I am a brick factory worker in New York City.
I am from Queens, a borough that is not only famous for its brick industry but also for its amazing diversity.
In Brooklyn, the majority of people are white and I have been called a “white trash” a “nigger” and a “chocolatey-haired little whore.”
But I love to make beautiful, functional, affordable, sustainable bricks for my fellow human beings.
I also love to take care of my neighbors, who are also people of color.
In New York, we are often told that we are not good people, but that we can’t be.
When I say that we aren’t good, I am not talking about the poor, the poor.
I’m talking about those who are poor and are not white.
This is a problem for me.
When a brick is made, we make it in a way that it will not look nice, but also not be a threat.
We do this because we know that the most beautiful brick we can make will not be seen by other people.
I’ve been working in the brick industry for over 50 years.
I have worked with all sorts of brick and mortar brick stores.
When you think about it, brick manufacturing is a labor of love for the people who make it.
Every brick is hand-crafted and made from one of the most sustainable materials on Earth.
Every piece of brick is constructed by hand with a passion for quality and the best possible results.
So why would I want to leave this profession?
There are many reasons why I would want to do this, but the biggest one is because I believe in the potential of the human body and my fellow workers.
I believe we have the potential to be stronger, healthier, happier, and more productive than we are right now.
I want every brick in the world to look beautiful, beautiful and functional.
Every single brick should be a gift to those around me and I want everyone to have a chance to share this gift with their family and friends.
I see a brick as a beautiful, resilient, beautiful piece of metal that will last a lifetime and I believe that a beautiful brick is one that can do that.
But if I am going to live and breathe brick, I also have to be able to breathe bricks.
This means that I need to be a part of the community.
I need a brick to live in, a brick that I can share with my family and neighbors, and a brick in my life that is beautiful, sustainable, and functional for me to work and be happy.
I cannot afford to live off of other people’s labor.
When my family comes to visit, I have to work.
I must be available for work every day.
I should be able live and work anywhere I want, anytime I want.
I do not want to be forced to do things that I am uncomfortable with.
This work should be the product of my mind and body.
I work hard to make the bricks I make look good.
When these bricks are made, I believe they will be a joy to look at and to look through.
And when I have a beautiful house, I think that my neighbors will appreciate my beautiful home, my beautiful work, and my beautiful brickwork.
But I do want to share my work with the world.
And I do have one final request: When I finish working in a brick, why not take a little time to enjoy it?
Why not give it a chance?
Because when I finish, I want my home to look like it did when I made it.
I will be proud to have made a beautiful home for my family.
The brick factory I work in is a huge part of my life.
Every day I have an opportunity to be in the bricks making room, to share in the magic that happens inside, and to see the bricks that I make, how they look, and how they function.
I love working with other people and I know that we will be able do so much more in the future if we all worked together.
I can’t imagine what life would be like without brick factories, and I can only hope that someday we will all be working in them.
Let’s make it happen!
