Why I’m Proud I Changed My Last Name

Mandatory Minimums a Better Path to Justice

To The Editor: Re: “With Race, Holder’s Weak Action” The Hoya, Sept. 30, A3 I, too, have a bitter taste left in my mouth by the fact that those responsible for the financial collapse of the last decade seemed to have been simply slapped on the hand and told, “Don’t[Read More…]

Holder Not Responsible for Economic Disparity

To The Editor: I find deeply tenuous Hunter Main’s argument (“With Race, Holder’s Weak Action,” The Hoya, Sept. 30, A3) that Attorney General Eric Holder’s racial legacy is murky due to his failure to prosecute high-level financial executives responsible for excesses of the 2008 recession.
