Lab 1: First Idea

Living with Racial Stereotypes in a World of Turmoil”

How does it feel to be in the skin your in?

Is it easy? Is it difficult? or Do you even notice?

In such a diverse world, it’s sad we have to have these¬†conversations still. At this point we should be way past color and on to being a better to each other.angela-davis-quote

Instead people like me and you are still living with racial stereotypes every day.

According to the University of Notre Dame, racial stereotypes are ¬†“automatic and exaggerated mental pictures that we hold about all members of a particular racial group.”

That means that we somehow allow ourselves to create stereotypes by what we choose to take away from particular groups of people.

Living in this world as a black woman is difficult sometimes. I am here to take you on a journey of how to rise above racial stereotypes no matter who you are we can all practice creating better memories of people.

People are a lot of time ignorant (the problem) and refuse to learn about the many faces and perspectives of this world…instead they judge before even taking the time to learn.

“EACH ONE TEACH ONE” -unknown

Implementing this into our daily practices will help to decrease racial stereotypes its a cause and effect type of deal…you put out what you want back.

Everyone wants to be understood and comfortable with who they are so lets practice creating that in our everyday lives.
