Thank you Lauren, me too, i don't want to be dismissed as angry and

attacking anyone--no one is trying to be racist here and i am not

accusing anyone, just the data is troubling to me. I do have some

issues for concern which needs constructive mediation and positive

engagement. I am deeply sorry i haven't learned how to express myself

properly. i am learning and transorming in this process too, please

bear with me. i will take this matter to the proper mediation so we

can speak to each other as allies and move forward with strength and

clarity.

peace

shaista
