Kai's Poem

The poem/video we watched by Kai Davis brought up many good points on racial views. She spoke very negative of how school is structured and why its structured that way. Her views of how black people are viewed brought up history's view on blacks. What she said that struck me the most was "does having a 4.0 mean I'm 4 shades lighter?" People viewed her as "white" because of her grades. The way she worded it was the part that really got to me, how people sterotype others, or how people sterotype themselves. I mainly liked the poem because she didn't sensor anything she was saying and thats how things should be.
