Main issues could be discussed in a humanities class, or any class for that matter.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 6, 11:08 AM

There are instances of racism which do not even register as such they are so ingrained in behaviour and speech. This is problematic in a world where cultures are continuously coming together.
