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.
