    Yes, the idea is noble, of course, just think that this sorts of initiatives divide us even further.

      It's always fascinating to me when I hear other white men (because let's be honest, that's always who it is) talking about celebrations of race as "divisive." Exactly what is it dividing? What does anyone lose by one group of people being celebrated? This site isn't called "BlacksWhoDesignBetterBecauseOfTheirSkinColor." It's not attributing any superior value, nor saying anything about anyone else. Don't jump so fast to defend against something that isn't an attack.

        Look, I'm sorry if my comment bothered you. It wasn't my intention. All I wanted to say is that the world doesn't need any more diversification at this point, cause we are all the same. That's all.

          except we're not. because some of us are still discriminated against and treated differently.

          It's not a matter of personal offense. I'm a white guy too, this doesn't directly bother me, it's just obviously a perspective that has not bothered to take into account other people's experiences for even one second. Listen when people are telling you that how you perceive them is not how they perceive themselves. It's a valuable skill for design, and even more important for life.
