    • I would like to add something else. As you said “Empathy is the foundation of truly civilized societies” and that is so true! I can’t not understand this need we have to make it a contest of us vr them, or to hate the “other”. Of course when one segment of the population is oppressed , we all are oppressed. I need to look it up, but once there was a written work about when they came for such group I did not stand up for them.. then when they came for me I did not have anyone to stand up for me. Well we need to stand up here and realise that a group of people have been paying with their lives for what the rest of us never gave a second thought to. A true story. As an 20 year old stationed at fort Gordon GA, I was getting 30 days leave before going overseas. Before anyone yells no way I was prior service transferred to the army. I was speeding totally, wrong of me , trying to get everything done so I could go on vacation. I was stopped. As the police officer got out of his cruiser I did everything wrong! I leaped out of my car, I started talking, I was just so excited. I even started to walk to meet him. He took my id and my military info, smiled and told me several things. One I was speeding but if I promised to not speed the rest of the day he would let me go. I said some really loud “yes Sir” as I had been taught in the army. He looked into the back of my car and seen the cooler I had ready to go holding soda, and he advised me strongly not to drink until I was done driving. He also mentioned I shouldn’t jump out of the car when stopped, even though he saw I was an eager happy young man he thought I should stay in the car if I was stopped again. Basicly what I am saying is I was a young white boy in the military. I was totally wrong, I was speeding like heck. The policeman was totally correct and I had no excuses. But what if I had been black. I shudder now to think how bad that could have gone for me. I wouldn’t have made it passed the car door before being shot. Sorry but that is how white privilege works. I got away with being a stupid dumb half mature kid who did something wrong because I was white. We need to fix this problem. Thanks and hugs

  2. Reblogged this on The Recovering Know It All and commented:
    Reblogging this because… Damn, don’t it tell the Truth? I’m a Kansas boy from the Midwest who grew up more Hick than Redneck. Don’t hate, there is a difference. It’s just that hicks don’t know enough to tell it, and Rednecks don’t give a Damn to care about it. (Sorry, old country boy joke) Enjoy the post, Think for Yourself and have a great Labor Day. -kia

    • Thanks and I left a comment on your blog. I lived back in the country ( easier to hide your sins that way) and we were always looked at as rather backward “farm folk” or as the kids put it.. “cow kids”. Oh well we live , we learn and hopefully we gain empathy for each other. Hugs

        • Oh I love reblogs. You may use anything on my blog you like. It makes me feel really good when people think what I post is worth not only reading but also putting on their own blogs. So you made me feel great. Thanks. Hugs
