This one voice of reason went widely unheard in all the news of the protesters shutting down the Milo Yiannopoulos event at DePaul University.
Luckily, Louder With Crowder brought it to our attention and we're going to share it.
With protesters on stage shouting vulgarities and even threatening Milo, she took the mic and went on a rant that was nothing short of amazing.
“You’re in a place and you’re not respecting it. I’m a white supremacist now? Because I believe in hard work and deciding that I need to make a life for myself makes me a racist, a bigot and a white supremacist? You’re not working hard right now. You’re being lazy and disrespectful, and I’m pretty sure your parents didn’t raise you to be disrespectful,” she said while dealing with interruptions.
“It’s an opinion, guys. It’s not going to kill you. If you believe in who you are, and know who you are, it will not bother you. I know who I am: I’m Kate Danforth, I am a math major and junior at DePaul University and I’m working my ass off to become something,” she added.
Milo commended the student on her speech and pointed out, “If there’s anyone perpetuating stereotypes about blacks, it’s them.”
Common sense is beautiful.
