On Saturday, July 4, about 100 students and locals gathered in Triangle Park for a protest against racism at Kansas State.

The protest was co-organized by Tori Swanson, senior in psychology, and Miranda Urban, junior in social work. Though the protest was meant to address wide-spread intolerance present on campus, it comes closely on the heels of a recent conflict that centered around the tweet of one student.

From the park, participants marched through campus, stopping on the front lawn and porch of President Richard Myers Residence. On their path, they chanted “Beware K-State, the students aren’t safe.”
