The University of Michigan has a race problem.
“Open it up! Or we’ll shut it down!” chanted half a dozen black students at the Board of Regents meeting yesterday.
Their frustrations are getting national attention.
The Black Student union has led protests on campus and online.
Their #BBUM Twitter campaign (Being Black at U of M) has gone viral.
They’re fed up, they say, by a school that boasts about a diverse community, yet where just roughly 5% of some 28,000 undergraduate students are black.
