This story was shared by an NPS student. 

Image ID: the background of image 1 is orange (upper one-third) and purple (lower two-thirds), with a large white square with rounded corners overlaying and within that square, this text in purple: “In one of my classes we are learning about Asia and one of my white teachers wrote on the board Rice=Asia Food. First of all she used incorrect grammar and second that is extremely racist! People all over the world eat rice! And on a different day we were making timelines for ancient China and she made the timeline on “Chinese Dragons” (it was obviously made by a white person). She is so oblivious of her actions and needs to be educated.”

Image 2 has the same orange/purple split background, with the white text “Story Themes” running up the lower left side and two columns of white boxes (four per column) displaying our eight story themes. Here, the themes Educational Challenges, Lack of Understanding, and Race & Identity are emphasized with bright/bold colors and the themes Whiteness, Emotional Response, The Future, Hurt & Exclusion, and Actions & Strategies deemphasized with paler colors.
