I mention that fact last because it's the least relevant reason as to how and why I became an entrepreneur and how I run my business.

We Can All Make a Difference

I am no longer feeling quite so helpless and think that there are some things I can do, at least in my own circles at work and home. I can change my own behaviour and take ownership of my own so called unconscious bias and make sure that this is not interfering with my decisions or stopping me from realising that most of the difference that I fear or perceive in others turns out to be an illusion once I allow myself to work with and get to know them.

Gail Dines

The media is on fire with questions about whether Nicki Minaj went "too far" with the artwork for her next single, Anaconda... Amazingly, what nobody is discussing is the wider issues of the historical roots, cultural resonance and contemporary implications of a mass circulated image that arguably reduces black women to just "big butts" and little more.

It has long been known that positive interaction with members of other groups (ethnic, religious and so on) promotes more positive attitudes to others. Why, then, is it sometimes claimed that diversity poses a challenge to modern society, makes people withdraw from interaction, makes us less trusting of one another?

Claudia Tomlinson | Posted 11.06.2013 | UK Politics
Claudia Tomlinson

Thatcher's stance in 1978 was to condone, and empathise with public fears around black immigration, warning that people would feel 'swamped', the British character would be lost, and that the white British public would be hostile to those coming in from the Commonwealth and Pakistan.

A six-year-old boy on his first visit to the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC, could not muster the courage to look at the face of the giant-sized statue of the man who abolished slavery in America.
