“I Don’t See _____, I See People” Or The Dangers of Denying Diversity

April 17, 2014


(Warning: I am delving into a discussion of diversity, politics, anti-semetism, and more. I do so with only the intent of exploring my complicated feelings on the subject, in light of a lot of activities going on lately in the world.

I Won’t Forget: Spirit Day, Anti-Bullying and the Power of Hope
