One of my favorite quotes comes from Mark Twain, in which he said, “A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is still putting on its shoes.” It’s true. We live in a society that chomps its bits at the craziest controversies – and I do mean the craziest. Forget the crazy [...]
It’s true – racism is an act that can be imposed on white people contrary to the stigma associated with such a shunned word. I would know. I am white – I was a victim of racism. It all started one amazingly gorgeous even out dining and having a drink with my husband. You know, [...]
