As long as there is a diverse set of groups that interact with one another, racism and race-tensions will live. This issue may derive from past personal observations, stories told from friends, or simple jokes shared between friends. All the stereotypes that our communities form about a group of people based off of skin color, clothing, piercings, tattoos, sexual orientation are nothing more than personal opinions that have gained national fame and consistent recognition throughout history. Videos and articles that have become viral and showcase support of equal rights forRead More

As I sat down to attempt a viewing of Django for the third time, promptly pressing the stop button as the display pictured an innocent black man being ripped to shreds by dogs, my empathy got the best of me and I felt the wave of disgust fill my stomach. The realistic violence of the scene caused me to step back and wonder, yet again, what the appeal of these visuals could be. Along with what it says about our progressing society that even an elderly woman in her 80′sRead More
