Description

Abstract

Engaging various sociological perspectives, concepts, and literature, this paper deals with my experiences with racism and racial prejudice ever since I moved to U.S. at the age of nine. The points that are addressed deal with my experience living in Russia as a member of the white majority without any exposure to other races or ethnicities, and my experiences with race and racialization at the schools and various social circles I entered in the U.S. Another point that is discussed in depth is my family’s struggle with welfare and the struggles that that system presents. The essay concludes by exploring my experience with racism in the workplace as well as in the real estate market. The essay finishes by reflecting back on the journey that my family took and where we have ended up because of it.
