North American people come from many different parts of the world. They have many backgrounds, religions, stories, and colours. However, most of the people we see the most are one colour: white. Especially in politics and entertainment, advertising and in the upper parts of the business world. Almost all white, and usually male. Last night’s Gold Globe awards were an interesting change. Many of the winners and presenters were not white, and most of them had something to say about that. If you have the time and interest, watch and listen to some of the speeches and comments.
