Part of the way I’ve been able to move along as a man of color in America and Academia is partly not to give a damn how certain stories are perceived. The decision to share or not share is inherently yours, and I can appreciate the reasons. But the more we ask our other-race, other-background or other-culture colleagues to try, the more often we’ll become frustrated if the outcome isn’t what we expected.
Medium suggested this series for me and for that I’m grateful. I’m thankful to read your words and have the chance to join the conversation!
