Description
As I reflected upon my first nine weeks here at UCSD, I realized I never felt discriminated against as an Asian. I figured it was perhaps because the Asian population is the majority at this school. However after talking to my Hispanic roommate, she felt the same exact thing. Among the group of friends I made from my time here, we range from Middle Eastern to Asian to Caucasian. It may be that Sixth College really is its own little camp or that I've only been here for three months, but I have yet to experience or witness discrimination on this campus.
The readings on discrimination I have read in my Culture Art and Technology course.

For the Culture, Art, and Technology (CAT) 1: Migration Narratives in the Sixth College writing program taught by Amanda Solomon in the Fall of 2016, students were asked to think about how they view the current campus climate and respond to the fourth chapter of Angela Kong's dissertation, "Re-examining Diversity Policy at University of California, San Diego: The Racial Politics of Asian Americans" Thesis (Ph. D.)--University of California, San Diego, 2014.
