Letter: Proposed resolution stigmatizes Israel

To the Editors: The UMass Graduate Employees Union (United Automobile Workers affiliated) is now currently debating and voting on a resolution as to whether their organization should join the “BDS movement,” a campaign to isolate and stigmatize Israel based on a one-sided and radical perspective on the Middle East conflict. It is disappointing to us as faculty that the University of Massachusetts graduate students are considering this misguided and polarizing action. These resolutions, which blame one side entirely for a complex historical conflict, do not promote peace and dialogue between Palestinians and Israelis. They encourage polarization by stigmatizing any engagement…

Letter: Wall is a regression towards racial inequality

Editor’s note: This letter contains graphic language. A concerned student told me this week that the privilege to use a collective artistic space on campus had been unjustly annexed. This was a Central Living Area wall that had been the subject of a racially-fractious dialogue. In the age of social media, it was easy for me to remotely verify this student’s claim. A mural bearing the phrase “Black Lives Matter” was changed to read “All Lives Matter”. The logic of the “Black Lives Matter” slogan is that all lives matter, but Black lives are undervalued, as indicated by a higher…

Letter: Shocked at radio host’s ban from WMUA

To the editor, I am writing on the subject of the recent shockingly unexpected shutting down of Max Shea’s new music radio  program “Martian Gardens” on the WMUA. As an American composer of contemporary music who has been living in France for some years, I am shocked and dismayed that Mr. Shea’s new music program has been driven off the air for reasons that seem to have nothing to do with the musical interest of this program or with the quality of Shea’s work. In effect, Mr. Shea is one of the few persons in the U.S. who follows closely such important new music…
