Opinion: An open letter to the Wallys emcee

Unfortunately, being a person of color comes with extra responsibilities of being hyper-aware of our actions because every move we make can be used against us.  Tonight was the fuel they look for to feed the hateful, racist fire that has broken out in our country. You claim you strive to not be put in a box thus you prey on innocent women to try and prove yourself as more than tech-support but you just set us 100 steps back in our fight for equality.
