To be a Black student at Butler is much akin to being a hostage some days. In other words, despite the fact that I pay as much as the next person does to attend this university, I often feel robbed of my agency because of the extreme disregard the administrators, faculty, and students show for racial, socioeconomic, and religious diversity. Like Zora Neale Hurston once said, “If you are silent about your pain, they’ll kill you and say you enjoyed it.” That is why I keep fighting, loudly and out in the broad light of day, to change something here.
