I Know You Are But What Am I


 

It is a all relative, If you only see and listen to what you believe to be true ,then from your perspective it is true and inviolable. However other reasonable persons can look at the same set of facts from a different perspective and draw a totally different conclusion as to truth.  Facts are not valuable until viewed from all perspectives, in fact they are not facts until that occurs. So the next time you make a generalization about any group of people, politically, racially, ethnically, sexually  perhaps you might want to ask yourself, ” of what  could that be true?”  Right now it seems too common for everyone to view the political, racial and ethnic , sexual spectra of behavior as absolutes and having commonalities across the whole group. The only absolute in those group equations are that there are almost never absolutes. We and the media need to quit cherry picking and present “facts” with foundation not in isolation.  Believe it or not every time a Democrat derides Republicans as facists and every time a Republican derides Democrats as socialists/communists, a white person is accused  racism / bigotry or black person as lawlessness without the full story behind the statement , It drives another nail into the heart of the warty beauty of our nation.  I am reminded too frequently of a Pee Wee Herman argument…… I know you are but what am I.

About safrisri

I was a school teacher until retirement. I have taught at all educational levels from pre-school to college. My college degree is general science which I arrived at after 5 years and 5 different majors. A degree as it turns out, almost as valuable and in demand as one in Neo-Bulgarian Mythology. I have been around education for around 40 years and can remember when teaching was a pleasant, happy and creative job and our schools were the same. Now I'm the guy sitting on the porch with an opinion on everything.
