Each week, The Michigan Daily’s news desk will be publishing a most-read wrap-up of the previous week’s most popular articles based on the number of online reads each article received. Here are the five most-read from Oct. 15 to Oct. 21:
Students of color have reported much more police activity — and as a result, citations — at their fraternities than majority-white fraternities reported. This was most apparent at tailgates prior to the University of Michigan vs. Michigan State football game, which many are saying have lessened their trust of police officials.
The U-M v. State game also brought one incident in particular that has a student still healing more than two weeks later. A student was attacked on the corner of Church and Hill streets, and the student’s family is now looking for information about the attackers.
When Charles Murray came to campus earlier this month, students protested inside and outside Palmer Commons, saying his words are racist and indicative of him being white supremacist. Murray attempted to continue his speech despite several interruptions and students outwardly ignoring him.
October means most students are looking for housing and signing leases — however, this also means many housing companies are able to sidestep the city ordinance (which requires 70 days in between the current tenant moving in and the signing of a new lease) by holding early deposit and reservation days prior to the required timeframe expires.
Last Monday, four Ann Arbor City Council members knelt at the Ann Arbor Council meeting. This has since made national news and is yet another form of protest that has been happening locally and on the national level.
