The summer of 2011 was coming to a close. The University of California Berkeley summer program had come to an end, and the thought of leaving my friends was upsetting. I had developed deep and meaningful relationships with people from all over the world and I was reluctant to leave. I had even met a girl, who my sixth grade brain thought was the love of my life.

America is referred to as the melting pot of the world. It’s believed that there they accept every citizen and treat them as equal. But too often, people of color find themselves being treated like outsiders, being judged and racially profiled. From birth, colored people of America are taught that they need to fight twice as hard to earn anything that other cultures have; they also realize that they have racial barriers that keep them from achieving the most out of life.

Some chapters could have been moved around and placed in a different order with little effect to the story as a whole but there is one chapter that is critical based on where it is placed, “ The Drum”.
