In Katie’s response to the readings, she expressed the same feelings as I did when I read “Black and Blue” by Garnette Cadogan. She points out the comparison of Cadogan’s life in Jamaica versus the life he lives in America. She does a good job summarizing and comparing the most important parts of the essay, which was his experiences in both Jamaica and United States. She also added a significant quote which I also found interesting because it is Cadogan expressing that in Jamaica, he feels like himself and he feels that he can walk peacefully without a second thought in his head. Our responses are similar because we both highlight that it is wrong for people to be judged based on their race.
