“I’m a young black man—I’ve encountered some racism and profiling. But these things happen in the world. You have to try not to let your environment control the impact you want to make. You have to try not to let your circumstances affect your performance, your attitude, your behavior. It’s called non-situational integrity.
And if you really have to sacrifice your morals in a certain situation, you need to find a better situation. If you have to sacrifice the morals and values you hold dear for your job, then you shouldn’t work there. If you go to a church and it contradicts everything you believe to be true, that’s not the place for you. If you cannot be who you are around certain people and you cannot maintain your level of self-worth, then you don’t need to be around those people.”
