I am a Puerto Rican person of color with African roots. I am also a white male. Both descriptions are technically accurate, but fail to illustrate the nuances of my competing identities.

After the death of George Floyd, I felt a calling and an obligation – to both my ancestries- to attempt to bridge gaps of misconception.
