Statement from Senator Ellis on A&M Decision

"Unfortunately, abolishing the legacy program at Texas A&M doesn't change the fact that the school is 82% anglo, while the state is less than fifty percent white. This is just the first step in many that are needed to correct the existing minority gap." --Rodney Ellis
