We do bad stuff. Justice does not triumph yet. (Sometimes I have hope.)

August 15, 2017

Critically important article in the Washington Post… CHARLOTTESVILLE IS NOT THE CONTINUATION OF AN OLD FIGHT. IT IS SOMETHING NEW. Can we do this something new? Will you join the fight?

Seth Godin’s insightful commentary about bad science and good science: SLOPPY SCIENCE…”For hundreds of years, though, science has gotten it wrong about gender, race and ethnicity. Eugenics and its brethren sound simple, but often lead to tragic outcomes.”

Saturday morning, August 13, we visited the National Museum of African American History and Culture. We heard about Charlottesville on the way to the Museum. At the museum, we saw the the best summary of our national shame – and the West’s shame, too. Racism so detailed, so intentional so planned…and so spontaneous.

For me…Days of sadness and embarrassment and huge anger for my country… my fellow citizens… my world… those I know and don’t know…All of us.
