WANG CENTER DESTRUCTION NEWS
SBU's Imperial President Begins Aesthetic Destruction of Wang Center
 


Tennis Courts 1, Asians 0
   Trees 1, Asians 0
White Privilege 1, Asians 0
 

 
    On this vast campus where 6-story dorms could be built in many empty spaces, just as the Hilton was built in 2013, or built more efficiently where infrastructure existed (high steam pipes), instead, an all-White building committee, never even thinking of the consequences, chose directly behind Wang AAC simply because it was two minutes walking distance closer to the academic mall than by LaValle, where piping was and could have provided the stadium with an eating facility, similar to the dorms at UT at Austin.
 

   Rather than spend money to have new plans drawn, or even have the common courtesy to speak to those opposed, SBU's imperial President Stanley let construction proceed. Having already applied for the Penn State presidency (they didn't want him) and Cornell (he is under consideration)*, he has no long term interest in SBU. His goal is to be gone before the dorms are complete, before proof of the lie about the dorms height vs. the Wang Center is obvious for all to see.

   Where once the pagoda tower stood alone against the sky, making SBU the only SUNY campus with such an iconic structure it can be recognized just by that icon, now the bright stadium lights can be seen. Soon they will be replaced with 6-story dorm lights coming half-way up the tower's height.


 
   Already rated one of the ugliest campuses in the US, with red brick buildings designed by prison architects Kelly & Gruzen and continued by a President and Facilities VP who both lack aesthetic vision (comparable to the new SBU logo), the one building that gave SBU character will be aesthetically destroyed. Not only its pagoda tower but the beauty and serenity of its koi pond garden and the use of its special theatre windows will be lost - forever.  
                             
* On 9/30 the new Cornell President was announced.

"Yes, It's Legal to Film the Cops"
Although police might intimidate bystanders into thinking otherwise, it's perfectly legal to film the cops - not only in NY, but everywhere in the US - as long as you don't get in the way. Donna Lieberman, ED of the NY Civil Liberties Union, encourages people to keep using their phones to film troubling police incidents. The more people post these videos online, she said, the more likely other people will reach for their own phone when they see cops doing something questionable.

Domestic Violence in Filipino Culture
But you know, my experiences with my father's abusive behavior, and the way our peers, our close family friends treated him despite their knowledge of his being an abuser has made me aware that domestic violence is normalized in Filipino society. That made me want to counter that sort of thinking, because my father would have been a better man if he didn't think wife-beating or verbally abusing his family was a normal, acceptable thing.
