Ok, so I have another strike against me
I'm of European descent (My kids are however classified as mixed by US standards)
I'm not financially dependent on the govt
I'm male (shame I know)
I'm married to a woman
I'm married to a woman who was born that way
and I'm now a "fuzzy thinker"
Ok seriously now,
yes, we are not all the same and the whole equality movement forgot that part although to be fair they were starting from a low base and I think today we are seeing women allowed to be women in the work place but still treated fairly.
I have no nice for discrimination of anyone by skin tone, but there are issues with some cultures in the work place that its culture, not skin tone and in some cases these individuals need to learn to adapt, not force a whole business to adapt for them.
My youngest has a few extra challenges that we are dealing and was at one stage thought to be "on the spectrum", but likely not. In class he struggles to learn if he has to sit still for long periods. He can but his brain stops listening as its too focused on doing as he's told.
In my school days these kids were often deemed trouble makers and often received the cane as a result. The teachers thought back then the cane made them settled down, but the cane actually provides the physical stimulation their brain needs, but can be achieved by simply being allowed to walk around the room, of have something in their mouth. Many of these kids bombed out of school through being in trouble or simply being bored and often then in trouble with the police later on, my kid is top Maths, but bottom English due to his challenges (long story). Note: From a very young age at school, I believed the use of the cane or strap by an adult on a child is assault and a cowardly act and my views have not changed.
My boy's therapist says who husband has the same issue, he's a A380 pilot with Emirates. He's career choice and achievement is a case study in itself as this is not what they would normally predict, but this guy has found a way to be able to sit still for long periods yet remain focused.
