It’s sad how uncomfortable this is

Wes,
Boston, MA.

I feel like the topic of race has become uncomfortable for many people because we assume the worst of people’s words. A discussion that includes the ethnicity of another person too commonly leads to an argument or someone accused of being a racist when no harm was intended or when a fact was stated that was not discrimination. Because of this, when assigned this project, I felt like whatever I said could lead to someone being offended or thinking I have some sort of racial bias, so I chose to not even mention my own race and focus on the problem that we have and the problems we have discussing race when almost always, people mean no hard and have no racist intentions.
