About the Site

Race is one of the most divisive concepts today.  I just wanted to make a site to help mend the division. 

Through my own personal experiences and observations, I hope people can see the world through my eyes and develop a better understanding of how race impacts us in our everyday lives.

Purpose of the Site
The content on this site is geared towards helping people from many backgrounds understand the more hidden forms of racism, and clarify some of the more complex concepts of racism.

Just come here with an open mind, expect a challenge to your thinking. I will as well.

Maybe somewhere in between we could meet and work something out.

Method to Achieving Racial Understanding
