bbish520 8 / 30 Dec 28, 2010 #1Please help!! I'm really not a good essay writter so I am seeking help to better my essay. So here it goes:Stanford students are widely known to possess a sense of intellectual vitality. Tell us about an idea or an experience you have had that you find intellectually engaging.As I was walking up the stairs I notice three guys standing by the door to the movies theater. Because at the time Forbidden Kingdom - a kung fu movie starring Jet Li and Jackie Chan - was premiering, many people have just come out of seeing it. As I walk passed the three guys I suddenly hear them making fun of the Chinese language. I was horrified. I couldn't believe what I just heard. I turn back my head to see if I heard right and indeed I have; I saw them laughing to each other as if they had make a joke about something. I have accepted that I may be different to them because of my physical appearance considering that I live in Puerto Rico but still there was no need for it, no need for them to make fun of my language. I am from another culture and I don't see or hear myself making fun of their language.I really believe in the saying: "Don't judge a book by its cover." Because physical appearance isn't important then it shouldn't matter if one is white, black, etc. Race is just the background where the person comes from; it doesn't really tell us how the person is.If here and now people are behaving this way - treating others differently because of their race - then what are we telling our next generation through these acts. How can we hope for our next generation to get along no matter the race or ethics that they may have?
