I've been reading all of your conversations and find your comments on race very interesting to say the least. As a professional African-American women from the US, I am used to being stared at, gauked at and photographed in every country that I lived or visited...it's just apart of being Black. Your points on "white-privlidge" are universal...no matter what country you live this rule applies. But, you persevere as an indivudual and take the good with the bad. I have been fortunate over the years because I am an attractive "light-skin" African-American, but I a not disillusioned about the realism of racism and how persons of color are treated across the world.
I am just ending a project in Sydney, AUS and will be moving to Dubai in the next couple of weeks. I am fortunate to have a diverse group of friends...Asian, Indian, African...White, Black, Brown and Yellow. I would appreciate meeting like-minded indivuduals who embrace diverse cultures and the wonderful blessed life we have.
I haven't updated it in awhile, but if you are interested, plese leave me a message on my webpage...www.mogillespie.com
