segregation is an issue that
not only affects schools, but
churches and, at times, the
workplace. It is referred to
as the separation of races by

Melissa Tortal, an Asian-
American senior non-profit
administration major, believes
the issueis definitely prevalent
on campus. She said, "Walk
into the cafe or KR's and you
can see it. Not everyone self-
segregates, but it is there."

Faculty and staff also agree
with Tortal. Kevin Kibble, as-
sociate chaplain, believes that
a large majority of students

Kibble believes a reason for
self-segregation is "our human
tendency to find comfort, sol-
ace and friendship in people
that we perceive have a large
degree of similarity with our

Ludine Pierre,
a Haitian-Ameri-
can junior psy-
chology major,
believes the
reason is be-
cause Southern

different back-
grounds and up-

easier for a Hispanic to be-
friend another Hispanic be-
cause they share the same cul-

In 2005, the Miami Herald

featured an article dem-
onstrating the self-
segregation of teen-
agers entering
high school in JSS

South Florida.
A freshman .'■'■.'■'

high school ■H
student was
quoted, "Kids
the color of skin
anymore." Yet, ex-
perts showed that
many high school
students largely be-
friended their own. S
"Many of our stu- B8
dents are far from
home and need some Mm
sense of solidar-
ity of who they are
and what they are
hoping to find out <ii*
while they are here.
In most cases, but not
all, these parameters fall along
racial lines by default," Kibble

Another reason for segrega-
tion at Southern is academies.
Depending on the geographi-
cal location of an academy,
many of them aren't particu-
larly diverse. In the Southern
Union, many academies are
predominately of one racial
color, unlike those in some
parts of the North and out
West. The academy mentality
usually lingers into college,
without consciousness of the
segregation being caused.

Stuart King, a white senior
international business major
who attended Georgia-Cum-
berland Academy, agreed.
"For me, college was just on
a larger scale from academy.
I applied the same formula I
used in high school, when it
came to activities, and brought
it to college, especially my

The reasons for self-
segregation are logical. But
is it a good or bad concept to
have on a Christian campus?

Are students in some 4
way or another neglecting
others because of color?

Pierre said, "It is not .
necessarily a bad thing,
however, I think that if i
we are not willing to
be open to other cul- ffi
tures we end up ste-
reotyping big time... we
mistreat people based
on assumptions."

Kibble believes it
is important to find a M
system of support and
solidarity. But it is
also "very important
that young people in
an academic institution
generate a healthy curios-
ity about other people and
their ways."

While cultural identity
is important, it sometimes
deters people from getting to

know individuals from the in-
side out, instead of the out-
side in. For many, cultural
identity becomes a security

"Christ did not discrimi-
nate on the cross, why
should we separate our-
selves as his children?"
Pierre said. "We should
agree to disagree, because
everyone is not always go-
ing to be on the same page.
One thing we should agree
upon though is that we are
one in Christ."

Ten minutes have passed
and Miguel realizes he's been
standing by the condiment ta-
ble staring at people. Embar-
rassed, he quickly looks for a
table. He spots a small group
of White college kids laugh-
ing at a table by the window.
Walking in their direction,
he decides to do something a
little uncomfortable.... "Is this
seat taken?" He asks.

What do Christian women really want?

V Villi I M" ^>" _ ^.__„ n „„;n»™ said. "Someone

Chris Mateo

(; n >mmiTf)B

What do women want? It's
an age-old question that makes
every man berserk trying to
find the answer. We scamper
through our young-adult lives
thinking diamonds, clothing,
shoes and other material pos-
sessions will suffice, but, yet,
it's not enough. Sometimes
it seems it would be easier to
he Mel Gibson and somehow
possess the power to know
what every woman desires,
but, unfortunately, this is the
real world. And the reality is—
we don't know.

Even scholars have a hard
time figuring it out. Alex Shal-
man, a psychologist and blog-
ger, says the answer to every
woman's wants is simply— a
man. Sounds obvious, but is it
that simple?

A September 2006 issue of
Glamour UK magazine, stated

that a woman wants a man
that allows her to be who she is
at all times-mood swings and
all. Monica O'Brien, a personal
and professional development
blogger, states she wants a
man that makes her feel spe-
cial and challenges her. Other
female bloggers mention they
want men who are reliable.

But as a Christian man look-
ing for a Christian woman, the
better question is... what do
Christian women want? Are
the wants of a Christian girl
different than that of a Glam-
our girl, or any other non-
Christian woman?

To find solutions to these
questions and more, I went to
the obvious source— women.

Laurel Dominesey, a single
senior non-profit administra-
tion and development major,
stated, "What I want is stabil-
ity and comfort. A man of God
who knows he's a man and
doesn't look to me for valida-

Vexation: Two things
actually. Breakouts (like
the ones on your face that
you thought you'd be able
to leave behind in high
school), and the chemical
laden products I use to treat
them. Double whammy.

Solution: Eco-friendly
YET effective skin prod-

Look for skin products that
use natural ingredients like
tea tree oil, witch hazel or
willow bark. Avoid prod-
ucts thai je parabens.


Clarification: Most
ingredients will ultimately
end up in nature, so the
fewer synthetic ones we
use, the better. Plus, only
about 11 percent of the
10,500 ingredients used
in personal care products
are screened for safety, so
it's important to look for
natural, less questionable
ones when shopping. Burt's
Bees Herbal Blemish Stick
(which you can find at the
Campus Shop), Derma E
Very Clear Spot Blemish
Treatment and Desert Es-
sence Blemish Touch Stick
are a few good ones.

