der is a factor. Geography is a factor.... Let's
include all the factors and make American uni-s
versities look like America's future," he said. S
During the rally, Coalition to Defend Affirma-r
tive Action By Any Means Necessary membert
Erika Dowdell addressed Martin Luther King Jr.'sl
"I have a dream" speech, in which he said, "We
have come to cash this check - a check that willr
give us upon demand the riches of freedom and t
the security ofjustice."f
Dowdell, an LSA junior, said it is time to fulfill
King's dream. "This new movement must
demand that that check be cashed. We will fightt
this case all the way to the Supreme Court and wer
will not end until we see every race being repre-
sented in our schools and every institution of edu-i
Dowdell said Friedman admitted racism is ar
part of society but said his decision showed hes
does not care. "We will not stand for his 'oh well'
attitude. We will not have an 'oh well' attitude. Wes
want integration in this society - now,'she said.
BAMN member Jessica Curtin, a Rackham t
student, said the decision took her by surprise but
she is confident that "one man" is not the decid-J
ing factor in tle fight against affirmative action.
"We know that we are right, we know thata
racism exists in this society and that there musts
be social programs to offset it. We are going to gos
to the Supreme Court and win," she said.v

But Lehman defended the Law School's affirma-
tive action policy.
S "Race matters more in society than it ought to;'
Lehman said. "This is not something that was creat-
ed by our admissions policy."
He added that the Law School is very selective of
all applicants, regardless of race.
"It's a matter of choosing between a talented and
diverse class and a talented un-diverse class," he
said. "And students simply receive a better educa-
tion in a diverse environment."
Donna Pettway, an LSA junior, challenged an ear-
ier statement by McWhorter that affirmative action
Miranda Massie, the lead attorney for the stu- *. gWSg 111.' 11 W
dent intervenors in the lawsuit, called the judge's ...
opinion "dishonest,"wretched," "backward" and
"regressive." Massie said Friedman's ruling
should not hold up in higher courts but urged all
students to read the 90-page opinion. "You cannot
read that opinion with an open mind and think
that Judge Friedman ever had an open mind,
before, during or after the trial."
Jackson called on students to join the national
march in Washington, planned for October, and
the national conference on affirmative action
planned for April or May that will be held here.
"It should be a national conference here to pre-
pare for a major logistical gathering," Jackson
told reporters after the rally. "Race is too funda-
mental to our culture."
Curtin later said the point of the rally is to
impact the decision of the Supreme Court.
Most students supported Jackson's ideas, but
not everyone was impressed with what he had to
"I'm reallyexcited about the initiative that the
students have taken" said LSA freshman Natoya
Coleman. "I have a sense of comfort that every-
thing's going to turn out to be okay."'
"I think he was avoiding a lot of the topic," said
John Donovan, an Engineering sophomore.
Donovan, who said he does not believe taking
away affirmative action will lead to resegregation,
said Jackson spent too much time focusing on LS1
segregation and not affirmative action. "I think he oPF
was just finding something to attack." jud
stigmatizes minorities. Pettway said that as a black
student at the University, she doesn't feel any nega-
tive benefits of affirmative action. Rather, she con-
tinued, she's outraged by the challenges to the
McWhorter's response caused audience members
to gasp in shock.
"The civil rights leaders of yesteryear would be
perplexed to hear a young black student indignantly
defending her right to be judged by lower stan-
dards," he said. "No race has ever climbed to the top
that way and neither will we."
Pettway then said affirmative action doesn't take
away from the consideration given to her grades or

acts, piano playing, comic skits, tra-
ditional Persian and modern hip-hop
dancing. There are four parts to the
show, which, Breakstone said, "will
really serve as one play, one story."
More than 30 students have been
working on the skits since January.
Breakstone, an LSA junior, said
although the show is much smaller
than other cultural performances,
PSA is still expecting a large turnout
for the show.
"We're small but mighty. I'm hop-
ing that we can draw 1,700 people
from a 37,000-person student body.
We're just asking for a small slice of
campus," he said, adding that the
previous years' shows, held at small-
er venues, both sold out.
The purpose of the show is to
unite the Persian community.
"We don't care what your politics
are. It's absolutely not political. If
our community were to unite, we
could have a greater impact than we
currently have," Breakstone said.
The event also serves as a way to
celebrate the Persian New Year,
which was the first day of spring.
"We're excited. I haven't slept for
the past two weeks just doing all the
preparation, but it's worth it at the
end because the show will be fantas-
tic and all the work - falling behind
in class - will be justified," said

Dramatic skits about the history of

thing in one show," said ASA execu-

Besides the throng of media and
players in attendance for the press con-
ference, a few Maize Ragers were on
hand to, as one put it, "personally thank
Tommy Amaker for coming here."
"You put (the students) on the floor,
bring us Tommy Amaker, I'll get excit-
ed," LSA sophomore Brian Groesser
Amaker comes to Michigan after
spending four years as Seton Hall's
head coach. In that time, the Pirates
were 68-55 with four postseason
berths, including a trip to the NCAA
Sweet 16 a year ago.
Amaker also served as an assistant at
his alma mater Duke for eight seasons,
during which the Blue Devils reached
five Final Fours and won back-to-back
As a player, Amaker served as
Duke's team captain in 1986-87, earn-
ing All-America and National Defen-
sive Player of the Year honors.

that the intervenors were not represented on the
panel, particularly in light of the last-minute addi-
tion of Purdy to the show.
"It's outrageous," she said. "The show was scan-
dalously biased. They had one person speaking for
the University and two for the position that minority
students are inferior. No one was up there to stand
up for the minority students."
The second hour of the broadcast was devoted to
the changing face of higher education. University
