Monica, I love your post. The quote you used by Pilot Viruet is so powerful and important. Because of the color of ones skin they come out of the womb being guilty of something or so society says. For someone it is truly a blessing that they die with out having a bullet as the cause of their death. Also, I loved the quote that you used from our peer Chelsea that talked about how her friend had/has to dress a certain way. Its so sad that is the ‘truth’ that so many live through. However, that extends beyond race. For example if one goes to an interview dressed like they are about to go to the gym they will not be taken seriously even if they are quite possibly the best person for the job.
