Say What?

As Ol' BC was reading this George Will column, a couple of things stood out. White people are victims of institutional racism and public schools in some parts publish the fact that they wish to promote a communist spirit.

Until June, the school district's Web site declared that ``cultural racism''
includes ``emphasizing individualism as opposed to a more collective ideology,''

Sheesh! What ever happened to the idea of cultivating individualism and developing an individual's strengths so they have a better opportunity to succeed in life?

Just a thought.

The American ideology and fascination with individualism is really somewhat contradictory, anyway. We stress individual expression and identity while attempting to promote equality for all people. And, we fracture our society the more we promote the individual as a healthy and isolated entity. We are part of a community. There is no harm in promoting this idea, and I would not really call it communism. I would call it reality.

I look forward to some of the influx of new and healthier ideologies in America. I feel we have too long been splintered and isolated from each other. Promoting community can exist quite happily with the tenants of Democracy and Capitalism.
