A week after the Tom Tancredo fiasco at UNC Chapel Hill, a conservative student organization is bringing another former legislator to campus to speak.
Youth for Western Civilization, the small UNC-CH student group that last week brought the former Colorado congressman to campus for what turned out to be an aborted speaking engagement, will tonight present Virgil Goode, a former Virginia congressman.
Goode will speak at 6:30 p.m. at the student union on campus.
Meanwhile, student groups bothered by the western youth student group — which has been assailed by some and labeled racist — are organizing a "Speak-out for Diversity" at the same time.
That event will be at The Pit on campus, and is intended, according to a press release, to "allow students from a variety of different groups and backgrounds to explain why they are opposed to the goals of Youth for Western Civilization and why they believe in fostering an educational environment that allows all people to thrive."
