Recently, the United States has experienced a wave of social movements that include protests and digital social justice movements through Facebook and Twitter. These movements have been sparked as a response to systematic racism within the university landscape and the police force. This case study looks into systematic racism at a large public university college campus. The setting is in a college town on a city street that connects the city jail to the campus. Readers will be introduced to several characters that are important to the story before reading an account of the tug of war treatment of Black students in this community. This work is important to shed light on the encounters of Black people within systems that perpetuate White privilege in order to prepare future practitioners to address these issues in real life scenarios. This case study relies on theories like critical race theory (CRT) and intersectionality to allow the reader to deconstruct the case study using some of the theories that are vital to becoming a change agent in higher education. After studying the story thoroughly, readers are tasked to use their critical thinking skills to plan a resolution for Normal Inequality College.
