Before coming to MSU I knew one side of racism from media. Whites discriminating Blacks. I even once experienced that when I passed by Akers Hall and some one shouted at me from his window black and African. I was like he is a racist.But whom am I in that aspect of life?Soon I discovered that I am almost like him in my behavior. I tend to associate more with people of my skin color hoping that the skin color makes us more compatible. I decided to try befriending whites. Later when I started to approach them I found out that my theory was wrong, you don’t get along with some one because of skin color. Instead I was spoiling my experience at MSU.

  • You’re so brave! Because you’re on the cusp of recogizing other spirits. Because of the damage that’s been done to ALL of us through the system of Racism…we’re all ill to the fact of love and what others can contribute. I think its brave of you to say hey I’m opening myself more to other spirits. Go Joyce!! Cause we all are effected by the systematic process of racism.
