Transcript several current hot topics inspire students to take action Censorship was a demonstration of fear," Sophomore Adrian Ozuna said. " Censorship is anti-democratic and a threat by fundamentalists to control thought. Censorship organizations have attempted to oversee what was taught in the schools." Ozuna said, 'The American Family Association stipulates family and school values that should be followed, and those standards that are not met, should be. For example, The Diary of Anne Frank was banned in high schools because it teaches religion." But books are not the only medium subject to censorship. On the subject of music, freshman Howard Rushing said, 'Two Live Crew was targeted against black art ists. It was felt they were too violent." Freshman Ralph Aberico said, "The sherrif who arrested Two Live Crew was taking bribes and was not reprimanded because rap uses profanity." Sophomore Nicholas Mortemayor told how MTV "...banned Madonna's 'Justify My Love' video because it showed her making love to an androgynous charachter. Television is censored by each production and the cinema has been censoring itself since the 1930's. Censorship is a limitation on education and intellectual growth." Mortemayor added, "Editing and cutting a film sometimes alters the film's meaning and the director's intentions." -Merril Baum Below: Banned books were displayed at the Sattellite by the ProgressiveStudent Union.

It was so important to him he wanted a constitutional amendment. Sophomore Adrian Ozuna said, "It is truly sad. There are three million homeless in the U.S. and we argue about a flag." It seems strange that with all the flag waving, no one really knew the correct ettiquette for the Stars & Stripes. Ozuna said, "Almost every flag is improperly displayed. It seems no one has read the flag code. When Bush wrapped himself in it, he was flagrantly violating that code. We should be interested in what the flag symbolizes, not the actual cloth." He also noted that the flag burning was a statement on the condition of the nation, not as a sign of disrespect. We should be interested in the quality of life in this country, not whether we are burning a piece of cloth that means less and less. Many of our country's war veterans who had put their lives on the line were offended when protesters burned flags.To them it added serious insult to painful injury. Ozuna said, "Less than 3% of ths country's population uses food stamps, yet they are used as an excuse for this country's troubles. That is what happened with the flag burning issue.. .it is just another distraction from the real issues that need to be faced today." -Merril Baum r* he abortion issue of the 1990's was a reflection of the American culture. Sophomore Adrian Ozuna said, "We Americans don't know who we are anymore. We are still a teen-aged country. On one hand we want to change, and on the other we want to keep the status quo." Senior Andrew Monzon said, "when I came to UH in 1988,1 was a pro-life advocate. However, I quickly changed my mind as my education progressed. I think my religeous upbringing heavily contributed to my pro life ideas." It seems that pro-choice meant you wanted the right to make your own decisions, and pro-life meant you im posed your views on everyone else whether they agreed with you or not. Sophomore Monica Lopez said, "We used to feel protected by the Supreme Court, but it is different now and we need to show concern. The way to do this is to march and protest, but no one wants to make waves. It's very difficult to find people who are willing to march for pro-choice, but it's easy to find people who want it." Abortion was a really hot topic..one never knew what to expect when discussing it. Many felt that it was inappropriate to spend tax dollars debating something that should have nothing to do with the govornment.- Merril Baum Below: Protestors listen at a pro-choice rally held at the Satellite during Fall '91.
