Re: Racism and Prejudice


I was raised never to speak or write words that express hateful or derogatory stereotypes towards anyone, because each of us is a child of God. My family did not speak or write that way. That's not because we wanted to virtue signal. That's because we believed that each person on this earth, regardless of race or gender is our brother and sister in the Lord.
If you looked at my emails from the last 10 years or beyond ( most of which I still have), you would see expressions of support and friendship. That's not to say that I always agree with friends, family, or co-workers. But I don't use racial or ethnic slurs, as those are totally unnecessary.
It's not true that "we all write those words", and Gruden was victimized just because he was caught. We don't all speak like that. We don't all write those words, and if everyone in the NFL is doing that, then it needs to be stopped. Make an example of Gruden if necessary, but it needs to stop. No more excuses that "everyone does it." - BE
