If you need evidence on why a careful, and deliberate, approach is crucial to the process of change, consider that Martin Luther King, Jr., had a budget of $1,000,000 and a staff of 100 working furiously on the ground to maintain the bus boycotts.

That budget works out to the equivalent of almost $9,000,000 today. Imagine what might have happened on Wall Street if the Occupy Movement had that kind of capital.

In order to navigate the chasm of experience between me and any person of colour, I must be willing to learn. I believe in the order to keep the conversation going, we must make real connexions within our communities. We must pay attention to the problems, and not look past them, or try to pin the blame. »guest contributor Brette Weinkle, from ‘A Conversation Is a Code
