That Got Weird: A True Story of Everyday Racism As a Somali Teacher

Students keep this educator engaged in her work. But colleagues? Different story.

By Sergio Rapu

Moallin talks about what it's like to deal with racism as a Somali-American teacher, not just from the students but from her colleagues as well. She shares her fears about how she comes across as a Black woman and how she wishes people would be more active listeners to better absorb what others are saying.
