Editorial Board apologizes for printing comments in Compubookie article
Last week, an article titled “Compubookie predicts SDC to win Carnival buggy races” was printed in the sports section of The Tartan. This article contained a section titled “The Field,” in which inappropriate comments promoting racial stereotypes and connotations were printed. The Tartan apologizes for the comments that were allowed to be printed.
Compubookie is an annual article submitted by an anonymous author. The article does not reflect The Tartan’s opinion, nor does The Tartan wish to promote any of the stereotypes that were allowed to be printed. Typically, these types of connotations and stereotypes are removed from the Compubookie submission. This year, the failure to remove all inappropriate comments was an unfortunate editorial oversight, and The Tartan editorial board apologizes for the comments’ appearance in last week’s issue.
