Earlier this summer, I was discussing with a family member the upcoming presidential election, and talking about how much I liked much of Bernie Sanders’ platform.

Is Kansas racist? I would like to think not. However, after the article The Associated Press wrote about the incident with Melvin and Angelica Hale, I can’t really be sure.

I’m a minority. You may look at me and think, “What? No, you’re not. You’re a middle class, Caucasian, college graduate woman.” Exactly. I’m a woman.

I could have gotten sushi in the amount of time it took me to get my food at the Hornet Express on Monday. Thirty minutes before I had an interview with the dean of Liberal Arts and Sciences, I headed over to the Hornet Express for a sandwich, chips and a bottle of milk. A simple order, right?

Walking across the Emporia State campus, it’s hard to find someone without some kind of piercing or tattoo.
