Voice of the Day: Ryan Herring

By the Web Editors 03-28-2014
"Too often are poor and oppressed people (especially people of color) regarded as threats here in America, while poor and oppressed people in other countries are viewed as victims. This type of perspective is dehumanizing to people here and to people abroad. To overlook the problems here and to focus on issues elsewhere sends the message that poor and oppressed American's problems are either insignificant, unimportant, or non urgent and at the same time it leads to the objectification of the "exotic other." - Ryan Herring Ryan Herring + Sign up to receive our quote of the day via e-mail
