TO THE EDITOR: Many people believe that the prerequisite to enjoying human rights is to be human. But this isn’t the case — those rights are not delivered and protected on the basis of being a person, but rather being a citizen. When citizenship is stripped because of racial, ethnic, gendered or religious motives, a person finds themselves stateless: officially unrecognized by any state or nation. Precluded from registering children at birth, enrolling in schools and universities, participating in the formal economy or traveling without the risk of deportation, the stateless live as “ghost citizens” in their communities.

By Sam Keeling, Staff Writer It’s impossible to discuss Donald Glover, the musician, without bringing up Donald Glover, the actor/writer. Although he likes to tell interviewers that his career on the screen and his rap persona, Childish Gambino, are different entities tackling separate issues and ideas, the fact is that there are clear parallels between the two. And that doesn’t change with his third major release, “Awaken, My Love!” Glover made a name for himself in 2009 when he began his role as the lovable goof, Troy Barnes, on NBC’s cult comedy, “Community.” Around that same time, he began...Read More
By Emma Kinghorn, The Miami Student The 2016 presidential election has been unprecedentedly scandalous, tumultuous and divisive. Few people could have predicted this election cycle, and in response, the whole of America seems to be dead set on assigning a “blame” for its results. It’s the media’s fault. It’s the electoral college’s fault. It’s uneducated voters’ fault. It’s white males’ fault. It’s the basket of deplorables’ fault. It’s Russia’s fault. How can this be someone’s, or something’s, fault? Journalists have come under fire post-election for not covering enough, doing enough or for perpetuating the Trump phenomenon.
