UM’s campus NAACP group criticized BAMN last week for including bussed-in high school students from Detroit as part of a rally against the Michigan Civil Rights Initiative, a ballot proposal to ban affirmative action in Michigan. From the Michigan Daily:
Alex Moffett, vice president of the NAACP, said BAMN tokenized and presented black students in a bad light when it bused in hundreds of black middle- and high-school students from Detroit for the Thursday rally on the Diag.
Representatives of the two groups sparred at an MSA meeting over the comments:
“(BAMN) failed to acknowledge that they didn’t properly prepare these students to come to participate in the rally, and they didn’t accept responsibility for the damage they caused to the image of black students on this campus,” Moffett said after the meeting.
