Read “You Do Not Belong Here” (Links to an external site.) by Jaquira Diaz. Consider the following questions and write a 200-250 word response. You may focus on just one or two questions, but make sure your response is thoughtful and gives your opinion/insight rather than just a summary of the story.
1. Do you have a place like El Caserio? In what way? How would you feel if you were told you didn’t belong there?
2. What does Diaz mean by “daily microaggressions?” Have you ever experienced or witnessed this?
3. What is colorism? Is it present in your culture?
4. What does the author mean by erasure? Do you agree?
