I have struggled with issues of “voice” at different times throughout my career. I have had to acknowledge that I have an interpretation of events that is worthy of consideration. One of the most helpful suggestions that I have received came from my partner (Sundiata Cha-Jua). I received a rejection letter for a manuscript on a project on the influence of color-blind racial ideology on attitudes and behaviors, one of my central areas of research.

The accumulation of facts or knowledge will not likely result in general laws or broad scale theories of human behavior as it was earlier conceived. Human behavior is multi-determined; that is, a single action can be determined by any one of several preceding events. Moreover, human actions consist of complex chains in which preceding events increase or decrease the probability that some subsequent action will occur, but behavior is not a uniform process across individuals or even within individuals over time.
