Another thing that Johnson's article McIntosh's article and another article by Salim Muwakkil all had was when it talked about black people trying to find jobs and although they may be more qualified then the white applicant the white applicant gets the job over the black applicant and this goes for promotions at work as well. I never really thought about that until it was brought up in class with Jose having to Americanize his name and getting called back for interviews when he became Joe. It's sad that it's 2014 and black people are still being treated like this. These articles really made me realize that yes white skin is fair skin.

My name is Alyssa Downing! This summer I worked alot at my towns after school programs summer camp I was in the first grade room and I loved it. I had weekends off so that was a plus! I went to some concerts, Luke Bryan, Beyonce and JZ and Drake! I visited the Cape and Rhode Island a lot and went to Myrtle beach where I went para-sailing for the first time which was a lot of fun!
I am taking this class because I am an early childhood education major and it is needed to get into the program (I WISH THIS WAS ONE OF THE ONLY REQUIREMENT to get in the program!) I'm really excited for this class and can't wait to start going to the schools!
