“One day in lab, my lab partner, who had a very strong accent, asked me what part of Africa I was from. I found it ironic how she was the one with an accent yet I did not make an assumption about her ethnicity or about where she was from solely on that factor. However, she had no problem with assuming that because I was black that I was from Africa. I simply told her that I had never even been out of the country.”
