Some see me as an Oppressor

I am dedicated to Equality for all persons and the values that make up Diversity. As I journey through my career as an Equal Opportunity Adviser and an Equal Employment Opportunity Specialist and Program Analyst, my hardest realization has been that some people will always see me as an oppressor… knowing nothing about my background, education, lifestyle, family or friends…but simply based on the color of my skin.

    Adrian, now you know how it feels to be judged by the color of your skin. It’s never comfortable or pleasant. It’s what minorities live with every day of their lives, in nearly every environment outside of their homes. Sobering, isn’t it?
