My reaction to injustice is often times anger. Anger, I feel, is an appropriate reaction to inadequate bathroom conditions, racist rhetoric spoken by fellow peers, or a lackluster administration. It is as valid as any other reaction. So, why is it that students of color are expected to calmly listen...

College. The illustrious chapter of your life looming after high school. High schoolers will cry, scream, and stress over it. It’s part of the American Dream.

Coronavirus Spreads Anti-Asian Racism

Winta Tekle, Sahuaro News Editor

February 18, 2020

If we are to talk about how racism hides in plain sight, even in situations where it's painfully obvious, we should talk about the coronavirus. My twitter feed has spawned dozens of hoax tik tok, where false scenarios are being passed on as reality. In one video, a man parading as a doctor tests a vi...
