Race is a very sensitive topic these days so before I publish my remarks, I would like to make some comments. All races and cultures deserve respect. There is never a cause to violify one culture over another. More important race, and culture are more important to heed. In my post, I said that I feared the Academy Awards may be putting too much attention on race rather than on producing quality art.
I also believe that people will have more favorable outcomes when they know what they want from their outcomes and trust their doctor more than the "fads of the day." We should be brave in trusting biology and science.
We should put greater emphasis on medicine and what unites us and stop putting emphasis on what divides us. Looking for the exceptions is bad science.
I think dropping the habit of looking for differences will help no one. In the end, I think all the talk on reparations (justified or not) will only lead to division and resentment. There is not enough money in the world to right all wrongs. Racial division is like drinking poison and waiting for the other guy to die.
I hope you agree that if we always look for things that divide us, we will doubtless find them. Jesus taught "If you are not one, you are not mine."
Last, a huge wave of immigration is coming. Let's try to be smart about it.
