Hi, I hate a lot of my classmates. Many of them say racist things, heterosexist things, and are very close-minded. Have others dealt with this? I am upset not only because of the things I hear but because I thought that people who want to be psychologists should be open-minded to all walks of life. I hate that I moved from home to this place where I hear this awful **** at least once a week. These are people who have passed a class on multicultural competency. Whenever I have tried to tell someone about it they would say things like "well some people just say racist things" or act like i'm making a big deal out of nothing. I have tried educating the worst offender but this backfired. The person no longer said racists comments around me because they absolutely avoided me and thus were able to say nothing to me. Sorry if this sounds more like a ranting rather than anything else. How have other people dealt with similar situations? Would it be appropriate for me to complain about this to the DT? How should I go about it? I am so hurt by all this I can't just keep quiet about it. I feel like I may be seen as a complainer because in the past I complained to the DT about a rude professor. I guess I should just be happy that I wont have to see them again until graduation or during internship interviews. Thanks for your time.
