Just what it says on the tin: a photo montage of students holding up signs describing their reactions to everyday racism.

You’d think that racism only happens when people get racially profiled at Barneys because they happened to shop while black, but racism happens every single day, from the person who asks an Asian whether they can really see out of their squinted eyes to the person who asks the one Hispanic kid about what the “Latino perspective” is, Just simple, everyday things that escape people’s notice because it’s not so obvious.

Are we living in a post racial society? I think not.

Here’s a better link with some additional pictures.
