False Identity and Racism

by Haroone Mutlek

My elevator speech, focuses on my main takeaways from SCLA102. My views have shifted as a minority growing up in America. Cathy Park Hong and mainly Frantz Fanon have affected my views on racism and issues in the United States and the world. By definition I myself have been a racist and an advocate for racism. But I continually ask myself what is behind racism? One minute is unfortunately not nearly enough for me to express my experiences and what I’ve learned. I’ve grown as a person over this semester and whilst reading and sharing my thoughts have found the same bigotry and hatred I disdained from racists in myself.
