These red brick walls have sheltered me for the past two years. As my junior year approaches, I know what’s expected of me. This is crunch time, right? SATs and ACTs and overall college readiness. Well, I’m already ready. I’m still grateful for the teachers and counselors who have guided me ...

Just a little over a week ago, the Anti-Defamation League, a non-profit organization that aims to combat hate speech, classified Pepe the Frog as a hate symbol.
