Choose one of the following scenarios which illustrate a variety of incidents that have occurred on a university campus.
Imagine that you are a residence hall counselor on campus, and the student described in the incident has come to you to ask for advice.
Anthony is a 20-year-old Chinese American student who recently transferred to your university from the community college in his hometown. He met with his advisor earlier today to discuss his schedule. As he was leaving the office, his advisor said, in a friendly and jovial manner, “The restaurant on First Street has the best wonton soup in town!”
The more Anthony thought about this, the more upset he has become.
In this assignment, you are asked to reflect on one of the presented scenarios. This should not just be writing down your first reaction or what you already know. Reflection involves critical thinking, which means rethinking your existing knowledge and previously held opinions in light of what we have learned about prejudice.
