The deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson and of Eric Garner in Staten Island snapped our attention back to the way we look at race. And in many of us questions surface: are we still at the point where race matters? Does the color of your skin still influence how far you get and what chances you have? If we are honest, we have to admit that it often does. Even more than 50 years after the Civil Rights Act in the U.S., we are still not treated equally. Even so, today we have the chance to start new conversations about our experiences of discrimination or the biases we’ve found in ourselves — a painful but necessary journey.
