Summary to Brandi’s Response (Hector Bustos)
Brandi makes a clear distinction between Cadogan’s experiences in his hometown in Jamaica and his experiences while attending college in New Orleans. She argues that the United States prides itself in diversity, yet minorities are not necessarily treated the same way the United States prides itself in doing. Brandi comments on how she believed the essay was written a few years ago, but to her surprise, she found that this essay was only written two years ago. This discovery shows that prejudice and discrimination are still prevalent in the United States today. She argues that although the issues on police brutality have become a lot more known and has stirred up concerns, there is still more that needs to be done.
