American dream, tarnished
It was an OK day for me; I spent a fair bit of time talking with Claire about Universities, etc. In fourth lesson we all had a discussion about immigrants and racism. Claire confessed, “I suppose I am racist, really." I didn’t feel at all uneasy and tongue-tied as I normally always do.
Our General Studies lesson was excellent. Two visiting speakers came and gave a slide show called “The American Dream, Tarnished,” interspersed with readings from the letters of George Jackson, Catch 22 and One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest. I got totally absorbed by it.
The school mag’ came out today; it looks quite good.
