Turner 1 Christian Turner Professor Drugan ENC 1101 81640 10/16/23 Using Sources Summary This ted talk is called "What it's like to be the child of immigrants" spoken by Michael Rain. It explains his journey as a Ghanaian immigrant going through school and being judged. His parents came from Ghana, his mom working for a sewing company then saving to open her own business and, his dad got had a bachelors in accounting. Throughout the ted talk Michael explains his journey of being an immigrant and how everyone saw him differently based on what he eats, and how he sounded. Michael also includes how immigrants are just as human as anyone else and that no one should be judged just based off first glance. Paraphrase One of the main points made by Michael was that many successful people are immigrants and that immigrants are more important that many people think they are. Throughout the ted talk, Michael uses statistics about immigrants. For example, he included that the fastest growing immigrant demographic is African immigrants when most people believe it to be Latins, and Hispanics. Michael also includes that the most educated immigrant demographic is also African immigrants when most people assume it to be Asians. This shows that people mainly believe on what is going on around them instead of doing their own type of research. He uses Latins and Hispanics as an example because Mexico borders the US and all over the media, people are
Turner 2 trying to come into the US from there when, that's not even the main source of where immigrants are coming from. He uses Asians as an example because Asian people are usually stereotyped to be smart, but Africans have the highest education demographic. Quotations At the very end of the Ted talk, Michael incudes, "Engage us in conversation, discover who immigrants actually are and see us apart from characterizations, or limited media narratives, or even who we might appear to be we are melting pots of culture".