Soundseasyandattainable; she said "I care about yoy,

rhen why do we have a prob- who you have become and how

lem getting the girl?

"Women want a man that
takes initiative and is able
to pursue us," said Angela
McPherson, a sophomore
mass communication major.
She continued to say, "We
want options... though it may
seem like you're not the ideal
candidate for a girl, go for it,
why not?"

Wow! It seems that Chris-
tian women are truly looking
for secure godly men. Ironic,
isn't it? But are their views
on sex different than that of a
non-Christian woman?

"I'm looking for a Chris-
tian man where I don't have to
state my boundaries because
he upholds the same mor-
als and principles that I do,"

God has changed you."

So when it comes down to
it, these responses boil down
to one word: confidence.
Christian women want con-
fident men, not just any type
of confidence, but confidence
that comes from Christ and
not our male egos. As young
Christian men, we need to be
confident of our own morals
and principles, especially, our
boundaries for sex, before we
go out into the jungle and pur-
sue that hot lady-friend.

Here it is guys— real Chris-
tian women with real answers.
Next time you're on the Prom-
enade and you see that attrac-
tive girl, introduce yourself.
We can't all be Mel Gibson,
but we can try.

Clueless gift givers can take hear

Rachel Hopkins


It can sometimes be dif-
ficult to think of original gifts
for people on your Christ-
mas shopping list. Here's a
few ideas that may not have
crossed your mind, but just
might be a hit.

1. A magazine subscrip-
tion - This may sound kind of
lame, but if someone on your
gift list has a specific interest
(or just buys the same maga-
zine at the check out counter
every month), this can be a
winner. Lots of people enjoy
reading magazines, but are too
cheap to buy them on a regu-

lar basis. Plus, it's the gift that
keeps on giving and everyone
likes to get mail that has noth-
ing to do with how much they
owe Southern.

choose what they wants. It*
be a huge hit with the humai»|

tarian in your life.

llt's North Carolina's title to lose

Davis Wallace

2 basketball is back to
I Ml strength with new young
talent, exciting teams, and of
course everybody's favorite,
March Madness. There is one
big question this season: "Is
this North Carolina's year?"
I Last year it seemed like it was
I their year. They started off
I strong by winning their first
Ii8 games, then winning n
lof their last 13 games. They
Ionised their way to a second
[straight ACC title for the first
Itime since 1998. They even
I made the final four for the
■first time since 2005 when
Hiey won it all. However,
■even with the 2008 National
fclayer of The Year, in Tyler
■Bansbrough, North Carolina
Bras not able to come away
■nth the National Title. Now
with players like Kevin Love,

Mario Chalmers and Derrick
Rose all currently in the NBA,
North Carolina has no reason
to lose.

There is no time
like the present
time for Hans-
brough and the

boys to bring
the title back to

Chapel Hill. ?

This year has to be the year
for the North Carolina Tar-
heels. Tyler Hansbrough is re-
turning for his senior season,
All-American's Ty Lawson and
Wayne Ellington are return-
ing for their junior seasons
instead of going pro like they

almost did earlier in the sum-
mer. Also bringing in amazing
freshmen recruits like Tyler
Zeller, Ed Davis, Larry Drew II
and Justin Watts. This might
be the best team North Caro-
lina produced since the 1997-
1998 Antwan Jamison and
Vince Carter led team.

North Carolina has ad-
vanced a step closer to the
national title game since Tyler
Hansbrough has been at UNC.
So again, there is no time like
the present for Hansbrough
and the boys to bring the title
back to Chapel Hill. Right now
it is looking like injuries will
be the only thing that will stop
them from winning it all. If
not this year, there is no tell-
ing when North Carolina will
have another great opportu-
nity to win a title. It could be
in two years; it could be in five
years; that's why it's Carolina's
title to lose.

"We should have played on
■H e outside courts because

this has been a street ball tour-
nament and I've loved every
second of it, baby," said Mike
Boyd, director of intramurals.

The Muffin Staffers came
out with a 3-0 lead at the start,
and then Toon Squad stormed
back with a 5-0 run. Knutson
used his size and strength to
get to the basket every time,
but the Toon Squad used pes-
ky defense to disrupt him as
much they could.

"Mark Knutson is a really
big guy and a great player,"
said Zack Livingston, a senior
mass communication major.
"There's nothing you can do
to really stop him, but you can
try to contain him, and that's
what we did."

Lemon made a reverse lay-
up to make the score 10-9.
Knutson answered right back
by making a lay-up of his own
to tie the game and force sud-

den death overtime. On the
first play of overtime, Lemon
took a contested mid-range
jump shot to end it all. "Sean
Lemon came through and I'm
just glad he's on my team,"
Livingston said.

"My team wanted me to
take the shot, so I took it and it
went in," said Lemon, a soph-
omore allied health major. "A
year ago I wasn't playing bas-
ketball at all, so playing now
feels great."

There was some controversy
throughout the tournament as
some players couldn't handle
the street ball style of play and
wanted referees to call fouls in
the games for them.

"We ought to have refs next
time on every court," Boyd
said. "The night went well re-
gardless, everyone had a good
time but we'll definitely fix that
problem next time."
