Thinking about the everyday impact of race/ethnicity. Let’s begin with the profound statement made by writer Zora Neale Hurston as she said “I am not tragically Black!’ Think about the ways the ideas of race and ethnicity have constructed you and how the world sees you (please write this as Muslim female who currently living in the us , like how the ways and the ideas of race and ethnicity have constructed me as Muslim person specifically female and how the world sees me a s Muslim female in general ( when I say in general , I mean do not write about what the news usually show). Oh, and you can also write it as an Arab person and Muslim. Second, Confront these ideas! In the way similar to Leslie Silko’s confrontation of the US border patrol. Demand that society live up to aspirational notions of justice and fairness (recall the discussion of Angela Davis and her critique of the prison-industrial complex), and consider the ways that those who would let their presumptions about race/ethnicity guide their actions, can be constrained. Take some time to consider the everyday impact of racial and/or ethnic constructions on your life.
