    @Pandasrules Excuse me? Breanna, not Ivey (her last name) is very much an example for our children at a time when we need that positive image gracing the news and social media platform. Sure, all kids can look up to her, but will they do so without some adult microaggressive lens. Save your 'racist' comment; it holds no merit here!

    @Natasha Gordon FYI, about 20 years ago, the local TV station send a crew to my workplace to make a piece about our work. We would be featured on the news! The CEO said some things, and then they went to the team, who did the actual programming. For some reason my colleagues didn't want to be interviewed. They came to me. Although I'd love my family & friends to see me on TV, I declined. I was just the rookie tester and I would take all the (publicity) glory. So, you see, it was a test for me, a test for THE CONTENT OF MY CHARACTER, and not my photogenic green eyes (MLK, in your face!) You are the embodiment of a generation of low expectations and high praise for trivialities. I pity you...

    I helped coordinate a local S.T.E.M. program for teens and enjoyed it immensely. A lot of it focused on speaking out and being comfortable doing so in groups as they worked on group projects. Part of that was in contributing to group project but also in relating a public presentation and discussing it's properties with people less aware of the concepts involved. Congratulations Ms. Ivey. Thank you for your contributions, as well as a bright future of contributions.

    Cancel Culture is coming after you! In the United States, we have an iron triangle between the Democratic party, and the media and corporations. The media and the democrats agree on virtually everything. Democrats have an agenda, the media pushes that agenda, then the media and the democrats pressure corporations to do their bidding in order to foster this agenda. "Unofficially" they're allowed to use threat in order to make clear what exactly they want to happen. This results in corporations pushing to cram down a particular point of view on you, and then, cancel you!

    @SCMP Reading I believe race issues have become too political - they've increased racial tensions in many ways, and undone some of the efforts and achievements of the civil rights movement of the 60's. I am not white person; and I have noticed a change in attitude. It was better pre - 2000 than now - and I blame certain media and certain politicians.

    According to that logic Einstein, Issac Newton, Leonardo da Vinci etc are beacons to white students. NO. Einstein, Newton, Da Vinci can be a beacon to all students.
