I’m practicing deep breathing before Debate Night begins. I’m just home from the Worcester CoatsForKids charity event that Bob’s band donated their evening to. It was a powerful reminder that ALL colors of people are deserving of love, respect, and support.
I believe we should never disparage someone for the fact that they were born Hispanic or Black or anything else. The very idea baffles me. How can a person censure another person for the circumstances of their birth? Do any of us control that? And it’s even more mind-boggling to me when the person disparaging is Irish or Italian when, only a generation or two ago, THEIR families were the ones being maligned for their facial features and skin color. Is memory that short?
