I know this hits on a common theme we see. We are familiar with this. So I thought I would draw it.

One of the things we talk about a lot at The Lasting Supper is how to raise our children to be open-minded, fair, and universally compassionate in this world. Raising our children differently than we were raised, in accordance with our new-found wisdom, is a challenge. Come join us!

    For evidence/proof of human evolution, look no further than the color of human skin. When the first humans moved from Africa some 60,000 years ago, their skin was dark. As they moved to colder regions that had less Sun exposure, human skin became lighter and lighter.

    The thing with kids is that they will imitate the behaviour that is shown them. The starting point must surely be with that.

    Difficult to do in cultures that are inherently racist. Of course the other side of the coin is that not every claim of racism is accurate with some giving the appearance of addressing racism but in themselves being racist.

    And there are always those who will try to Game the System for their own personal advantage.

    Yes Headless, exactly “there are always those who will try to Game the System” players will play.
