Positive Race Experience

128 Words1 Page

My most positive experience with race was when one of my dearest friends who happens to be Chinese, and her family invited me to spend the Chinese New Year with them. Instead of her family treating me as if I didn 't belong in the celebration, they treated me like an honored guest. They took special care to share their cultural traditions with me. Although it was quite obvious I was an outsider because I am not Asian, I felt the entire experience to be enriching and worthwhile, one of the most interesting evenings of the year. Having friends of all different races has broadened my perspective on life. We all learn something from seeing people for who they are and not as a members of a specific race.
