It’s not a big issue here at K-State. I’ve lived in a lot of places in and out of the United States, and Kansas is not in the highest rate of racism. A lot of people here are educated with this, especially in a college town like Manhattan.

I haven’t experienced racism yet. People are pretty nice and not judgemental here.

People can be very ignorant to racism, and they’re very much like, ‘It doesn’t affect my life so why should I care?’ People are taught this way. It’s ingrained in them.
