Stop it with the *all white men*

I have to say something, it isn’t going to be particularly well-spoken or eloquent, it isn’t going to be all I need or want to say, but I have to unburden my heart in some small way . . .

I am noticing an alarming trend sweeping through our country, one that takes white men and categorically dumps them all into the same heap of rubbish, ready to be set ablaze.

This scares me. So much.

See, I have three sons. White men. Good, good men. Perhaps better than most, and right now, they are being set up to receive the years of backlash that are undoubtedly going to be the result of this campaign of blame.

They are not any of the things currently being spewed in regard to white men everywhere. When you say these things, write these things, share these things, you are actively putting my sons future at risk.

There are men and women of every color worthy of being called out in this way, but not as a group, as individuals.

And as far as any comments to the effect of, “This has been done to MY people”, or any other comparisons, just stop. Not here. I did not do those things. My sons did not do those things.

All we are doing is further DIVIDING us as a people. – all Asian men – all Indian men – all black men – all white men – this DOES NOT work.

  1. It is scary to think we have made progress – and this is it. No one group holds the blame for anything unless they actively participated. All groups deserve respect – and we cannot find it ourselves by taking it away from others.
