    Good grief! What a mass of stereotypes! Obviously there are no answers to your questions.

    1. Young Asian child? From which country? Israel, Russia, Iraq, India, Japan, Sri Lanka, Laos, Kazakhstan, Saudi Arabia, Vietnam, China, Japan, Syria?????

    2. Do all or even most native Americans react the same? More stereotyping!!

    3. Aren't African-Americans in the main-stream? Their ancestors have been in the U.S. longer than those of many other Americans.

    Drop this class!!!

    I agree with Ms. Sue. What a hideous set of questions, probably matched by everything else going on in this class.

    Yes ... you should drop the class and demand your money back for this awful, AWFUL content.
