Dear White Anti-Racist Allies: Let me start by telling you my truth: I am tired. Racism is exhausting! With Nazi signs painted on garages, racist graffiti at OPRF, and a banana, blackface, Bob-Marley Becky in our community, this black woman needs a break.

My Christmas started about a week ago on a quiet Saturday morning. As usual, I got up early, fixed coffee, turned on my Christmas lights and sat in the 14th floor windows of my high-rise, my favorite place on a winter morning.

As a college student, it's hard to deny the enormous presence of alcohol on campus. Campus town main streets are filled with bars and liquor stores, social media accounts market the lifestyle directly to us, and lax university/local ordinances make it easy to get access, making alcohol a staple of college culture for the foreseeable future.
