Georgetown sells out

Reader comment on item: Two Palestines?

Submitted by Thomas Earl Cannady (United States), Jan 1, 2006 at 20:57

Interesting that so many universities are looking at muslims and finding them to be more acceptable than I do. I wonder about a group of people who spend a great many dollars promoting their lifestyle, which is very destructive to almost everyone. Donating money to universities is a time honored way of promoting something as well as avoiding taxes but I would like Prince Talai, the Saudi to think of a better way to bring to the American public's attention the plight of the middle east. I can suggest promoting women and children's rights and not using tanks and bombs to change political regimes and not support racism.

Now I am an African American, a student, a father and a member of the United Methodist Church of America. This makes me a little different from most African Americans (who mostly call themselves black) but if I can be thoughtful and work to uplift my middle class status to upper middle class why can't the rich prince try not being a regular rich guy and instead be a role model for other middle eastern types and work to promote a peaceful soluction to the problems of the world. Givng money is nice but supporting the prolifiration of weapons and supporting human rights seems like something we can all get behind.
