RACE AND YOUR COMMUNITY 2 Race and Your Community The communities I live in are a mixed race. We have not just one races but a number of races. We all interact with each other in some type of way. You might find them out golfing together or you will find them out with their families enjoying one of the park areas in my community. I have meet and become friends with a few families in my community, I know an Asian couple by the name of Mr. and Mrs. Wong, who are an older couple. I also know John and Lucy who are my neighbors and they are Native American, and then we have Gregory and Melissa, who are Afro American same as I am. In our community we have found that the people here are not judgmental and they do not intrude on one’s privacy. The leaders in our community look upon us to be of equal value in order for us to have a productive community. Some people might think that we have to deal with a lot of different issues within our community, and we do have them, but we also have a board of members that consist of every race that is present in my community. On the board you have 10 members who are of black, white, and Hispanic race. The only race who I think do not have a fair voice are, the Asian American, they do not have someone to speak out for them, but they are active and strong members of our community. The texts that I used did not share much about the Afro Americans like me but they have taught us a great deal about the Asian and Hispanic Americans with in my community. My text has taught me how to respect each race a lot better and understand their ways and heritage more than I ever have before.
