US students nationwide are increasingly responding bt organizing campus protests and hunger strikes over what they say are racial discrimination activities, college administration’s inadequate and tone-deaf response to their concerns.

Campuses around the country have seen protests from Missouri to California. Ithaca College in New York, Smith College in Massachusetts, and Yale University in Connecticut have also been dealing with similar actions by students over alleged marginalization and racial discrimination.

Some say that it is time these student groups begin accomplishing these necessary actions through their organization, tenacity and courage, pointing to the old days of he 1960's sit-ins to protest the Vietnam war.
others say political correctness has gone too far.
