Transcript of I'm Not Racist, Am I?

Asian Girl
I hope that...
People
recognize their biases
that inevitably and unfortunately come with the color of their skin.

I fear that...
there will be
a greater divide
among "colored" and "white" due to defensive human nature
What do you hope & fear for our community?
Mixed Student
I hope that...
This will shed light on the things
we need to be talking about but aren't
. I hear people misuse the word 'racist' all of the time.

I fear that...
People won't focus enough on the deep issues behind the film.
What do you hope & fear for our community?
Someone
I hope that...
There is increased awareness of the general problem. Some tend to dismiss
racism as a problem for 'other people'
.
What do you hope & fear for our community?
White Senior Girl
I hope that...
White people will
take responsibility
since they have the unfair advantage in society.

I fear that...
This will become a classic UPrep thing where
no one actually views it as important
.
What do you hope & fear for our community?
I'm Not Racist, Am I?
What are your hopes and fears for U Prep now that we've watched this movie?
African-American
Sophomore
I hope that...
People really take into account what they learn. That people
don't stay silent
.

I fear that...
People don't respond openly, or
don't grow
after seeing this.

What do you hope & fear for our community?
African-American
student
I hope that...
Students become cognizant of how they address race.

I fear that...
Students at U-Prep will not take the message in the film seriously, and instead of learning from it just denying what the film has said. The most bold example being the "all whites are racist" statement. I heard a lot more white students
denying the statement rather than confronting and analyzing it
.
Anonymous
I hope that...
We can be able to always be sensitive of our race and the race of others, and
still be one community

I fear that...
The negative stigma of community conversations will make people feel that
this conversation is forced on them
, and therefore will not want to contribute or get anything out of it.
What do you hope & fear for our community?
Human
I hope that...
people will think about the
weight of their words
before they say them.

I fear that...
Nothing will happen and
no one will care
enough to do anything.
What do you hope & fear for our community?
Concerned Junior Girl
I hope that...
The community keeps having these difficult discussions, they're awkward and weird,
but they're so important.

I fear that...
This all becomes a
joke
...
What do you hope & fear for our community?
Cautious
I hope that...
People will be more willing to talk about these issues in a respectful manner,
that meaningful dialogue will lead to meaningful changes
, and that we all may respect each other as humans.

I fear that...
Instead of meaningful dialogue, we may get an echo-chamber, where opposing opinions are drowned out. All sides of any debate must remember that while you have the right to an opinion, your opposition also has the right to an opinion.
Instead of gagging an opposing voice, bring your voice up.
And while you may disagree, you are being closed-minded if you don't at least think about what the other side is saying.
White Student
I hope that...
We see students asking each other difficult questions, like "Am I a racist? Are you a racist?
If so, what should we do about it?".

I fear that...
Students will ignore or forget the valuable entrance into a valuable conversation that we were offered, and that students will not develop their understandings of race and racism, both at U Prep and beyond, but will instead
be content with asking no questions
.

Senior Girl
I hope that...
We can have more of those real, honest conversations like in the movie as opposed to the kind where we keep
circling safely around the same issues
, without delving deeper and becoming at least a little bit uncomfortable.

I fear that...
Some people have already forgotten about the movie and after participating in a thoughtful conversation for that one hour, they
went back to their offensive jokes and stereotypes
. Also, that some people wouldn't have the same reactions as those in the videos, who were able to move past their differences after having honest and mature discussions about their beliefs and prejudices.
Claire Mao
I hope that...
This movie helps us understand even more why it's so important to discuss institutional racism rather than individual racism, since the idea of all white people being racist can make people extremely
uncomfortable, defensive, and emotional
. I think the next step should be to pick up where the movie left off and think of
how to start addressing it
.
