Please describe your race/ethnicity.


What is your age?
  • 25 to 34
Income Class
  • Middle Class
What does your ideal America look like?

A melting pot, were no one is one race anymore. Like we were told in school it would be. A mix of all races, beliefs, sexuality, and religions

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

Certain groups and people thinking their ethnicity, ideas or religion are better than others. And then taking that to the extreme and wanting/ forcing others to be more like them.

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 try on my small way to stand with, support and speak out with groups who are not being shown equality. In hopes that it will help others who may not feel a comfortable speaking out to show their support in their own way. And show the group being oppressed that there are people

What barriers exist in your life to increasing your involvement?

Fear, I would like to be more hands on at times, protest. But I am afraid of what might happen at the event.

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

I think they should lead by example, show their support for those being oppressed, speak out against those who are oppressing, go back to our founding fathers beliefs that thus is a country for all a safe place for those being oppressed by their own country.

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

It means that if we understand that our black brothers and sisters lives matter then we will see that all lives truly do matter. It is a sad statement that we have to convince others that a while raceses right to just live should be recognized forget civil right, the right to have a life.

Law and order exist for the purpose of establishing justice and when they fail in this purpose they become the dangerously structured dams that block the flow of social progress. Martin
