Our Hartford blogging BFFs over at Sad City Hartford have come up with a fantastic article about the problem with racism and elitism at Trinity College. Seriously worth a read. Here’s a quick excerpt so you can get an idea of the situation:
“Several students of color said that white students on campus often mistake them for “Hartford locals” — a term they said is used in a derogatory way.
When students use the expression, Hernandez said, it means “you’re not good, you don’t belong here.” That’s a message he said some students of color have gotten from other students at Trinity.”
Seriously folks, there’s no reason to hate on anyone because of their race or social standing. We’re all in this together, keep an open mind.
