Assumptions Topic I would assume they were foreign or hippies and leave. Especially if my kids were with me. Week 2 Part 2 Power relationships The commercial example is definitely one in which I can relate. I have been with my husband for over 11 years and I still have this relationship with my mother-in-law. At times, I think we are breaking ground and becoming closer and then she will make a statement that makes me realize we are still getting to know each other.

I don't want them to be scared of the world- they need to know that generosity and kindness breeds generosity and kindness, and that unfortunately hatred and fear spread fear and hatred. It's up to them what they spread around. TAKE A WALK
In my observation I focused on two categories, race and gender, which are both easily identifiable. For my observation I went to the local mall and just people watched as I myself was shopping. Some of my expected outcomes were true and some were not. One thing I expected to
