I'm a junior as well as the Legion of Black Collegians Student Government communications chair and a general body member of the NAACP Collegiate Chapter. But titles and involvement aside, I am also an African-American female. I have noticed, but more so it has been brought to my attention by many of my peers, that the MU Clery releases do not adequately describe assumed perpetrators, specifically African-American males.
