St Thomas, VI
From an upbringing in Apartheid South Africa where I became involved in the Struggle (so much less ‘skin in the game’ than my Black peers). Finally settling in the US Virgin Islands across the Atlantic, and with a similar race ratio. Post disaster capitalism in full-swing after our big hurricanes of 1995 and 2017. It’s still a white man’s world. I’ve worked hard to address my implicit bias, but still carry the mantle of collective white responsibility for what remains an unjust society based on melanin.
