One can find and enjoy many things when driving through Upstate New York: beautiful scenery, envious sunsets and an array of contradicting yard signs freckling and dotting every homeowner’s front yard. One very common sign details the purported dangers of wind energy, whether to the scenery, to the housing market or to the community’s health.

I write in reference to the interview The Lamron recently published with the student who made a joking reference to blackface on Snapchat. This was, to my eye, not a genuine interview at all but a forced public confession in which, to its shame, The Lamron was complicit. I have no specific idea how this came about: the decision of the student to request this interview and the agreement of The Lamron to participate. But the result strikes me as a put-up job in which the student mechanically repeats an apparently scripted apology. “Everyone is right to be angry at me,” “This is not about me,” “I was ignorant and privileged” the student said, clearly in order to avoid being suspended or expelled.
A previous article published in The Lamron reported Geneseo received a score of zero out of 100 when evaluated on transparency by the Buffalo Niagara Coalition for Open Government.
