"One of the greatest myths that must be shattered is that education abroad is not for students of color. Students of color sometimes assume that racism abroad is far more overwhelming than racism at home or that there is no value-added in an international experience. There is an inclination, then, to remain at “home” where our understanding of the political and economic climate makes us feel more comfortable and secure. But, we must remember that definitions of “home” are transient in the first place, as our ancestry exists beyond US borders, and that, despite our own opinions, when studying abroad we are often treated as American first, and Black, Latino, Asian or Native American second."
