NAACP Addresses Racism On Campus Of UMD

Last week, Bowie State University student Richard Collins III was attacked by University of Maryland student Sean Urbanski. In the latest installment of Politics963, Harold Fisher spoke with Bob Ross, president of NAACP Prince George’s County Branch, about what the University needs to do ensure the safety of its students. Mr. Ross, indicated the branch intends to present the asks of the students, originally presented last year, to the University’s President Wallace Lou. The $100,000 commitment from UMD to help eradicate the racism is not sufficient, according to Ross.
