COMBATING BIGOTRY & HATE
Just as criminologists have developed profiles of common traits for individuals like serial killers, mass murderers, terrorists, and the like, it would be an interesting exercise to develop a profile for ranting, raving bigots who infest the internet fringe.
ANTI-RELIGIOUS PROPAGANDA
In early March, the TV Academy hired a consulting firm, ostensibly to address issues of equality head-on. Under the banner of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), the company will analyze “staff and member composition, attitudes and perceptions regarding DEI, opportunities for improvement, and expansion of current practices.”
COMBATING BIGOTRY & HATE
I grew up around horses. My family raised them, cared for them, rode them, bred them, trained them, bought and sold them. Back then it was even still legal to go out and catch wild horses and bring them home.
COMBATING BIGOTRY & HATE
Here’s how it shakes out: Really nice, friendly, intelligent, helpful, communicative people: 34. The people I was afraid of: 0.

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

No one deserves that. Yet the world is full of such conflicts. What can we do about it? Personal justice starts with each of us. It can span the gamut from resolving a playground fight between children with fairness to accommodation of religious beliefs in the workplace.

ANTI-RELIGIOUS PROPAGANDA
Working for the United Nations is an honor. The UN’s core values reflect a desire for a better, safer, freer society for all. Its charter includes the purposes “promoting and encouraging respect for human rights and for fundamental freedoms for all without distinction as to race, sex, language or religion.”
TOLERANCE
When any label about someone else is offered, peel it back. Find out what’s actually underneath. Free them from the cage in your mind and talk to them honestly. Keep your own counsel. Find your own truths. You don’t need to agree. You don’t have to join them. But having another friend is never bad, even if he is (or especially because he is) from another religion.
