After reading the article titled “Segregation at MU,” I could not help but feel the need to enlighten the author. As a recent graduate of MU, I was involved in many campus organizations. I guess it was the way I was raised or the simple understanding that I belong everywhere and that I am welcomed by all to participate, no matter the color of my skin or name of the organization. . . .
A random girl sits down next to me with a scowl on her face, talks to my friend two feet from me, doesn’t look at me, and doesn’t say hi. I poke her gently and say, “Hi, my name is Chris.”
She says, “I’m leaving.” . . .
Find that place. The place where color, race, gender, sexuality, and religion do not exist. Enter the mindset where your life is dictated by your actions and not by the personifications of others. Not some personification developed by the writers on BET or VH1. No. This life goes far beyond the social norm. . . .
