An Anti-Biogtry Plea.

How many pleas have you heard against bigotry and racism?  Well, here is a personal one. I was raised to treat all as individuals, but I didn’t always practice that.

The point is to try and stretch your mind and become better.  Instead of pitching to your heart, I’m pitching to your mind.  You don’t want your mind to stagnate, do you?

Well consider learning about and respecting others, an expansion of your mind.  Free Your Mind, is the title of an En Vogue song.  It’s a good start.

Yes, I am guilty of using the N word. (I lost a friendship over it, because I was drunk and stupid).  You will get nothing Pollyanna like from me, but the truth.  I’m not proud of it.  I kicked over pro Palestinian tables in college.  Wrote threatening notes to someone who put out a Palestinian flag.

Why am I telling you this and admitting this to you?  Because I want my readers to be more mature than I once was.  I am brave enough (I hope) to admit to my mistakes.

Yes, free and expand your mind.  You might learn something.


About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
