We all have a racial identity. Some of you probably think about this constantly. Some of you maybe have never thought about it. In many places, white racial identity is seen as the “default”. Hence, people think only minorities such as Latino/Latinx/Hispanic, African-American, Latino/Hispanic, Native American, Asian, etc. have a race.
However, we all have experiences with race, whether they are apparent, hidden, unconscious or implied. Maybe you have had direct experiences, or witness them happening to others. Maybe you have had different experiences from people you know as a result of your racial identity.
Think of your own experience with race or racism and write a reflection about it. If you cannot think of your own life, you can reflect on a public issue or event.
