English honours this semester mostly pertained to white privilege. The articles and content all showed a different side of the story and allowed me to gain insight on an everyday issue within our society. Between annotating, discussing, and responding to peers' comments I learned a lot.
My favourite article was "My President is Black" which showed the history of Preisndet Barack Obama, what experiences made him who he is, the challenges he faced along his political journey, and what sets him apart from other African Americans.
Overall, honours this year was great. I feel the topic could have diversified more, but by staying consistent I procured a deep understanding of how race affects your life as an American.
