No offense meant - just another hypocrite
I have never read this book and do not plan to read it. It is offensive that this author and "diversity trainer" claims to teach respect for differences and diversity. He does not practice it in his life. He has written an article in the Tupper Lake Free Press newspaper on October 17, 2012 and berates the environmental group, the Sierra Club and individuals who are standing up for what they believe. He calls them "disgruntled", "obstinate", "nuisance", "stubborn" and "mean spirited." Has he ever met them or spoken to them? Has he engaged in conversation so he understands their beliefs? I wonder if that is exactly what he teaches in his diversity training??Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
The words he uses to describe someone with different opinions and beliefs than his own - sure are similar to what people say to members of the GBTL community.
He is just another hypocrite. . .
As Samuel Adams said "It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men."
It saddens me to think this man is teaching others about diversity and sensitivity training when he himself does not practice what he preaches. As "the godfather of gay sensitivity training" according to The New York Times, I would think he would want to get all the facts and information and be open to others' opinions and beliefs. I guess not.
