More Racism at CSU

I was discussing with one of my classes the recent protests surrounding the presidential search process. I asked them what problems they saw at CSU that most needed to be corrected. One student complained that when she forgot to bring her student ID with her, she was not allowed in the library to do work she needed to do (she is perceived as young and black). I pointed out that, in the time since the new library opened, I have never once been asked for an ID when entering the library (people think I am old and white).
