I appreciate the candidness of the individuals who spoke of their race and culture. While White people described the lack of culture and identity, it made me feel pride in my own culture but deep within, White people have been negated 'culture' when so much focus has been on POC and their cultures. As a Latina, I did agree with the Latino conversations about race, skin color and not being from here nor there. It has helped me to consider my language when people ask me where I'm from and maybe I'll feel compelled to tell them how those questions imply 'alien' status and make me feel. All those conversations were deep, profound messages from as young as 10 year old black male having to express to their parents how good they are and that they will be ok, to older adults, like the Native grandfather feeling shame for his ancestry.
