In this UC piece Rodney Reynolds describes the paranoia he feels as a black man living in America.
"It doesn’t matter that I’ve obtained both a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree. And it doesn’t matter that I got both from an Ivy League institution. It doesn’t matter that I’m a minister and an artist who has dedicated my existence not to violence or physical harm, but to loving my neighbors, spreading peace and speaking life. My resume doesn’t count, because it’s not written on my forehead. I am simply a problem.
You may think I’m paranoid. And you’re right."
