How Does This Take Courage?
Toni Smith, a senior at Manhattanville College, was booed at Mount St. Mary at a game Thursday night.
Smith is protesting "that the government's priorities are not on bettering the quality of life for all of its people, but rather on expanding its own power." She has turned away from the flag all season.
Manhattanville president Richard Berman said he told Smith "what she's doing is courageous and difficult."
Not looking at the flag is difficult? If you want to make a statement, fine. Don't pretend that you are somehow a martyr because some people disagree. Ohhhh...people booed. I've been called names a lot worse than what she has experienced to my face just for my own political views. I've been in classrooms where other students had to physically restrain classmates because Preppy dared express the idea that while our policies may not be perfect in the eyes of every single person on the planet, they didn't warrant 9-11. Those incidents don't even require courage. They aren't terribly difficult either. Maybe they aren't pleasant, but they sure as hell aren't as bad as what some other people face for dissent.
