The Language and Memories of Race in Higher Education” by Chritopher Brown, shows that the color and race have been used as a categorizing factor adopted by the goal of treating individuals differently in accordance to their origins, language and race. People from different origins, races and language have been able to stay and associate together. However, because of the racism, this association has been difficult. Through racism, the marginalized communities have suffered discrimination which affecting the treatment which often receive from the general public. Acts of racism have been termed as shameless because despite the cries that the global world has moved past this inhuman practices, individuals living away from their lands of origins and homelands are still faced with different acts of racism.

According to Brown (2016), individuals should not separate between people by the skin color as a basis of measures of treating them in a particular way. John Griffin (1961) in his memoir “Black Like me”, recalls his experiences as a white man when he was forced to make a decision of undergoing a medical treatment in order to darken himself so that he could travel the Southern parts of the United States as a black man in order to avoid the inhuman acts of racism. Brown (2016), in the same spirit recalls his childhood memories when he was haunted by the word “nigger” which was used at referring to the black community who resided in the United States in his early days. He recalls the struggles of living as a black American and compares his way of life with that of the white men’s children.

Despite all this challenges just like Griffin, individuals should struggled in order to live and make their dreams come true. Brown still fights the acts of racism because it is evident that some individuals still suffer from these awful treatments. Therefore, there is need to continue in the fight against racism in order a huge goal which is completely destroy this racism and making it in the history.
