The need for balance in campus politics

Posted4/20/2019 1:00 AM

I am writing this in answer to a letter recently read in your column. I recently moved to Illinois from Georgia. Politics there are much more to my liking.

I read Rosemary Colbert's remarks regarding Walter Williams' article on education. Being a conservative who loves history, I feel it is her opinion that is skewed. Having conservatives outnumbered by liberals at the college level has created problems that need to be addressed.

There is a whole generation of young people who are completely intolerant of any opinions but their own, something which I expect their professors have in common. When history is addressed, it is abhorrent to them, so much so that they either want to delete it or alter it.

History is where we learn from our mistakes so they are not repeated in future generations.
