What Happened?

I'm glad we have this seminar where we can talk about current affairs - especially things like what happened after the game. Nobody I know wants white students calling black students "nigger." I can hardly believe it happened. Twenty-five years ago at this university liberal white students wanted the administration to recruit more black students. And now this! What's going on?

I mean this as a serious question. When 'things happen' we have to decide how to describe or define the situation. The description we use has a major influence both on how we explain what has happened and how we respond to it.

Any thoughts?
