#TheRealUW is, in not even my first four months of college, I was followed by two guys in a black car who repeatedly honked their horn while simultaneously yelling “FUCK YOU N****R” at me from their car window. The fact that I was walking alone and there were barely any people around to do anything frightened me a lot. From that point on I found it extremely hard to feel safe in the place I had to live for the next four years. Seeing that these incidents have happened to other students of color all around campus only increases my impression of not feeling safe here. No student should have to be fearful of just walking down the street. They should not bear the burden of being harassed and the next day expected to attend class with a clear mind.
