I know conversations of "otherness" are hard to have, but it is a sign of progress. There are many other parts of the world (and even of our own city!) where these conversations about accents, or ethnic background, etc are not happening and therefore we are not learning from them. All of us are biased, the more we know about our biases, the better we are at dealing with them.
