A Saint Joseph’s University student reads in a fellow SJU student’s story on language based aggression on campus. The student says “I felt judged… I had never been in a situation where someone told me to not speak my native language because it threatened them.” The story follows with how it exposed them to the painful reality that racism and discrimination are very present in their life and in campus culture.
