I appreciate you taking the time to read the article, understanding where its coming from, and not rushing to judgement. I understand why this article frustrates so many people, they feel misrepresented. However, as stated many times earlier, it is my personal experience and not a broader social study. However, I do believe — using one wrong to justify another will not fix the problem. I remember watching Jackie Chan being asked how he saw himself, being a Leading Asian man in Hollywood, and he eloquently answered, “I wish to be seen as a human being…”. You’re not just your colour of skin, and I am not just my colour of skin. These are just barriers we built to give credence to our identifiers, nothing more. Thank you for writing in, have a wonderful day. Kind Regards.
