SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Re: We need Black History Month

There is a big difference between recognizing something happening in the past and continuing to apologize for something that I had nothing to do with. I for one don’t know anyone who has been a slave. Although the newest and coolest form of slavery is taking over the country using social programs to create a dependent population. It’s working like a charm.

You shouldn’t ever have to feel a need to apologize for something you didn’t do. Nor should you ever feel it necessary to try to justify something you didn’t do. No one is asking that you apologize, just that you empathize. Put yourself in the shoes of the oppressed and admit that such a situation would suck, and then make sure that you help make sure these things never, ever happen again. Make sure that you look at people as people and not as things, and that is all you ever really need to do to help make the world a better place.

Re: Article roils Workshop’s waters

Eric Bennett is remarkably pretentious and self-absorbed. His article, as someone else has noted, is "like a dispatch from the Martian embassy." A connection with the CIA? Professor Bennett needs help. And soon.

I have it on good authority that the Martian Embassy had nothing to do with Mr. Bennett’s article.
