The Lessons that Rwanda Can Teach the World

Twenty-four years ago, on the morning of April 7, 1994, members of the ethnic majority Hutu population of Rwanda began genocide against members of another ethnic Rwandan group, the Tutsis. The Rwandan genocide would kill between 800,000 and 1 million people in the course of just 100 days.  Killers primarily used machetes to slowly murder friends, neighbors and random fellow […]

Opinion: 2020 U.S. Census to Feature Controversial Citizenship Question

The 2020 U.S. Census will include a question about citizenship, for good reason. The U.S. Constitution requires an “actual enumeration” every 10 years.

To the Editor: In contemporary culture, it seems as if controversy has become a competitive sport.  A recent article published by the Liberty Champion reveals nothing different, although it does present a balanced representation of both opinions.  In this article, Vice President Mark Hine speaks out against the Student Government Association’s proposals to allow off-campus alcohol consumption for those of […]

Dear Editor: Ryan Klinker’s Feb. 20 article on “Black Panther” handled the sensitive race issue with grace and poise, a difficult accomplishment in this age.  By praising the film for its contribution to ethnic diversity, Mr. Klinker broke the commonly-held stereotype of Liberty students as racist and culturally disengaged. In addition, his willingness to discuss such a “cultural milestone” helps […]
