I just wanted to take a second to talk about this.

You know those games you play on the first day of school to get to know the people in your class? You have to go around and find a person to sign their name on one of the spaces that apply to them, but heres the catch: You can only use their name once.

This is not a picture I got off the internet, this is my actual paper we had to do in chemistry today. 

I was disgusted when I got this paper and the first thing I saw was “African-american and White.”

For starters, I can look at someone and easily tell that. I’m not getting to know my classmates by them telling me what race they are. Especially considering half the class was neither white nor black. Not to mention, I am mixed race myself so I couldn’t sign my name for either. 

Now beyond the race; let’s talk about these questions.

"Knows somebody who has died from violence."
“Has a family member in jail.”
“Has been bullied.”

Who in their right mind thought it was a good idea for students to be forced to tell people whether or not they have a family member in jail, or have been bullied? Let’s remember; you can only sign a persons name once. So although Sarah has pretty blue eyes, all you see is that she’s gotten in a fight. If you don’t know Sarah, the first thing you’re going to assume is that she’s a troublesome kid. Which is not at all the case.

I knew for a fact at least 5 kids in that room (I’m sure there was more but I only knew so many people) that have been bullied before. Who is going to openly admit that? So that everyone else will know them as that kid who’s been bullied? Or that kid who has a family member is jail? Or even just that “African american” kid? 

What happened to the fun questions like “knows how to play an instrument” “can sing the alphabet backwards” all that good stuff?
