Tegan Ward SOCI 1501W November 14, 2016 Readers Response 9 Question: How can America become whole? Answer: Until everyone sets aside their pride and sense of power over others because of the pigment of their skin we will always have a divided nation no matter how many people claim we are one nation indivisible. Question: How accurately do your race experience match those listed in the reading? Answer: The one that stuck out to me the most was 7 When I am told about our nations heritage, I am shown that people of my color made it what it is. Although I can agree with that statement, I hate that I can. In history the white race was barbaric to the Native Americans, to blacks, to Asians, and to Hispanics. I am proud to be where I am in the world, but disgusted at the path our race took to get here. Question: How do you map who you are? Answer: I found that the diversity wheel presented in the reading was quite useful in the sense that each of the aspects on it are involved in my selfidentity. The only thing lacking from it is personality which I believe is one of the biggest influences in discovering who you are. Physical provide labels but personality shows character and that is what should be a driving force in self identity.
