"Debut author Mateo Askaripour wants you to know he sees you. In fact, the dedication to his forthcoming novel, Black Buck, reads, “To all of those who have ever been made to feel less than/ I see you”. The latter half of 2020 was spent exploring what visibility means for Black people in particular with a series of racially based reckonings that swept through corporate America revealing the insidious ways that systemic oppression continuously denies people of color opportunities. Movements like Pull Up For Change and The 15% Pledge were founded as pathways to more equitable workplaces and avenues to transparency around recruitment and hiring practices. In industries like entertainment and fashion, “diversity” is a hot button topic and actually quite easy to manipulate even when the intentions are not as virtuous as things would appear but in the larger corporate world, in less sexy industries, racism rules in a way that is protected by the nature of these vocations being more hidden from public scrutiny."
