Niel Leon, thank you for the baseball metaphor! I think the idea of a head start is a great visual. It doesn’t mean that we have zero talent, ambition or work ethic. It just means that the gifts we do have are given greater opportunity to grow.

And thank you for sharing your compassionate perspective as a white male! What do you think are the best ways we can reduce barriers?

My best to you! Heather
