The financil detaUs are also not yet settled bW; in any event, the team will ask for no more than what OP dinarily one person would receive and would like to room on campus. The details of this team candidacy will be av'ailable at the end of third term and herein published. A number of are perceived in this approach, not the least of which is the interaction of team members supplementing thier individual endeavors. The areas of interest and can petency covered would be : Bruce, mod ern cultural history, philosophies of life and art, Harvey, 10ccUltism, lyric poetry, and muslc;Loclo 'Wood Rush, Zen Buddhism, Radical.Psv. ..:hology and film making.

Maybe, if thq go right, it'll be poai b le to eat thi& way <>D the meal pl&D. White bzead lhould be nmoved and be replaced by whole wheat b r e a d. There u no quution that whole wheat bread u infinitely better ill nery rupect (it even tutu better!).. Of com"Se, nothiDg beats home ed whole wheat (or soy, or rye or uy other whole grain or combhaation of whole graim) bread.. You even have the additional ch.oice of ma.killg a yeuted or unyeuted bread. Isn't nlatu.re wODderful?! The whole whea flour contaim, amoJa& other things, the complete Vit. B (B1 821 831 Bc;1 B12, etc.) and the vluable and, wUortunately, hare: to come by Vit. E. Brown rice should be 1ubrtituted for white riee whenever rice il uaed. As you might have gueaed, it iJ abo far superlor to ita processed brother. Its got more protein, iron, calcium, Jilorphorous, po tassium, sodium, 8)., B 2 & Niacin (B 3) than either converted or white rice. Un like white or converted rices, brown rice has a taste to it--a very good taste I think--and it has to be chewed. May I also suggest gettiDg rid of all white sug:ar you own {or, lf "waste not, want not'' is your motto, use up what ever you have} and, if you like thiDgs sweet, replaciDg it with honey--and moluses if you want. If you want to cook with honey, use l/2--2/3 (to taste) the amount of sugar the recipe calli for al so, you might find that fruit juices or vegetable JUices (tomatoe JUice, V-8 etc. ) or water taste JUst as good and are u satisfyiDg as soda (they're also all bet ter for you, even water--it doesn't a d d the calories to your diet that soda does). Vegetables are really good thill&l and a big salad should be eaten at every meal --vegetables have more in them than you think. Whenever poaible, at meals, eat some fruit. It's good you and helps you too. There is some feellng among c e rtain parties that vegetables a d fruits shouldn1 t be mixed at meals. J have some more information on this if anyone is interested (I'm in Room 219.). If you eat peanut butter, I would strongly recommend getting it with unhydrogenated vegetable oil--which can, alu, only be bought in a health f o o d store. Use of hydrogenated vege tab 1 e oil results in a high cholesterol 1 e v e 1 which can lead to heart disease. A ho, regulal' penut buttel' has mono-diglycerides, sugar and dextroce, salt, and a aumber of other goodies added to it. The jelly you eat with it should be made from b.oney--again a health food store com -modity. Apple butter {Smuckel'lt with notlrlDg added cube Obtained at Publix) is also a good compuion to peanut but ter. Cuea what's ill that loa. of white bread you bought.

Being Black meansmthing to me because all the things that "Black leaders" are calling Blackness are somehow not related to me in any effectual way. My personal temperatment is not such that makes me actively interested in social, cultural (in a strict geographic sense) or economic matters. In my happiest moments, I JOVially comb my nappy hair and much my pig ears, and read my philosophy books without guilt. Now, at more wretched times, I have to lament that I'm being treated "special"; lament that I'm called to "Special" little meeting; lament that I might be somewhere I don't truly deserve to be. I know, it is bad to say that Bla c k is nothing. But if I were not Black I would not have to, or even really be expected to say anything. If 11Bla c k is nothing" sounds like a cop-out, a reJection, a denial, it is because a statement like that seems to be a cultural negation. But it is not. It is part of my movement. MY black reactionary movement. I don't want to go back to being a slave, or a servant. I don't want to be a master either. What I do want to be is myself. The right to be myself, the right to be able to say "I am not oppressed" and have someone believe me. The present trend in "Black" A me rica is towards getting the Blad< people (Or any poverty group what they deserve and have been derued (take that in as radical or moderate sense as you wish). But this whole movement is based on the fantasy of the "Average Black Man". I contend that such a creature is undefinable, therefore practically non-existent. Perhaps 40 years ago, and I am only speculating, there might have been some concensus of what the Black man was like: What his needs were, what his goals were, what he had lived. Then it might have been fantastic if it would have been possible to start a movement, a big one based on the "Average Black Man. 11 But now, I think we have a different situation. Take into consideration the Black "population" of our own N. C. community. yea, look at the four of us. How can anyone say that we have