Yesterday, we began the work of closing a painful and dark chapter in American history. In this Roundtable Edition of I HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY, our team gets together 24 hours before the momentous occasion of the Presidential Inauguration that would install the most diverse leadership within an American administration that we have ever experienced. Lunna is in Puerto Rico, Xaulanda is in St. Croix (both U.S. territories), and Chris and I are on the U.S. mainland as we discuss this historical moment from several perspectives: Black Caribbean and Puerto Rican looking from the outside in, and a U.S. Latina and White male viewing it all from inside the wall. It turned out to be a very insightful conversation that will delight social anthropology geeks. One of the big takeaways: people of color know the difference between a White supremacist and a good person that happens to be White. So, there IS hope for one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
