A New Approach to Ending Racism and Bigotry is Needed
Racism and bigotry stem from ignorance and arrogance, sometimes combined with economic interests (i.e. competing social groups often don’t like each other).
As this election has shown, political correctness is not the answer. All it achieved was sweeping much of the racism and bigotry under the rug. This election moved the rug. The racism and bigotry is still there. It always has been and the minorities have been trying to tell us that for some time.
If political correctness, and social pressure does not actually change things in a meaningful way, then what is the answer? The answer is actually changing the hearts and minds of people. It’s much more involved than just suppressing and silencing them, but it has more of a lasting effect.
Helping people embrace life's opportunities.™
