Let’s talk Turkey! We not only talk about gratitude, traditions, and history, but also lies proliferated by the White Man and the impact these have on our existence.
My young men have to understand the mistakes other white men have made and be empathetic to the struggles of all of us who are not born white males. My guys are pretty fabulous, but they’ll have to carry the burden of being the change they wish to see in the world differently.
What I’ve written, ‘Lies proliferated by the White Man and why it’s important to me to challenge the myth all white men do not fall into the category of proliferating a white-male-dominated-society-by-white-washing-the-sins-of-our-fathers.
I’m raising men who are aware of their priveledge and obligation to bring better than the ubiquitous over-bearing ‘white-man-domination-to-the-exclusion-of-all-other-races-and-genders’ of the past.’
We choose to take the path less followed. It’s the right path, the harder path, the path that is non-conformist…and, in the words of Mahatma Gandhi, we will, ‘Be the change we wish to see in the world’.
