In the school, I noticed there was a divide amongst the races. Some students were punished more than others and some received more assistance than others. The teacher were bias to the students because of their race.
I had an experience in my German class that will forever have an impact on my life. My teach would as a girl and I to stand at the front of the class and have the boys in the class decide which one of us had bigger breasts. It was humiliating and embarrassing.
As I was working with the Southern Poverty Law Center, encouraging the public to be aware of the racial issues with the flag, I faced racism. Many of my peers as well as older individuals were disrespectful towards me because of trying to make a change.
