Description
In this poem, I explain how I feel about the campus climate here in UCSD, and how I feel about people expressing themselves in ways that is not morally correct for our campus. I attempt to demonstrate understanding, as well as a solution to this predicament that occurred on campus.
I was motivated to do this artwork because I wanted to be able to demonstrate what I see is happening on campus and be able to cultivate my ideas into a way that would bring up issues so that no one would get offended. The chalk writings on campus really inspired me for this piece because I can truly express what I feel about the political statements students are leaving on campus, but also leave a powerful message in the end so that people can know that things will get better.

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.
