Lynne Deepe JUS494 Deb Henderson November 9, 2010 For the four years I attended my public high school, I was immersed in black culture since 85% of the student population was African American. Within in this time, I was able to broaden my horizons since the fundamental differences between white and minority culture were constantly pointed out to me. Most Caucasian Americans believe that since their race is the majority, their culture is not only the norm but the proper culture, while other cultures are generally thought to be odd. But, on the other side of this issue; many minority groups believe white culture to be weird yet advantaged. First, the interaction between white parents and their white children are often looked down upon by minorities in America. As one of my black class mates would say, “White kids don’t get enough hugs or whoopings.” From what I gathered, my class mate was trying to explain that white parents neglect their children emotionally but make up for their short comings by parenting in a lenient manner.

    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.
