Analysis/Reflection

This document is important because it reveals to the reader through initial reaction to the Committee on Racial and Ethnic Affairs' proposal of having a multicultural housing option that the people present at the meeting didn't see the importance of multicultural housing. The formation of this housing option is a huge deal because it provides a space for people of color to share and have discourse about different ethnicities.
