Why do people apologize for revealing who they are? Nancy Gordeuk is the latest to express herself.
A rude awakening for students graduating from TNT Academy located in Stone Mountain, GA. Video captured a school director's comments at this non-traditional independent study school. Students, who paid $250-$300, walked out of the ceremony in protest of the comments made by Nancy Gordeuk.
School director Nancy Gordeuk comments:“You people are being so rude to not listen to this speech,” “It was my fault that we missed it in the program. Look who’s leaving — all the black people.”
If these are the thoughts of administration, how can you help students effectively if you feel this way?
People apologize for inappropriately expressing their beliefs.
It's also self-serving to apologize rather than risk losing one's employment or have others in society mistreat them in some way.
When people apologize it's not the same as them saying they don't believe in what they said.
They're just saying they wish they had "put it another way". However if one is anonymous or believes they're untouchable they're much more likely to express their thoughts anyway they wish.
It human nature to apologize when one stands to lose something.

I have tried placing rss feeds of my Hub today and all that will show up is the comments to my hubs. In the past, I have linked my Hubs this way to my blogs,and pages such as My yahoo, but for some reason it is not working now.

Hello Hubbers,We are going to be switching latest Hubs out from the sidebar of Hubs and going with Hot Hubs. As always, we are working on several changes that we hope are improvements. This should be live today or tomorrow. Best,Paul

Are the latest revealed sexist comments by Trump defensible?It would appear that they are not defensible to good folks. They may even rise to what some would call sinful. I have heard a whole lot worse things. In fact I have heard them a whole lot. Locker rooms and bars for sure. A few fellows...
