1. I appreciate her exercise and I think its a smart way to teach people empathy for others. She's really tough, but difficult to talk about things required tough people to talk about them. With that being said, there were some things I didn't agree with.
2. I don't like the way she says "people of color have to fight that battle every day". Personally, it sounds as though she's saying that being black is a burden because it's something I have to fight for. While I recognize there might be situations in which I am treated unfairly, I never live my life with the ideology that I am burdened or at a disadvantage to anyone else for any reason. That's an unacceptable way to live and it won't get me anywhere.
3. When she says the experiment can end or continue individually, I feel like she employs the use of guilt on those white kids ("some have to worry about skin color, others don't") as a reason for them to "make a choice". Personally I'd rather someone do right by me because it's the right thing to do and not because they feel guilty or feel bad for me. I don't need a pity party.
4. I didn't appreciate her asking the girl that walked out to apologize to the black kids because of a freedom she was able to use. I would never ask someone to feel bad for having a privilege that I don't have and I would have preferred that the teacher explained to the young lady that instead of apologizing for her freedoms, she should work to ensure that everyone has equal freedoms. But don't beat me over the head, I get why the teacher did what she did, I just don't think people should have to apologize for their freedoms on account of me being black.''
This lady is a good teacher though, she needs to come to my school.
