There’s many ways to fight for the America-that-could-be. I learned Mr. Roger’s way. Treat people with respect as individuals. I take it to heart and continually work on it, although I don’t always succeed. When I don’t succeed, I get back on the horse I fell off of and continue. I’m a white guy. I can do that and feel that my job is done. Now lets say I encounter someone saying, “That’s great but it stops short and here’s what you’re blind to”. I don’t have to listen. You don’t have to listen. That’s the privilege I’ve been afforded. I can even say “It’s not privilege”.
