Take a few moments and read the responses to our survey. We will be sharing each persons response separately so that everyone is able to digest the information. What you will see is that we are more similar in thought than you may have realized! Thank you in advance for reading, sharing and being a part of the conversation.
Please describe your race/ethnicity.


What is your age?
  • 35 to 44
Income Class
  • Middle Class
What does your ideal America look like?

5 words, Independence, Opportunity, Innovation, Diversity, Generosity. Independence (not necessarily in the order listed)

What do you feel is holding us back from reaching your ideal America?

ourselves – we don’t want to work with each other, instead we want to fight with each other instead of working together.

Is equality a core value in your life?
  • Yes
If yes to the question above, what action steps do you take or have you taken to ensure equality in the U.S. and why?

I work in an environment where I provide care to many different races, sexes, etc. For me I treat all staff and patients failry. I creat an inclusive culture for my patients. I ensure that I provide them with the same care and same education. As a society I think we need to take steps back and look at what our ancestors and forefathers worked so hard for and how they would feel if they were alive to see “races” fighting amongst each other when they worked hard for equality and inclusion.

What barriers exist in your life to increasing your involvement?

Time, money

What role do you think the government should play in race relations?

A large role

When you hear black lives matter, what does that mean to you?

I started seeing the hashtage surge when there was a new case of a police killing of a black person that was seen as unjust. However, the more I have researched the phrase “black lives matter” I realize it a movement in which we are working for a world where black lives are no longer systematically and intentionally targated for demise.

A Rose Grew From The Concrete Survey


Embrace a diversity of ideas. Embrace the fact that you can disagree with people and not be disagreeable. Embrace the fact that you can find common ground – if you disagree on nine out of 10 things, but can find common ground on that 10th, maybe you can make progress. If you can find common ground, you can accomplish great things.

– David Boies
