Angry, appalled and afraid, a group of freshmen gathered at the clock tower last night, Nov. 9, to voice their disapproval of the newly elected Trump. The students, some from Fusz’s Diversity and Global Citizenship floor,  encouraged passersby to join in their cause and speak out against injustices they have felt during this election. Janae Robinson, a MLK scholar and African-American studies major, expressed her distress, saying, “We are dehumanized and are not going to be heard…I’m going to have to explain to my children if they’re worthy.” Another SLU student, Vi-Vi Phan said this decision is “disheartening” for her family, who immigrated here 22 years ago, and Jerris Kirkwood got phone calls from his mother and father in tears. Trump’s victory has sparked fear in these SLU students, a man who they believe represents hate and bigotry.
