Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would definitely recommend this class. It was a great insight into the different layers of the multicultural society that the United States offers. The word indeed has also become more multicultural with the internet and the easy access to information and communication. Culture can be complicated and not only connected to race but rather the common things that unite a certain group of people and it is essential especially in my chosen field as a counselor to have a great awareness of the different cultural issues at hand. We had great discussions, the class itself was very multicultural and at times discussions were heated but we managed to love one another.
The highlights were discussions about race and discrimination against African American people in the United States. White supremacy and white privilege was discussed and as a white person I came to a greater awareness of how white privilege is ingrained in so many of us who are born white and never have to think about the color of our skin. I am someone who comes from Iceland though so I did not grow up in the United States so all the discussion was really helpful for me.

Advice for students:
Advice would be to enter the course with an open mind, with intention to learn about other people, their lives and their culture. Also it is essential to read the textbooks and take in the reading material so you are not just building all your assumptions on "how you feel" but rather on social studies and findings out there and then as a mix of your own you have more to give to the class.
