Celebrate Diversity Every Month

February in the United States is Black History Month. Anyone with even minimal cultural awareness recognizes the importance of one of our nation’s oldest organized history celebrations. Originally announced as Negro History Week back in 1926, every president since Gerald Ford through Joe Biden has issued a statement honoring the beauty, joy, and perseverance of Black Americans. Ronald Reagan once said that “understanding the history of Black Americans is a key to understanding the strength of our nation.” This understanding can help us heal from our ugly history of oppression, slavery, abuse, and hatred and move toward the equality that our Constitution grants to all people, regardless of their race, gender, or religious beliefs. Sadly, the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, reports that hate crimes rose again in 2023 in the nation’s 10 largest cities.

Is Ken a “Hollow” Man?

Occasionally, I say or write something about a sensitive subject that opens me up to criticism and comments from those who do not agree with me. One instance was after my 2019 post, Accountable to Act like Men about a controversial commercial by Gillette. Another came from Balancing Our Masculine and Feminine Sides.

However, that approach is passive, which is what I believe ails many guys today. So since passivity is not in my make-up (pun intended!), I’ll stick my neck out once again. Among the films on the recent Academy Award nominations is the year’s biggest-grossing movie, “Barbie.” Many people were upset that the Academy snubbed Greta Gerwig for Best Director

Don’t Boo or Criticize People

Recently, the NBA’s Chicago Bulls organization created a Ring of Honor to celebrate the changemakers, champions, and icons of their history. Sadly, during the halftime ceremony, some fans booed the announcement of former General Manager, Jerry Krause as part of the inaugural class. Krause’s widow Thelma, seated courtside alongside other honorees, broke down crying in embarrassment. Fortunately, former player, Ron Harper stood up to quickly console her. Ex-Bull and current Golden State Warriors coach, Steve Kerr said the booing was shameful. Bulls television color man, Stacy King scolded the fans who booed. Daily Herald writer, Steve Sarley wrote that people wouldn’t boo the Jerry Krause he knew. Each properly stood up for the legacy of a man and his widow.  Unfortunately, some people feel that buying a ticket to a sporting event, play, or movie, entitles them to do just anything within the law. Sure, they have the right to
