We went to the school that we were going to be mentoring at for the first time. The principal gave a long winded speech covering these basic topics: 1)Emory back in the day was full of racist white people 2)There are dumb white people- it takes all of us to make the best of us. 3)You should follow your dreams. 4)You should go to job fairs totally unrelated to what your career path is. 5)You should remember that some people don't know who Marcus Garvey is. 6)You should learn stuff while mentoring. 7)He feels that being a school principal is like a ministry of service.

Hopefully we'll not have to endure any more hour long speeches. I nearly passed out from hunger.
