Critical White Studies Part I ~ White Privilege

Critical White Studies Part I ~ White Privilege

A controversial topic at the table of American discourse is always the construct of “Whiteness.”
A civil discussion requires a semblance of historical knowledge, context, language, critical research and thinking.
These are the tools that provide veracity, confidence and consideration of different perspectives and perceptions.
These tools also provide emotional intelligence and moral courage to stay the course, continue the conversation and even enhance it.
The discourse is not a walk in the park and can be personally exhaustive and painful.
But to fear critically examining and dissecting the tenets of -isms and phobias only speaks to the desperation of keeping such fallacies alive.
The five part series provides awareness, insights and possible solutions that remain in our hands.
The choice to engage or not has always been ours.

Diversity and Athletics as Fans and Citizens

Diversity and Athletics as Fans and Citizens

Athletics and sports are part of our social-cultural matrix. They are our communal national passion. We love our sports and marvel at human athleticism.
Can we, connect our fanaticism with athletics to our responsibilities to our Democracy as citizens?
Can we turn March Madness to a daily passion to enhance the quality of life, inclusivity and equity for each fan and citizen?
History beckons us to do so.
