A Class on South Asian Liberation

I want to teach a class on South Asian liberation for my RC class. My main goal is to show more about myself so I can get closer with my Co-Counselors. I want to share information about our religions, histories, and liberation movements in South Asia. I will talk about the racism we experience here as well as how we are set up to be middle agents and against African-heritage people and Latinos/as. I will talk about how most USers only get information about South Asians that is filtered by whom they meet here (which is often limited by whom the United States lets in) or by media that make us seem exotic, dangerous, and spiritual in dehumanizing ways.
