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.