lived the same life, that we have the same goals, or even the same needs, in a very general, genera 1 sense. Me and my white middleclass room mate have more in common than my tia:k middle class friend on campus. I have seen ab01,1nding evidence in the outside world to confirm this belief also. What 1 think is necessary, because I and others like me are tired and sick of having to make such contentions as"Black is nothing" of having to be subject to the stereotyping that Blacks are dc:ing and whites, bless them, never have totally stopped doing; of having to be called orea and Uncle Toms because we happened to live a little bit ahead of the Black move ments that came too late: we were already cJDnditioned against oppression and now we cannot feel oppressed. --::rh'ere has to be a d'ivision or an to the present racial movement. A division that will stop claiming to talk to peo ple for people like me who aren't saying anything because they don't feel the need to be 11freed" or helped. To talk for the people who want to be talked for should be the JOb of racial movements, andsince all Blacks aren't claiming to be oppreSSEd then a group cannot very well fairly call themseives the Black anythings nor count us in their numbers. There are people who are poor and are being pressured and they need help, maybe organized help. Let these people be helped, I'm sorry they couldn't have been helped earlier. ARTICLE STARTS Rf Ever since the_ CivU Rights struggle began, America hu inailtedothat the pro blem of Black people was a lack of "education". We were given "inferior" educational institutiODJ, thus resulting in bad housing, inadeql.late medical care, poor food, etc. The other problem that whites have begun to express is the lack of education among whites with regard to Black America. If this is indeed the problem, and reeducating whites is the proposed solution, then I wowd think that a Black Cultural Center would be a major step in solving race relations in the U.S. Black people have been com tan t 1 y given the impression they were lllbhu man, inferior faillues. We've been barded constantly with the laory, shiftless no-good nigger image u being a natural trait of Black people. The one bit of indoctrination that could be, and is worse I than this dehumanil:ing effort by America, is the image of "white iJ right, b:own hang around, black stay ba c k". From the time black children firlt begin school white culture iJ implanted in their minds u "The Culture". Anytime \'Ast-ern clllture is to be discussed, the discussion not only centers around white culture but it tneds to either exclude or deemphasize any body's culture other of the white peoples of the As a result of our "Great' Society'', its exclusive style of education, America has invented an entire race of m en tally retarded white robots. I call them negroes; you as a member of the larger society might call them "responsible" lead ers. The name I had to borrow, but the idea is nothing new. These negroes are usually middle and upper class non-white non-black schizophrenia, who have been so thoroughly brainwashed, and so contented with their nice white images of themselves, that they fail to realize that they don't even exist as. people. These humanoids will have no peoblem succeed ing in -:he phony worlds in which they exist. They have usually gone on to institutions of higher retardation, and are well up the ladder that never exiltedo These poor delusioned robats are a group that was created out of necessity as part of the master plan to forever enslave nonwhite people. They are many of todaY' "leaders'', speaking out againrt injustices. But doing it in such a way so as not to offend anybody. Many of them view a "good' job, a "nice" home, and a new car as freedom. Well this is what you, America, has wanted them to think for far too long. It is these people who keep the masses "in their place". It is these modem day TOMS, who make s u r e "mwa" stays on top, and just to make sure, America keeps around your friendly neighborhood Nat1l Guardlme11. Y o u know, the ones who shot down the 12-year old in Chicago I think it was. All these insane people must b e gathered up and placed in mental inrti tutions. They are more accu.r ate 1 y called Black Liberation Schools. These people need their minds liverated from the control of a society who is hostile, a society who is bent on their destruc tion, and the systematic execution d. all the non-white p6oples of the world. They need to see that whites have never really wanted to integrate, nor will they ever seek to integrate unless this country undergoes some very radical change within the coming years. To give you an example of what this count ry can do to a person, there appeared, in VISTA magazine a statement by a seventeen year old girl on her thoughts about beautr. "Beauty--slim nose, narrow lips, straight hair and fair complexion are all beauty to me; I am Black with a broad nose and nappy hair, what else can I be but ugly? Nose, hair, lips are these the things to determine beauty? With a light complexion, straight hair, slim nose and narrow lips; Why do you call youraelf a negro? I am a negro because I am Black with broad lips and nappy hairo If you have a light complexion with straight hair and narrow lips, call yourself white.
