“The Journey Towards Acceptance,” Ward Hines Story

In Uncategorized on December 1, 2009 at 4:17 pm

First, I thought it was intersting that a story about race was featured on the front page of Sports Monday.

Granted Ward Hines is a celebrity athlete, which is essential to his ability to build bridges of tolerance in a culture that values fame, but still.

Hines’ diplomacy was warm: he expressed his love for his mother’s and his heritage without justifying the unfair marginalization of Korean-born children of mixed races.

And they responded. Finally a face in the ground that stood out, just like they did.
