Jeswin Joshy Period 4 TED Talk Journal The TED talk that I had viewed was called A Saudi, an Indian and an Iranian walk into a Qatari bar … . This TED talk was about how people (mainly Americans) are still kind of scared of middle eastern or just “brown people” in general. The speaker, an Iranian- American named Maz Jobrani, is a stand-up comedian, so this TED talk was very comedic. I learned from this talk that people need to ease up a little bit when they see middle eastern people or just brown people in general. This TED talk had a more comedic side than informative side, but the general topic of the TED talk was racism. People are very scared of terrorists and most terrorists are from the middle east. The fear makes the people blind, so they see these people subconsciously as a threat. This means that they will be watching their every move without themselves

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
