Danesha Shelton, social work senior, provides a self-written monologue at the Stand Against Racism rally put on by the YWCA at the Amphitheatre on Thursday. “Is it enough today? If I hear it one more time I’ll say something. That’s it, I’m going to say something. These are thoughts that I have a lot. It’s a routine that I have not yet established. It takes 30 days to form a habit, in those 30 days I ask you how many social injustices did you see? How many racist jokes did you hear, more than 30? Did you say something every time, did you stand up against it? When will it be enough for you? Is it when another person dies, another protest, another riot, another violent rally? Is it enough today? Will you stand against racism today?”
