I am a first generation Jamaican immigrant whose experiences and accomplishments were made possible by the courage, sacrifices and the heroic acts of many whose bodies have rotted away in unmarked graves. Those are my heroes. Their sacrifices and death paved the way for my children and I. Failure to Listen is a token of my eternal gratitude. Failure to Listen is a tribute those generations of unmarked graves occupied by people of all races whose ultimate sacrifice of life opened the door for me and others, THANK YOU. Failure to Listen https://failuretolisten.wordpress.com/ uses cultural lenses to appreciate and understand the relationships between current events and our values, beliefs and attitudes. Culture is everything without it we are nothing. Failure to Listen will take you on a journey to recognize the beauty of our differences as the seeds to creativity, innovation and resolving disparities. By sharing my personal and professional experiences, I hope to do justice to the perspectives of those who are rarely heard or listened to. This site is not to incite anger but rather to provoke thought. It is my hope that Failure to Listen will work to foster intergroup dialogues and motivate readers to step outside the box and get to know ALL PEOPLE. In the spirit of Martin Luther King, let's join hands and remember his famous speech about a dream... A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. -Margaret Mead

  1. Nietzsche? Hahahaha, did you know that the thoughts of this man were/are embraced by for instance Zionists as well as Nazis? It’s all in the interpretation, babe. The quotes you offered are nothing when not put in context with Nietzsche’s work, and standing alone only are delicious food for the self proclaimed righteous ones to justify and further their creepy crap.

    1. You have me at a disadvantaged but if I recall Nietzsche was an existentialist.

      History is funny. 100 years from now people might be appalled at the atrocities of Americans and their privileged attitudes as well as their “legalized” acts of terrorism and genocide. That is if the people can gain a foothold on the internet to control the input of data, interpretation and utilization.

      1. 100 years from now people will scratch their heads in disbelief, when getting the info that we were driving cars.

        Treason, strategy, and stuff like that, belong to a world I left a long time ago, but still use sometimes when lured or forced back into same. When that happens, contrary to your approach, all hell breaks loose, as I don’t play by the rules. But mind you, not on a large scale, oh no, only the ones that crossed my path with the sole intention to disturb my humble way of living will curse the day they came up with that plan. It’s then when I return to my cozy caves, leaving them behind suffering in agony, picking their runny noses, and wondering: “What just happened?”

    1. Our systems are the definitions of corrupt…… It is so bad in this country the stench keeps people away from each other. it stinks all over this country. I can’t point to a sector that does not come complete with fraud and corruption.

      My opinion is clouded by the culture of my experiences.
