Racial discrimination and bias continue to be an issue in our community, and HRC’s latest campaign addressed this. The campaign, called “Race is Not the Case”, consisted of various activities including classroom visits, videos, and a quad event. Senior Jayson Yasukochi starred in a fun rap video Monday on Trident TV. On Tuesday, HRC members visited classrooms to talk about the campaign and pass out stickers. Another video on Wednesday encouraged students to challenge their perceptions based on race. The week-long event concluded with an activity in the quad; paper and shredders were available for people to write stereotypes they face, then shred the stereotypes. As far as creating lasting change on campus, senior Anna Constantino said that “our group is aware that we aren’t going to fix racism in one week with this campaign. The purpose of what we do is to get people talking, and to start a conversation.” In America’s current state, the importance of healthy conversation cannot be overstated.
