The inhumanity of US immigration control

1,475 kids. That’s how many immigrant children immigration control lost last year. Granted, the Department of Human and Health Services (HHS), which works closely with ICE, has stated they have “lost track” of them, which doesn’t necessarily mean the kids are lost, but that’s a worrisome number. How many of these kids could be in…

Being homeless is not a crime

Tiger Sun argues that we need to consider the homeless as people with basic human needs and rights, and treat them as such, rather than trying to hide the problem from ourselves.

Who protects us from the police?

“You know 30 years ago we were skinheads. We wore swastikas and shaved heads, and you could identify us pretty easily. So we decided at that time to grow our hair out, to trade in our boots for suits and we encouraged people to get jobs in law enforcement, to go to the military and…

Duck syndrome and a culture of misery

Stanford duck syndrome. Almost everyone knows what it is. We’ve probably all felt it at some point. Seeing people around you effortlessly glide through their lives, acing exams, landing internships and turning up at parties while you feebly trudge through your four p-sets and three projects on your nightly four hours of sleep can be…

H&M: A pillar of racism or a victim of political correctness?

“Coolest Monkey in the Jungle.” That was the text that ignited a bonfire of reaction. Several celebrities, such as G-Eazy and The Weeknd, have cut off ties with H&M, a Swedish retail company. H&M stores in South Africa have been heavily vandalized with wares stolen and mannequins destroyed. What caused all of this to unfold?…

Campus tourists: A welcome sight

“Wilbur Hall dining? Where is it?” A confused-looking, kindly old Chinese man stopped me as I was preparing to bike to class. After I pointed him in the general direction, it really got me thinking: “Man, there are a lot of Chinese tourists here.” Many of my friends here at Stanford have also noticed the…

‘Free speech or white supremacy?’: East Coast edition

Amid all the controversy surrounding his invitation to speak, self-proclaimed Islamophobe Robert Spencer gave his contentious talk last night. If you check the comments on that article, you’ll see the hate and bigotry that Spencer represents, which leads to my confusion: Who in the Stanford College Republicans thought that Robert Spencer would be representative of…

Blue 42 … Take a knee

The 2013 NFC National Championship. First and 10 at the Seattle 18. The 12th Man roaring. Kaepernick to the end zone. Intercepted. Game over. Fast forward four years, and Kaepernick’s actions are again making waves in the league — though this time not on the field. In an attempt to bring racism and oppression to light,…

Confederate controversy

“They’ve forgotten about us.” I don’t remember where I heard this, perhaps somewhere in the small town of Blacksburg, Virginia, but the context was definitely political. The IRS is always out to get our money – of course the government hasn’t forgotten about us, right? But the more I thought about it, the more I…
