The majority of people simply...........AIN'T READY..........(Yes, I know better than to say ain't but I am using the 60s colloquialism indicating that some people just aren't ......well, ready)
Good point! I think discussion is productive when you don't have the expectation of having someone agree with you. Maybe the first thing to do is state an objective. Maybe, I just want to share my perspective? It has to be with someone who cares.

Sorry for the typos. Thats what I get for using a phone to comment on topics. Haha. I am very open to discussion. As an anthropology major, I am very interested in all perspectives.
Tori, I usually don't pay attention to typos because I understand the intent. I cannot use my smartphone to dial numbers correctly. I certainly have trouble typing comments.
I wish I lived near you. I would love to ask all kinds of questions about South Africa. Marvin Jenkins, musician who has passed away, said he had to lie on the floor when riding in South Africa because Blacks were not supposed to ride with whites.
