I came into this class with very low expectations. I very much expected to simply hear fifteen weeks of the message “Don’t be racist” in as many variants as are humanly possible. Although it still isn’t my favorite class, I have been pleasantly surprised. My thinking on “races” has evolved, which is legitimately unexpected. I don’t think I was particularly racist to begin with, but this class really helped me put my thoughts on the matter more coherently. Particularly, the information on “concordance” has been enlightening (Diamond, J., 2016, para.9).
