Exploring Racial Issues
She's a student at Lafayette College, studying film and sociology.
Her: "I care a lot about social issues, and it really widens my scope of looking at the social world."
Me: "What's one social issue that you're passionate about?"
Her: "Right now there's a lot of talk about... There's a lot of racial talks, and it's definitely something I've been studying extensively."
Me: "How do we address racial issues and problems? What can we do?"
Her: (Laughs) "If we knew how to address the problem, we probably wouldn't have to study it. I think right now, especially with the presidential campaign, there's probably a portion of white Americans who are really angry and who think that they are facing a certain kind of backlash against them due to the Black Lives Matter movement. I think that there should be more interaction between people of different races and not just merely a policy type of integrating people who are of different races together into the same neighborhood because that has problems of its own. I think education is how you need to start, when you're really young, getting kids exposed to different types of people, not just your own kind.
