I often wonder why I am in college I know that college will prepare me for the career I choose to pursue and make me that best that I can be in that field But there should be other things that I could be learning aside from calculating probabilities and writing clear and thorough essays Then I stumble and Ronald Takakis book A Different Mirror falls into my hands I read through the first chapter and when I look up to relax my eyes I see many students passing in front of me I realize that there are so many different races right in my own college Some of them probably just stepped off the boat and this is their first time in America others probably lived here their whole lives for their grandparents or parents migrated to the United States and continued to expand their family I was becoming painfully aware that I did not know much about any other culture other than my own I turn my attention back to my book and continue to read As I read each chapter I came to the conclusion that Takakis book may reflect on the lifelong lessons I was hoping to learn during my time in college Takakis book should be included in a college curriculum because the events discussed in his book reflect on what should be taught in college like to aim higher and to understand racism and discrimination I know I have learned that and it has changed my way of thinking things arent always as they seem and I should be more open minded and refrain from pre-judgment One of the most important things that should be taught in college is to have an open mind Without this you wouldnt consider reading Takakis book because it had a different representation But what would you be missing if you dont take a chance Think about looking at one thing we considered true
