"I’m starting to understand the real failings of multi-cultural education growing up in K-12 schools. We gave everyone access to the “fun” parts of culture. Let’s sing the dreidel song! Now we understand the Jewish experience. Let’s talk about segregation. Wasn’t that wrong. Aren’t we glad it’s over? Let’s take turns reading parts of the “I Have a Dream” speech. We had access to the easy stuff without having to really examine the hard stuff. And we were giving easy access to things that aren’t “ours” and shouldn’t be “ours.” So you can’t just pick up the “fun” stuff and put it into your party theme or Facebook pictures. I’m using simple terms like fun because that’s how multiculturalism was given to us as children. And while it may have served a purpose at the time, it gave us too much access to claim things that aren’t ours.

I honestly, honestly think that is some of the reasons why the race parties are such a horrible fad on college campuses. They are carrying on what we did in elementary school. Let’s make culture a party! Everyone bring your cultural food and put on a costume! The racism is present and good percentage of the participants are really expressing deep rooted racism. But some truly don’t want to “understand why it’s wrong” when they are re-enacting what we used to do with culture in elementary schools. Culture was supposed to be fun. “I don’t understand why you are mad now? I thought culture was a party!” Party’s over kids. Put down the head-dress."

Boys and Girls

Today at the park I saw the most amazing family. They were gathered in a four person circle in the middle of the grass. They started running in place and laughing together. Then they did dynamic stretches. And the little boy is about five and the girl looks about eight. And they don’t look like the fittest family at the park but they are doing their thing and having fun. Then the dad starts doing boxing exercises with BOTH his son and daughter. Having them weave up and down and throw jabs at his open palms. He’s laughing and smiling and encouraging his kids. I can tell he used to legitimately box. And then the son sort of gives up or tires out and chills on the grass, but the daughter keeps wanting to practice and the dad is so into it too, boxing with his daughter.

And I’m thinking - the world needs more dads like this. And then girls would grow up feeling badass, strong and unstoppable. Because girls need sports and a dad who plays catch with them just a much as boys.

Post work post class long board session. Summer evenings are worth the 100 degree days!
