I have learned early on that I might not have access to the same jobs and opportunities as others or that I will probably spend more time at an airport because for some people my name is associated with terrorism. I found myself wondering; will I be able to reach my full potential when I seem to be limited by my name or the color of my skin?  I like to believe that I will but I am probably going to have to work harder and that is precisely the problem. Why would I need to work harder? How is this fair? And how can people deny the existence of systemic racism when it is clear that they are people who are privileged and others marginalized?  By not addressing systemic racism we are accepting that we live in a society that was rigged to benefits some people at the expense of others. How long will this last before we collectively decide to play it fair?
