Be sure to consider what you think underlies your thoughts and feelings (i.e., what experiences, messages, and interactions influence your reactions), and include this in your discussion where you can. Include at least one reference for a peer-reviewed publication within the past 10 years in your paper pertaining to processing your own issues related to diversity and multiculturalism, i.e., how did you respond to differences, microaggressions; stereotyping, gendering, etc. (10% of the grade) The citation should specifically relate to an aspect of your identity that impact your experience related to the video. It’s not enough to just list issues you face, but you must define it and discuss your process related to it.
