    It honestly depends on where you go. You could face racism in America just as easily as you encounter racism in another country. In my travels, I have never had any negative experiences due to my race, though that doesn’t guarantee you will not. I would recommend researching your country’s history and current events and reading up on any conflicts that might affect you negatively so you can prepare or change programs if necessary.
