The Day After the Election

The day after the presidential election, the minorities of OU came together and we marched on campus to show we are and will remain unified. We do know that Oklahoma is a red state, but we want everyone on campus to know that we will stand together as the minorities to help each other. It didn’t matter if we were black, Mexican, Asian or gay, we wanted to show that we are strong and we will not let our campus fall apart. We don’t want to segregate the campus, but it is nice to know we have each other to lean on during hard times. In those moments of being together, we learned so much about our different cultures and beliefs. It’s amazing what you can learn by just listening to someone for five minutes and being interested in their story. It’s really something to think about.
