5/25/11 Recognizing the Bubble At my high school we always said we live in a bubble, just a much smaller one than I do at the private university I attend now. Everyone had money, everyone was smart, and pretty much everyone was white. ..Since I was in a White school, it was hard for me to even recognize the influence that my race has on my identity… The first time I made my web I did not include race in it because I rarely think of it as part of my identity. I now see the privileges and power I have simply for being White. According to McIntosh and our other readings, race did not seem like a big part to me because my race is the majority…However, after learning more about race and society I understand that my whiteness is essential in my identity and plays an important role in my life.

What students are saying

    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.
