Response to David Pham’s blog

November 29, 2007

I appreciate what David says in his identification with Fernandez’ article. It really helps me to get a different view. I was critiquing the article based on its biblical content, but David discusses the issue of racism in the article. He reminds us that discrimination based on color can be extremely painful not just for Filipinos but for all ethnicities. It’s really useful to me to be reminded that racism exists and negatively impacts people’s identities, especially since as a white American racism does not affect my everyday life. Thanks, David, for your insights and for sharing your story with us.
