So, this amazing piece was written by one of my Annenberg classmates and couldn’t be more spot on, especially in an environment like USC (where only 5% of the students and only 4 out of the 36 in my program are black — including myself). This reminds me that code switching is a real thing and though we all tend to do it as POC, it can still be problematic for how we interact with each other within our own culture.
