After Listening, Then What?

After Listening, Then What?

It is time to listen AND change. We are one race, the human race. Profitting from and promoting division based on skin color and old ideas about race can end. All it takes is a decision. Those with the ability to make the decisions to change must accept the responsibiity when they do not choose to change, and all events arising from endorsing judgments based on race, ugly stereotypes and discrimination. We should be proud of all our sports teams, their names and their mascots. For now we can work to make the changes become real.  NOW. To think that the businesses that are major sports teams cannot develop new identities ignores their histories--almost every single team has had several names. As the world changes so do the teams. The time for this to happen is now.
