We actually had an interesting conversation about race. In real life he is African American, but I am not.

 

Updated with post-launch information, and added border.

I co-organized this week-long unconference for progressive activists in SL.

This is what I look like in SecondLife. This t-shirt was my very first "prim" (ie: object created in SL).

Discussing state and local politics.

Being a member of the inworld Code Pink group, I naturally wore my pinkest outfit. Well, the Victorian equivalent anyway. I think the color is called Solferino. *grin* I wish I had it to march with Code Pink in the real world which I do when I can.

At RootsCamp, Progressive Island

The white lady asked us questions about race in Secod Life, do we get treated differently, etc. My response: the only difference is that people often ask me why my avatar is black. Then she says she's hispanic in real life. "But your avatar doesn't look hispanic," I said. I don't think she got it.

 

See the entire conversation here: lotusmedia.org/would-you-rather-be-the-oppressor-or-the-o...

Tomorrow there will be tons of avatars here!
