Re: “Obama aims initiative at young minority men” (TNT, 2-28).
Our president just announced a new, well-intended program to address the needs of “young men of color.” What if a white president did the same for the exclusive benefit of white young men? Is it common sense to ignore the fact that all our youth – boys and girls – need and deserve this same type of attention?
The movie “Son of God” has just being released with the advice that it is not suitable for children 13 and under. Is it common sense to shelter our youth from the story of Jesus Christ? Is the fact of the crucifixion something that they are too young to be exposed to?
Common sense is not so common.
