Misunderstanding Minority

From Christian Hosam ’15:

Given the recent racially charged incidents that have occurred on campus and general feelings of discontent with the university’s attitudes toward the Student of Color community, it is more important than ever that we stand together. In and outside of Wesleyan, however, there is a tendency to refer to people of color in exceedingly narrow terms, particularly as African Americans and, to a lesser extent, Latino/a American. But why? Why do Asian-Americans, Native Americans, mixed-raced persons, or anyone who doesn’t fall into the category of Black/Latino often feel as though they are not included in our campus (and societal) conception of Student of Color, particularly when the commonalities that we share are certainly larger than our differences. “Misunderstanding Minority” will explore what keeps us disunited as students of color and how we can come together to utilize our shared experiences to enact effective change.
