The Nationalist 

The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them. -George Orwell

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 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. I didn’t keep count of that. Besides, it’s nice to agree, but not really important. People like you and I need some disagreement in their life. It keeps us sharp, forces us to look at issues from different angles, reign in our confirmation biases, and shows us when the door to our open mind is closing.

          1. What you mean “new”? I went there, and saw archives from 2014.

            Articles with no name of the writer are not done in my book.

            Persistent Pete? Oh mama! Don’t hide! Gimme yer real name, boy! Show me yer true colors, dude. (Yeah I know you said he’s a paleface).

              1. The writer simply should put his/her real name at the end or on top of her/his article. Like George did, and yours truly is doing.

                By Lilith’s beautiful cascading hair, I can’t stand these anonymous world healers. The world would be better off without them.
