Thanks for sharing your reflections from abroad!

Two questions that came up while reading your essay:

1. Why do Americans feel obligated to emphasize their skin color? As you have mentioned correctly your “understanding” of the world has a lot to do with your upbringing but you could be brown, not white, raised in a middle class Brazilian family and still have the same world views.

2. The anti-vaxxer girl. You say it as if it can precisely describe a person. Please read RFK’s new book. There is absolutely nothing wrong to being opposed to the corrupt world of vaccinations and big pharma working together with the government to impose their financial will.
