Diversity is a beautiful thing.

The human spirit is a beautiful thing.

Within each individual there is goodness, brilliance, and energy.

Each child should be nurtured and helped to develop into a good person.

Diversity has nothing to do with whether a school is good or bad.

Want better schools? Read to your children, create a nurturing home environment, show your children you value learning. We need good parents.

Schools are not good or bad because of racism or racial makeup. The good news is racism is just about dead. The inconvenient truth is there is no one to blame for lack of success except ourselves.

James, I think your picture is in this definition:

Comment #2 by Joe Shmoe on 2014 03 26

Thank you for this Joe.

I read the Wikipedia page and watched the youtube movie.

There are a lot of different ideas there. I never heard of “laissez-faire racism.”

I understand that minorities have suffered from racism and are still suffering from its lingering effects today. History is full of atrocities committed by people of all races.

In my personal case, I am of European descent. I am neither overly proud nor ashamed of it. My families came to North America rather recently. They came here because they were all very poor and wanted a better life. None of them ever had slaves but I assume some or all of them had prejudices. We are all greatly effected by the attitudes and times in which we live. They certainly may have benefited in the US by being European.

Now it seems to me that some people have a burning desire to label others as racist.

And just about no one wants to be a racist.

So let’s be clear. What does racist mean anyway?

The dictionary says racism is: “the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, esp. so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races.”

Using that definition I am not a racist. Sorry to disappoint. I swear by all that is holy that I sincerely do not believe that every individual of a particular race is the same. That’s ridiculous. And I do not believe that one race is inferior or superior to another. I do see dramatic differences in character and degree of ability in individuals of all races.

Life is not fair.

And sorry, but we all have to try and we all need to be responsible for ourselves, our lives and our families.

Comment #3 by James Berling on 2014 03 26

James, I think you have to dig a little deeper to understand the difference between interpersonal racism and institutional racism

but Stephen Colbert feel your pain
