D.C. just recently found themselves fighting back about playing music in an area that’s been doing so long before the gentrifiers decided to show up. Now, here’s the latest in colonizer bulls***, as seen on NewsOne:

Now, some students at Howard University are upset about local residents using their campus as a dog park. The solution? One colonizer says “move the campus.”

Fox 5 spoke to Malakhi Briggs, a sophomore at Howard, who said, “‘The Yard’ is for the students and although everyone loves pets, I feel like it’s disrespectful to have the pets just running around, especially when there are several parks around here, If they come on ‘The Yard’ and they’re just walking through, I don’t necessarily have a problem with that, but I still feel like there are other ways to get around D.C. without having to cut through a college campus.”

Sean Grubbs-Robishaw, a local resident, admits to cutting through “The Yard” with his dog and said, “So, they’re in part of D.C. so they have to work within D.C. If they don’t want to be within D.C. then they can move the campus. I think we just need to work together and I don’t think it should be a he or there or here… It’s our community and that’s how it should be.”
