Congratulations to Dr. Andrew Hsu for becoming the new president of the College of Charleston. I’m sure he was hired in what must have been a highly competitive field because he’s the best person for the job.

I found the sub-headline “school’s first nonwhite president” to be degrading to his achievement, unnecessary, and borderline depressing.

It’s this sort of subtle reminder about our obsession with race that we all need to put behind us.
