Read: Purim, Not Prejudice

Remember, another person’s culture is not your costume!


“Treat those who share the culture and legacy of that hero with respect long before you don a representation. Because, having Cliff-Notes-knowledge of anyone or anything that represents a culture or ethnicity has never been good enough. You need to walk in a way that moves towards equity.”
