My question to the both of you is that what would you suggest that we as a culture can do at an elementary level to improve those issues involving racism, colorism, and overall equality in our everyday lives. I currently work in an office where I’m the only male and the only person of color in the workplace. I struggle daily with my security in my representation of being Black, gay, male. Although I am confident and proud in all of these aspects of myself, it’s a bit daunting carrying the proverbial torch. I know this may seem a bit ridiculous and perhaps a bit pompous to think that my life could carry the brevity of the representation of all these aspects of who I am but it’s something that I care about.
