This blog is meant to be a platform to see other perspectives. It is imperative that we not attack each other, but listen from a truly inquisitive perspective. If you're looking to speak before you think, judge without considering, or bait people to get your points across, this platform is not for you. We must keep an open mind if we expect to elicit change. Please comment with articulate analysis. One worded and inflammatory responses, or dismissal of anyone's opinions without explanation doesn't help anyone see your perspective.

This blog is a collection of other people’s opinions, which I’d like to offer as a starting point for discourse. These are not my opinions, but things that have provoked passionate conversations in their communities, and I present them to you to gain different perspectives on the current state of affairs.

This blog won't permit any form of bigotry. Bigoted language includes, but is not limited to, slurs based on race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, and disability. If you encounter Bigotry please consider the power of speaking to the author in a manner that may illuminate them before shaming them.

Creating a place where mistakes can be learned from is one of the driving forces behind this blog.
