Editorial: Classifying Citizens: The Racial Privacy Initiative
In order for American society to someday be completely inclusive and race-blind, its citizens cannot be classified in divisive racial categories in the eyes of the government.

Letters to the Editor: Graduate Assembly Plagued by Lack of Interest
Mr. Joseph Hall asked in his letter to the editor on Tuesday's paper about graduate representation in ASUC ("Graduate Representation," April 16). I hope he remembers that they have their own representation in ASUC, in the form of the Graduate Assembly. I wanted to make sure since I sense the lack of interest from fellow graduate students is allowing some questionable practices to prevail.

City's Failure to Take Action Perpetuates Problems
After reading your article on the problem of high school boys invading fraternity parties, I was left just shaking my head and wondering if there is anything the City of Berkeley does right ("Tensions Between Fraternities, High Schoolers Boil Over," April 16). After visiting the campus for my 20-year reunion, I was struck by the squalor of the city and the air of underdevelopment, civic pride or attention. Berkeley is good at spitting in the wind and alienating the rest of the country through its perverse political statements. It no doubt reflects most of the population that has been drawn there over the past 40-odd years. But does electorate never grow weary of the lack of public safety, disrepair, and general decline so evident there? I thought it was bad in the '80s but what I saw last year was really depressing.

Disabled Students Services Disrespected
Last week, The Daily Californian published a column on a pending lawsuit by several deaf students against the Disabled Students Program ("Leveling the Field," April 15). I am one deaf student who is not involved. I leave the judicial system to decide.

Chancellor Berdahl Botched Undergraduate Housing Plan
The UC Berkeley community should know Chancellor Berdahl is the moral equivalent of a liar. He has made factually inaccurate statements and, after being informed he was wrong, he has failed to set the record straight.
