures between the
nations' two military forces.
"China is one of the great powers of
the world. It is critically important for
the United States to ... engage China
and deal with them on issues that are
important not only to the security of the
United States and China, but also to the
whole Asia-Pacific region," Perry said.

Pentagon officials also presented the
Chinese with a draft of a military mar-
itime agreement, and the Chinese
agreed to work on it. The pact would
establish rules for reporting problems at
sea, and is similar to a 1972 agreement
reached with the Russians, the senior
official said.
The Chinese general, who had lunch
with several of the military's top offi-
cers, invited Gen. John Shalikashvili,
the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of
Staff, to visit China. The four-star Army
general responded there was "no doubt
he would go."

INCIDENTS

familiar with the University.
"We're just a university - there hap-
pens to be racial tension every day (and
everywhere)," said Glen Eden, African
American coordinator at the Office of
Multi-Ethnic Student Affairs. "It's
unfortunate that we have the same type
of incidents that may be racially moti-
vated that happened 30 years ago."
"This is the ugly side of Michigan,
basically," Eden said.
There are many resources available to
students who feel they have been dis-
criminated against because of their race.
"There are a number of places they
can go," said Frank Cianciola, associate
dean of students, citing the Dean of
Students' office, the Ombudsman's
office, the Department of Public Safety
and residence hall staff as some of the
options.
Ivory went to the NAACP, the Black
Student Union, the Dean of Students'
office and Eden at the MESA office to
report what happened to her.
Mary Lou Antieau, resolution coor-
dinator in the Office of Conflict
Resolution, said the reports the office
receives of racially motivated incidents
often do not pin-
point another stu-
dent. "Very rarely I'm n
do we get one
where there is I hi
another student
named," she said. thatthin
"Most of them
are (anonymous), blatant N
which means we
can't act on one
them."
"If I do get a
complaint to this
office, the first
thing I do is inves-
tigate it Antieau
said. She said that if the report is accu-
rate, she then calls the student who made
the complaint into her office.
Increased awareness
Ivory said the man who spit on her
had an audacity that took her by sur-
prise. "I'm not naive, (but) I had no idea
that things this blatant were going on"
she said.
Students say the University commu-
nity needs to be more aware that racial-
ly motivated incidents are occurring.
LSA senior Paolo Aquino said that
certain racially motivated incidents are
not reported because victims feel the
community will not back up their claim.
"Maybe in their own mind they feel
like (it sounds like) a racial incident but
it's not serious enough to support;' said
Aquino, external communications chair
for the United Asian American
Organization, an umbrella group of 18
Asian Pacific American groups on
campus.
"In the eyes of many students, the
administration doesn't take the initia-
tive to do things to bridge the differ-
ences between the ethnic community,
and that more needs to be done"
Aquino said.
Cianciola said he is aware that con-
flicts are sometimes marked by racial
undertones, but said he does not know
how often.
"I think that these incidents occur,"
he said. "I have no personal knowledge
of the frequency of these types of inci-
dents."
Tactless classroom approaches
Racial issues can surface in the class-
room as well. John Matlock, director of
the Office of Academic and
Multicultural Initiatives, said he has
heard of times when students felt some-

thing inappropriate or tasteless was said
during a class.
"Some students bring it to the atten-
tion of the faculty member and let them
know they did or said something inap-

dents," Hall said.

Matlock said students may not be
willing to come forward when they
have a bad experience in the classroom.
"I think sometimes students are con-
cerned about, will there be some reper-
cussions in terms of (importance) in
their grade ... . Yes, I do think there
may be some reluctance," he said.
LSA sophomore Kevin Jones said he
has heard other students make inappro-

that stereotypes sometimes surface
when students make comments about:
Latinos, Asian Americans and Africarq
Americans. Jones said he finds the

"crimes that manifest evidence of prej-
udice based on race, religion, sexual,.
orientation or ethnicity."
Hall said students should not hesi-
tate to tell authorities if they feet
they have been the victim of a hate
crime.
"We certainly would encourage peo-
ple to make a report if they do feel
something has happened," she said. "It's
important to report that type of thing so
that we can take action."
Struggles and solutions
Zahr said minority groups should.
communicate more with each other to
facilitate discussion of the issues. "I
think we need a strong minority
alliance of all the groups" he said.
McGhee said the University has
started making strides in the right direc--
tion, but more needs to be done. "I
think the race and ethnicity requirement
is a good thing," she said.
Antieau said incoming students
should be taught more about diversity:
"Many of them come from racially
segregated high schools," she said.
"And so our first-year students have
not had a lot of opportunities to learn
about people who are different from
themselves."
"It creates problems when we don't
work with students to expand their
understanding of other races,' Antieau
said.
Harris re-emphasized the serious-
ness that is sometimes overlooked
when racially motivated incidents
occur. "It's not to be taken lightly by
anyone at this University," she said.
"To treat it as a joke (or) prank ...
minimalizes the person's experi-
ence," she said.
Students wishing to report incidents
to DPS can call their general informa-
tion line at 763-3434.
Students may also contact the Dean
of Students' and Ombudsman's offices,
which are located on the third floor of
the Michigan Union.
