Learning in the Shadow of Race and Class

22 Aug

This story is about how a young black girl from a working class family goes to attend a college where it is mostly rich white girls. This story made me think about our school and even myself. One question that i have is Does money really determine how you make friends? Like if your family is of the working class than are you not as good as someone from a rich family?

If you are of the working class do you want to be like the rich? Do you envy them? Or, Are you proud of who you are, where you come from and what you have?

If you are of the rich class do you think you are better than the working class? Are you above them? Or Are you grateful for what you have and want to give to others what you have an abundance of?
