Alright, to chime in a little, Im a mixed hispanic/ black female and I attend fordham university. Basically in my school, although one would like to believe that "race" no longer exist, it does. |
In my school there are your typical black jokes or hispanic jokes. I have had an occurrence where the teacher made a comment about blacks, and no one bothered to consider my feelings what so ever. When i went to report the comment, the staff said that there was very little they could do since he has been in a member of the staff for a long time.
I feel as though the other students ( white students) dont really go out of their way to make friends with me and are more likely to talk to another white person than me. Same can be said for hispanics i guess. In fordham its almost as if each race sticks to their own.
I do have plenty of friends, but most of them are african american or hispanics. Just try and be as friendly as you can, ignore the negative comments and everything will be fine.
Btw this is my own personal opinion and i am not saying that this can be your experience to
As a former Fordham student, I know exactly what you're talking about.
Fordham is the lions den of Conservative, entitled, obnoxious twerps.
I've seen what they do, and I'm sure it's even more disturbing for you, as you're there as a minority student.
I transferred out to Columbia after only one year at Fordham. I hated that college.
