The Homosexual Paradigm – Personal Experience

(Originally posted May 1, 2012.  Re-posted out of a sense of need for the current discussion).

Trayvon Martin – Racism – and the Media Message

But think, for a moment, if you will of Madelyn Dunham, a white woman from Kansas, strolling the aisle of a supermarket, or having lunch in a coffee shop, with her grandson–way back at the turn of the 1970s, when […]

A Personal Experience with Prejudice

The winter of 1963-64 was a rough one. I was in the eighth grade. John F. Kennedy had just been assassinated. My school was becoming integrated (the authorities sent one African American boy to our school and called it good enough). It was code (sic) outside. And my teachers did not like me. (At least, […]
