The white man in that photo

Some of us have the honor and privilege of remembering Peter Norman, John Carlos and Tommie Smith from that day in 1968. But then, we also have the responsibility of teaching their courage to our children.

Which is another reason why the Twins won’t be going to public schools, and just might be home schooled. I don’t want my kids to forget the ongoing struggle for true equality – and think the hype about sexual orientation has anything at all to do with civil rights should be given equal billing.

Kudos to Riccardo and Griot and BBC for reminding me.
