The Problem with the Way We Protest

This article will reflect over the nationwide demonstrations that took place in 2015 on college campuses. The author will express his perspective on college activism and what he sees as the source of tension and division among communities that could work together to solve very valid issues. Also, he will emphasize the point that everyone has the free agency to choose whether he or she will get involved in a protest, and shouldn't be demonized for that choice.
