This panel discussion particularly intrigued me and a couple of my friends, as OU international students had the opportunity to share their experiences regarding racial bias and stigma in America. Some of the students really got me thinking what racial issues I may have when I study abroad. Being an African American in America comes with its struggles, but what about across the globe? I’m not particularly sure what to expect. I know there will always be racism in all parts of the world, but how will I handle it when studying abroad?
