Tips for Multiethnic Conversations

By Sarah Shin
  1. Avoid language that generalizes (i.e. all _______ people are like______).
    Don’t assume that one story about a ____ person is true of everyone. Avoid assumptions about wealth/poverty.
  2. Opt for cultural learning versus “color-blindness”
  3. If you think it might be an offensive term, avoid it.
  4. Gently correct if you are offended – choose green-lining! 
  5. Give yourself grace to learn & make mistakes & correct.
