Students at Duke University are taking a stand against unfair treatment of community members based solely on their race. According to this article  published by Colorlines a primarily black news outlet, the students have exercised the peaceful protest of sitting in for the past six days. The eight students say they are participating because of alleged racist treatment of a staff member which was published in the Duke Chronicle.

The sit-in is just one example of many actions being taken by colleges and their students who feel like marginalization and alternative treatment based on race is an issue of prevalence.

The protest had remained peaceful and is gaining in support.
