Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, a Somali-American Muslim woman, has received an onslaught of pejorative attacks from the far rights for a series of controversial comments she’s made about Israel and, more recently, the September 11 terrorist attacks.
From an outside perspective, the stationery store seemed irrevocably ordinary. My friend and I were walking along Newbury Street in Boston during spring break when we first encountered the shop. Its interior held an impressive collection of writing utensils on a table extending the entire length of the store, countless stacks of notebooks to choose from, and small gizmos and other knick-knacks peppered throughout the room. A stationery fanatic myself, I was seduced by the vast range of options, obsessively uncapping and capping different pens and paging through all the notepads to test the strength and grain of the paper against my fingers.

Last weekend at Weaver Track Stadium was the annual Larry Ellis track and field invitational. Ellis coached Princeton’s track and field team from 1970 to 1992. He became the first African-American head coach of an Ivy League sport in the process, and coached the 1984 Olympic track and field team. Up against high-caliber competition from all over the country, the Tigers honored his legacy with a host of breakout performances.
Be it matters of land in the past or language in the present, minority groups have always been pressured to conform to Western standards in order to survive. The sixteenth and seventeenth centuries were characterized by brutal acts against Native Americans at the hands of European colonists. Soon, norms settled in whereby the indigenous people were constantly reminded that their land was not theirs anymore.
I shouldn’t need to reiterate the importance of being friends with people who aren’t like you. I shouldn’t need to impress upon the student body the necessity of diversity: in socioeconomic status, appearance, gender, and interests.

Life here at Princeton, during my first year, runs quickly. Like many people, I feel like I’m constantly looking ahead — to the next assignment, the next tutoring shift, the next club meeting. Times to reflect are few and far between. Some of my friends complain about this, and I understand their complaints. But I don’t really miss the free time. I’m grateful for how Princeton keeps my mind busy. When I have too much time on my hands, no matter how hard I try to avoid it, my thoughts tend to gravitate towards the one thing I don’t want to think about.
When I received a notification for a Facebook event a month ago, I found myself feeling something that I never thought I would feel prompted by a student event: frustration and despair. The event in question was a “vigil” to protest against “war in Venezuela” hosted by the Coalition for Peace Action (CFPA). When I saw this, I couldn’t help but feel angry, misunderstood, and disregarded. I thought the world was finally listening to the voice of the people of Venezuela, but I saw in that event a grave misconception that risks robbing Venezuela of the support that we need to attain freedom. Such support has to come in the form of foreign intervention.
