Again, we are seeing an resurgence of the discussion on race and all that it entails. I wrote a post on that a couple years back that is still equally valid today: “Not Everything is Black and White.” I think it’s time to revisit that post.
Let me tell you about some experiences I have had.
First, I had a male coworker who would do just about anything to make people happy. It did not matter if it was a patron or fellow coworker. He always had the most cheery disposition and never failed to make a friend of anyone he met.

The guy, who was much older and very professionally dressed, touched my shoulder and suggested that we get to know each other better. Needless to say, this situation made me feel uncomfortable.
