The State

February 11, 1986

Someone knocked down three cardboard, wood and plastic shacks erected on the Stanford University campus as a reminder of oppressive living conditions endured by South African blacks--and black student leaders called it an example of racism. Erected last month--just before the visit of South African Anglican Bishop Desmond Tutu--by a student organization called Stanford Out of South Africa, the shacks were seen still standing by a campus security officer late Saturday night, but had been flattened when the officer passed again on his rounds three hours later. Black Student Union President Steven Phillips called the damage "racist," and "a disgrace," adding that it showed "total disregard for those people struggling to aid the people of South Africa."
