I realize that a equity crowdfunding site may not be the best venue for this reflection, but I wanted to share these thoughts and feelings....
I’ve (Iggy) been doing a lot of thinking and reflection over the last several days. I was an elementary school student the spring and summer of 1968, which saw riots across America, as well as the assassinations of MLK and RFK. It was a time of great disruption and violence, but also a time of great hope. I would have said and hoped that 50+ years later we’d live in a much fairer and more equal America. While that view was probably wrong, I still have hope. I assume that many or all of you are going through similar thoughts. I want you all to know that we are here for each other to discuss and share those feelings. Vansanity was founded to empower aesthetic entrepreneurs; Vansanity will never willfully discriminate on the basis of color, gender, age or ethnicity in all its endeavors. It’s our small part in today’s upside-down world and we will learn over time how much more we can do to help. To all our practitioners , partners and all our constituents, thanks for your patience, perseverance, dedication, creativity and heart. Let’s always try our best to do the right thing.
