I, Too, Am Harvard

“A photo campaign highlighting the faces and voices of black students at Harvard College. Our voices often go unheard on this campus, our experiences are devalued, our presence is questioned– this project is our way of speaking back, of claiming this campus, of standing up to say: We are here. This place is ours. We, TOO, are Harvard. The #itooamharvard photo campaign is inspired by I, Too, Am Harvard, a play based on interviews with members of the black community exploring and affirming our diverse experiences as black students at Harvard College. The original play premieres on Friday March 7th, 2014 at 7 PM in Lowell Lecture Hall on the campus of Harvard College.”

Jindal: Racism persists because minorities cling to their heritage | The Raw Story

Jindal accused minorities of placing “far too much emphasis on our ‘separateness,’ our heritage, ethnic background, skin color, etc. We live in the age of hyphenated Americans: Asian-Americans, Italian-Americans, African-Americans, Mexican-Americans, Cuban-Americans, Indian-Americans, and Native Americans, to name just a few.”

Community Village‘s insight:

Racism persists because of xenophobic racists.

 

In Jindal’s list of hyphenated Americans he forgot to mention European-Americans.

 

Jindal also listed Native Americans in his list of hyphenated Americans. The term “Native American” is not hyphenated.

 

There are four types of Americans:

1. First Nations Indigenous Amerindians
2. Colonizer-Americans
3. Immigrant-Americans
4. Migrant-Americans
