Not. Everyone. Sees. The. World. The. Same. Way. As. You.
Aaron Hawkins in 2002.
A reminder I needed, I think, after the blackface incident. I acknowledge that about myself. The performers acknowledged it as well. Maybe talking, saying our peace, and shaking hands at the end of things was the only way this could have played out satisfactorily on either side.
