Equality is for all and needs participation from all

All this talk of equality today and equality for all…but yet I see Dr King’s message lost daily when I’m looked at as a white guy and automatically perceived with status. I was brought up to look beyond color and to listen and communicate accordingly but yet I see, I see just like a person of color a bias and I struggle and make that extra effort to show that I am only and individual, an individual trying to communicate with another individual but a lot of times it is daunting and sure dwindles that desire to just wanting to make a connection. I know I’m not the only person that feels that way, perhaps just the only person willing to admit it. I will continue to treat everyone like I would want to be treated but I will not treat anyone with special status just because they may have been considered unequal by others.
