Equality, Diversity, and Equity Are Not the Same Thing.
Michael Parker West

Love this post, Pal.

But it also frightens me. Here’s why: Given that white men hold damn near all of the meaningful power in our community — particularly in states like ours that actively create conditions that disenfranchise diverse communities — I don’t know if equity is ever going to happen.

Heck, those same white men are screaming that they need equality because they are the ones being disenfranchised by society.

Do you have hope for change? I know I’m a pessimist by nature — but isn’t there reason for genuine pessimism given the circumstances in our country?

Rock on,
