White CEO on white privilege
December 27, 2019
I was raised in a family of entrepreneurs in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. I couldn’t have asked for a better childhood, with loving parents who were deeply engaged in their kids’ lives and the local community.
I grew up privileged in every way—white, male, American, growing up in a nice part of town. I was comfortable.
Knowing that, my folks made sure to expose my sisters and I to uncomfortable situations.
