It's a little odd. I took stock of who some of my heroes are about a week ago. I'm sure that a few more could come to mind, but my initial list
Lionel Hampton, Ray Charles, Clarence Thomas, Dr. Ben Carson, Walter Williams, Thomas Sowell. I was surprised to realize that they are all Black.
So, I tried to come up with a White list. Peter Kreeft, PhD philosophy, C.S. Lewis, Cambridge Scholar and Professor. All right, that took care of
the academics. How about other Whites?
G.K. Chesterton, P.G. Wodehouse, extraordinarily gifted writers.
And from the religious side, Fulton Sheen and the Pope.
So six Black, six White.
Me? My grandparents were born in Europe, my parents were born in Canada, and I was born in the US. Just can't settle down, it seems.
I don't feel hate. Frustration sometimes, discouragement, maybe even irritation in rare cases. No hate here.
