Check your privilege.

Being called a terrorist as a kid wasn't uncommon. Back then I would turn it into a joke so that I wouldn't have to feel anything more. But after a racial encounter in New York, I've started to recognize the privileges I have, and the ones I definitely don't have.

More fuel to the fire.

Finding the right way to communicate the message came from all types of inspiration. From seeing the celebration and vilification of beards, to an impactful moment in Family Guy.
