After focusing on our spring print issue of Looking Forward, I've been spending some time doing the inverse: looking backwards. What I did wrong, what I did right, what I would've done differently. Lingering in the past is often pointless, but reflection is good when done thoughtfully. Aristotle himself said that wisdom is a combination of experience and reflection. Without reflection, we learn nothing, and we become stagnant.
For many of us, the spring semester is a time of looking forward to the future. Summer travels, time to relax and self care await. For many graduating seniors, such as myself it is a horrific-yet-beautiful amalgamation of fear, uncertainty, and unbridled excitement. On a broader scale, perhaps this unique combination of emotions can be extrapolated to the future as a whole, not just our personal futures.
Change and chaos are two of the only constants in life. Since these are inevitable, we must find a way to live through it and find our own source of self-satisfaction. When I first started working for Garnet & Black, I never really wanted to be Editor-in-Chief. I had always told myself that I wouldn’t get too invested and that I wouldn’t work my way up to be the editor. But things changed. Things always change. I became invested. I found something that fulfills me like no other job I’ve had before.
Most people see boxing as a violent and competitive sport, which isn’t wrong. You may picture a scene from Rocky of Sylvester Stallone taking punch after punch to the face for half of the fight, before turning it around at the last minute and laying a beatdown onto his opponent. You may see the flashing lights and the blood splatter as a boxing glove smashes its way through the enemy’s chest, but that doesn’t exactly show the whole picture.
Every Sunday looks the same here in South Carolina, especially if you’re a Catholic. The churches are vast, inside and out, with colored-stained windows depicting different scenes from the Bible. Their intricate designs set a feeling of security in these faithful people.

“I hate the way you tie your shoes and the way you wear your plaid. I hate the way you blowout your hair. I hate it when you stare. I hate your dumb little sweaters and the way you think you are better. I hate you so much that it makes me sick. But mostly I hate the way I don’t hate you, not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.” -10 Things I Hate About 90’s Fashion
Native Americans are not hidden away on reservations in the west. They’re interlaced into our demographics and an integral part of our history and culture as a country. You may be surprised to learn that although the Catawba is the only federally recognized tribe in South Carolina, there are nine state-recognized tribes and at least six state-recognized groups or organizations too.
For years in America, the microaggressions directed towards Asians and Pacific Islanders has been normalized to the point where it's disregarded. Examples of this range from accusing Asian-Americans of eating their pet dogs to stereotypes such as “you’re Asian, you’re supposed to be good at math!” In media, the portrayal of Asians is just as bad. Before COVID-19, the hate against the AAPI community (Asian-American Pacific Islander) was usually stereotypical comments and insensitive jokes. However, ever since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s been much more than that. According to an article by NPR, there has been more than 9,000 incidents of anti-Asian hate crimes since COVID-19 started. Asians and Pacific Islanders say they are getting hit by a second virus, a “hate virus.” To completely understand what this community is going through, people need to see it through the lenses of Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders. After two students and two professors at UofSC participated in an anonymous interview, they were able to relay their experiences of being Asian in America, as well as their thoughts on how COVD-19 has affected their communities
Edit: On October 21st, 2021, the Faculty Principal of Carolina International House at Maxcy and Thornwell Colleges notified Garnet & Black that there are no plans to paint over the mural at Maxcy College. The student created mural from last year will not be erased, covered, or changed in any way.
You may have dissed crocheting in the past because it was your grandma’s favorite pastime hobby (maybe her only hobby), but don’t make that same mistake twice.
When we rang in the new year on the first day of 2020, we were blissfully unaware of the fact that for most of us, our lives would take a complete turn and that by the end of it, the world we live in would no longer be seen through rose-tinted glasses.
Back in 2019, Garnet & Black Magazine published an editorial titled “We are the Students Responsible,” covering Allison Dunavant's lawsuit against UofSC, then-President Harris Pastides and art professor David Voros. We focused on putting student activists in the spotlight and showed the ways students have, time and time again, pushed from below, aiming to motivate change at the top.
WHY PRINT A MAGAZINE? I’ve been asking myself that a lot lately. In the digital age, it seems to be a constant question.
Meet Cherry On Top, the brand making bags sweeter than an ice cream sundae. I got the inside scoop on the ladies behind the bags. The fur bag brand was created by best friends Grace Burns and Jillie Gretz. Cherry On Top is bringing Y2K style back in a way that would make Paris Hilton say “That’s hot.”
I've recently decided that fall is my favorite season. It's the latest addition to a growing list of self-discoveries from the past couple of months.
With the semester in full effect, many issues with the adapted COVID-19 schedule have become apparent. While everyone seems to be more concerned about the students battling a pandemic during their semester, it can be very easy to forget about those tasked with teaching.
