“Being African American I think that Wheelock talks about my race in terms of the slavery period and civil rights. But no one talks about how theres Queen and Kings in Africa. How there was and still is beauty in the mother land.”

Something that needs to be addressed is the different race issues. I feel that people on campus are so used to being around people who they get along with, that getting to know others of different races isn’t in the preference. There’s a lot to learn about other people of different races. and if...

Wheelock is a school based on diversity, but even though we have diversity on this campus, there is still a lot of white people on campus. So we are taught to the Majority, and we never really learn about the different cultures and racial identities on this campus.

 Race is brought up in every way possible here at Wheelock. Something is always a race issue. When you take the idea of race out, is there really an issue?

Well, to be honest, I feel Wheelock promotes racism. In a twisted way, I feel like discussing the importance of race makes racism more prominent. Americans are Americans, and showing differences between races had made me become more racist. I never saw a difference between races until I came here....

 My identity has been challenged here. I feel like more by the students than professors. In one of my classes, a student of color is very vocal and seems like she hates all white students, unless they think the same way as her. She has made me question if I’m a good person.
