I was upset one day and my roommate asked what was wrong and I told her I was pissed that guys at this school never seemed to acknowledge my presence in class or anywhere about how no one cared to make connections with me as a person and how people at this school talked at me and not too me. She told me “I was just being oversensitive and ridiculous for thinking my race has something to do with that.” She doesn’t get it. My race will always have something to do with the way people interact with me.
