White people can usually count on having white bosses, white teachers and white friends. But for people of color, coping with being the only person of your kind in an overwhelmingly white space can be a daily struggle.
Of course, the institutionalized inequalities of modern society haven’t stopped minorities from showing up and participating anyway, even when environments are so monochromatic they may feel outright unwelcome. Many people of color are all too familiar with those moments and have taken to social media, inspired by the upcoming film Dear White People, to show the world what it looks and feels like to be a token minority, using the hashtag #TokenTuesday.
