I am sorry that it seems like I am always speaking negatively about you.
I treasure the skills that you have taught me and many that have enhanced ever since I got here. I am a better critical thinker, more inquisitive and so on than many and I recognize this as a privilege of going to DePauw.
I am sorry DePauw that I inform those outside of the injustices and marginalizations that occur to some of your students. Many of which you have refused to do anything about.
I am sorry that you are in denial of the pain and disappoint that you cause so many of your students.
I am sorry that you are in denial of the existing traditions that support segregation and hinder community building.
I am sorry that you drown or suffocate anyone that is different (and embraces their differences) and their opinions.
I am sorry that you don’t see the hard work, so many students and I put in, in making you better.
I am sorry DePauw that I have a burning desire to use the skills you have taught me in the real world starting with you.
I am sorry DePauw that I ever thought I would contribute so much to your community, color my world to you, sing my culture to you and dance with yours.
I am sorry that I think ONE day, sorry I mean 8 hours out your day, of discussing the importance of diversity is important.
I am sorry that I haven’t accepted that I am only an option to you and always will be.
I am sorry that a day of mandatory discussion on marginalization is too damn hard for you to do.
I am sorry that you side with students who would rather smoke or drink 8 hours a day than have diversity dialogue. Or rather have a day off to do NOTHING than discuss issues some of their peers face.
I am sorry that you think it is uncomfortable for students to talk about racial, religious, sexual, gender, and socio-economic status sensitive topics.
I am sorry that you don’t see that you shoved and continue to shove the fact that BLACK down my throat.
I am sorry that you don’t see that I was Black yesterday, Black today and will be Black tomorrow.
I am sorry DePauw that you wont accept that I am uncomfortable everyday.
I am sorry I spent an entire semester and a half trying to plan a day of discussion that only took a day to throw down the river.
I am sorry that I feel like I ask you for exactly what you should and can give me but you feel like it’s too much to offer.
I am sorry that I think and at this point KNOW that you are a hypocrite.
I am sorry that I think and at this point KNOW that you are selfish.
I am sorry that even though I am only a Sophomore, I am ready to graduate.
I am sorry that being a private 60,000 dollar institution makes you NO different but rather common.
I am sorry DePauw that I thought so much of you.
I am sorry——–actually I AM NOT.
