It's a good cause.
White Stereotypes Redefined
Because I learned about the damage being unconsciously conditioned by stereotypes does when I moved to Washington, DC from the Connecticut suburbs. And I have a friend who is hurt by the racism still existent in this country. I think this is an amazing project!
I am participating because I believe it is extremely important for leaders around the U.S. to be involved.
I figured it was about time.
I'm participating because we all are unique and have been given gifts and qualties from God, all of which can be used for good. Our uniqueness and differences are to be celebrated and this project certainly helps do that!
I've worked against labels my whole life. I hate that when people see me they assume things. I think it's wonderful that this project is working to make people see beyond what is in front of their face and into the person that lies beneath. Sometimes the labels are right.
I believe we were put here to listen to each other's stories, and to help each other along in the parade of life. Applications for free hugs are always given serious attention.
