Just ask!

No Comments

A few days ago I was asked to speak to a group of graduate students taking a class on diversity. I have done this many times in the past, but I always find it very interesting to hear what questions the students have. The students are typically in their mid twenties and come from diverse backgrounds. I find that I probably learn as much from their questions as they do from my answers. I absolutely love speaking in informal settings like these classes offer.

Since we were little we have always been told you cannot ask that. I have a question in response to that, why not? I would much rather a person ask me a question no matter how absurd it might sound rather than staring, wondering, or making up their own conceived notions about me. My rule is very simple you can ask me anything, but I can ask you anything back. I also may choose to plead the fifth amendment from time to time.
