So many of my classmates continue to defend a racist who committed treason against this country. We talk about honor, we talk about caring about all students. I’m in a fraternity, but still I cannot think of a day on campus that I am not made uncomfortable simply because I’m black.
I am constantly reminded of the man who fought to enslave my people and the only acknowledgment of the struggle that they endured is a tiny little sign you have to be 20 feet from to see. It’s a joke.
How would you feel going to a school who’s namesake fervently believed that you were incapable of being educated?
