There are a number of reasons to avoid the
conversation. This avoidance may be acceptable or
a much lesser offense if it were not the well-being of
all humanity dependent upon both the initiation and
perpetuation of dedicated discussion.
Americans may perceive it to be about race
relations in the United States (we can be somewhat
egocentric); it is really about the nature of human
equality the world wide. And for that we can be truly
Looking through this frame, society is seen to be in
decline- and it is directly related to practices
contributing to the mixing of races. It is the failure
("hello"!?) of the legitimate superior race to ascend
to its (apparently not) God-given destiny.
This person yearns for "the good-old days" when the

The actions affiliated with a "moderate" (AKA half-assed) degree of difficulty, is to adopt
the belief that problems related to race no longer exist. While acknowledging there
The "difficult" path is made so as its conclusion must be determined by
Bearing the burden of original thought- found in the penetration of
boundaries on the outer-fringe- the individual contributes positively to
the advancement of new frontiers in the interests of 'common-good'.

Understanding arrives in quiet moments and through the just works that

Degree of Difficulty
Past and Present
It is humbling and frightening for any individual to contemplate the notion that they may have
been complicit- or, worse yet, a perpetrator in something now so widely recognized as very
wrong. Yet, as custodians of the present, all well-intended people find it necessary to reconcile
the issues presented in some fashion- both individually and collectively. The forces of Creation
and the burden of 'knowing' obligates the address of these issues.

An 'easy' way out for the "Couch Potato" Soul-Searcher is to adopt the belief that
any one person actually is inferior/superior based solely upon the fortune of their
'supremacy' requires little effort as confident 'knowing' demands no search for evidence
to the contrary.'
may have been misunderstandings in the past, this person states they "had
nothing to do with it" and has likely convinced themselves they "never would
At first glance it may seem that this would be an "easy" method but
the intentional disregard of abundant evidence to the contrary
requires the expenditure of considerable energy over a life-long
commitment straining to 'look the other way' . Meanwhile, little
acknowledgment is given the fact that they had really nothing to do with the forces
that dictate the era in which any one individual is to experience the brief state of life
