From a fight, to an interview, to a discussion:Paper 10

Rae Hamilton's picture

Talking about class is wierd. Paper 10, was equally as odd. My paper focused less on the interviews I had and more on the workshop and the resulting conversation I had with one of my dorm mates afterwards. The whole was kind of awkward, but the more you talk about something, the less awkward it becomes. Which leads me to believe that maybe, sometimes, it is the awkward things that need to be talked about more than anything else.

Things are only awkward

Things are only awkward because they aren't talked about. I agree with you rae, and I do think that especially class needs to discussed with an emphasis on the relationship of class with race. It's awkward but we need to break the ice surrounding that topic.
