Racism and a Christian University

He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life. – Muhammad Ali

If you can, please take time to read a post that was written by my friend Dae.

Maybe you’ll roll your eyes at this post and the point Dae’s trying to make.
Maybe you’ll be saddened or angered.
Maybe you’ll write it off with him — and people like him — being “too sensitive.”

But he is speaking out to the emotional scars students of color have received through this institution.

In the words of Shane Claiborne: 
Victimization is about powerlessness, and justice is about amplifying the voices of those who have been silenced. 

Dae’s taking the risk in raising his voice.
