-- MICHELLE --
IT SHEDS LIGHT ON THE DISCRIMINATION PEOPLE ARE DEALING
WITH ON CAMPUS.
NEWS THREE'S MARY JO OLA HAS THAT STORY.
CLAIRE ZHUANG/UW MADISON STUDENT: 5441
race is really hard to talk about
UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN MADISON SENIOR CLAIRE ZHUANG
KNOWS IT'S HARD.
BUT THE CHINESE AMERICAN STUDENT FROM APPLETON AND
THE ASIAN AMERICAN STUDENT UNION...WANT TO TALK ABOUT
STARTING WITH A PHOTO CAMPAIGN.
CLAIRE ZHUANG/UW MADISON STUDENT 5406 and to show
that you know 5410 sometimes these things that are
being said really hurt people and affect their days
and affect how we see ourselves
I, TOO, AM UW MADISON.
IN IT STUDENTS ARE PHOTOGRAPHED HOLDING UP AN ASSUMPTION
OR QUESTION THEY RECEIVED.
WELCOME TO AMERICA!
DO YOU SPEAK ASIAN?
OTHERS OFFER A STATEMENT.
I DON'T NEED TO BE AN ATHLETE TO BE HERE AS A BLACK
MAN FROM BROOKLYN NEW YORK.
I AM NOT THE CURE TO YOUR YELLOW FEVER.
DON'T OBEJECTIFY ME.
CLAIRE ZHUANG/UW MADISON STUDENT
sometimes it's angering because it feels like people
aren't letting us define ourselves 44
DOCTOR RUTH LITOVSKY ON THE AD HOC DIVERSITY PLANNING
COMMITTEE SAYS THEY KNOW THERE'S AN ISSUE.
A BIG PART IN ADDRESSING IT IS TAKING ADVANTAGE OF
OPPORTUNITIES FOR DIFFICULT DISCUSSION.

conversations then people can see this is really about
everybody 45 this is not about individuals or small
groups it's about the entire campus 50
MORE SERIOUS TALKS ARE WHAT ZHUANG WANTS.
CLAIRE ZHUANG 5451 but we just want people to take
a moment or two to think about how theyre phraisng
THE AD HOC DIVERSITY PLANNING COMMITTEE WILL HOLD
