Do we really want to know?

I read an article the other day about the cheap clothing sold by places like H & M and Forever 21. People flock to these places because of the prices, but the conditions that the workers endure are often deplorable, but does it matter to the average consumer? What about those Apple watches that are made in China, a country not known  for coddling their workers people are proudly sporting the watches. We love the latest and the greatest. Do we really want to know the origins of the watch? Do we want to know the life stories of all the people who helped create that piece or art you proudly affix to your wrist? Do we read the articles and simply shake our heads or do we actually feel compelled to make a change? Share your thoughts.

Robert Deniro tells graduating class “you’re f—ed and people call it a great speech…what?

This morning on Twitter I looked a link to a Time magazine article. The headline said Robert Deniro gives the best commencement speech ever. I read the link and saw Deniro had told those in the creative sciences that they were
f—ed. Call me crazy but I fail to see the brilliance, and I question who are we choosing to deliver commencement addresses. The graduates have worked hard to receive their degrees and wouldn’t it be nice to give the graduates words of encouragement? No it does not have to be rosy nonsense but it certainly does not have to be you’re f—ed. Share your thoughts.

Google Maps directions to Nigger House

Type Nigger House into Google maps and it will take you to the White House. So who did it? Why would they do it? I wish I was shocked but since 2007 we have seen overt racism aimed at the President and his family. It is not going to stop and they are vilified if they choose to share the indignities they have endured.This is just another incident. Not the first and it will not be the last.

Duke professor post racial comments online and is put on leave…is this fair?

Wle often hear people say after every racial incident that we need to have a national conversation on race, but what does that really men? When you have a honest conversation on anything often people get their feelings hurt. Are we mature enough to handle the truth? A Duke professor, Jerry Hough is on leave for posting some racial comments on a NYT article. His comments are his personal opinion. I find them offensive but is racist the right description? Read the linked article and share your thoughts.
