No matter how well you speak, how nicely you dress, or how educated and “respectable” we make ourselves appear, we are still targeted, attacked, and/or perceived as threats. It’s tragic when people of color can’t even gain a higher education without fearing for their safety. Yesterday myself and a lot of other black students, poc’s, and allies staged a great demonstration in solidarity with those suffering at Mizzou. So happy I got to be a part of it.

So my university is starting to put these up around campus today.
