Reflecting on Oct 8

Today in class we discussed social justice and privilege. After reflecting all of the comments, I still remain worried on how much worse will everything will get before all of privilege is finally gone. After listening to all of our presentations, I gained an actual understanding of the privileges around me and the privileges I had just because I am white. I guess I have always had the mentality that if I wasn’t racist that no one else would be either. Come to find out, I was very wrong. I think if we stay informed, that we can eventually reach a point where none of this is an issue anymore. Know the difference between racism and prejudice. Know the background your students come from. Understand their culture. Know their likes and dislikes. Know what makes them happy and know what makes them offended or sad. More importantly, GET TO KNOW YOUR STUDENTS.
