"Statistically there are more 'creatures' on TV than asian-americans"
"You regularly get to eat out at a restaurant other than fast food. move ahead three spaces" (Example of privilege)
"An asian man wearing a business suit walks into an office building and a security guard asks which floor he is delivering food to"
These sparked A LOT of interesting anecdotes, opinions and questions such as are restaurants really more of a privilege than home cooking? Could the lack of Asian representation of TV simply be a cultural thing?
Needless to say this class is making me feel very much like a white, privileged female which I am happy/unhappy to say I am grateful for. I am also grateful that I have access to such amazing food like...
Lunch that was grabbed on my way to class
I got a hummus sandwich on wheatberry bread with a bunch of veggies and a vanilla soy milk. I also grabbed an apple and banana but they have yet to be eaten.
And a snack of baby carrots, almond butter and triscuts.
And a great dinner of barley (which seems to be all the rage!), apples and butter beans stuffed in a baked acorn squash with some feta.
I now understand the barley obsession... it IS just like super chewy oats!
All sprinkled in cinnamon
I am also very grateful for the V-Day package is got from PerMa today!
Dried fruit (enabler), gum (enabler again), dry roasted almonds, and THREE dark chocolate bars! Some of which will be tried for dessert! Confession, I have three dark chocolate bars currently going, this is turning into a nut butter type situation...
I also got a fun gadget from amazon today which I will share with you over breakfast.
Finally getting caught up on Glee!
