1) I have many responders to my survey. I received a couple of messages
rejecting what I did, that is not Scouting. You ask yourself what came
about in this trail? Racism? Abuse? Ext. As a group in Scouting, we
should reflect on what the National surveys have said. Majority of the
whites feel he is guilty and the majority of the African-Americans feel he
is not guilty. As a group and as young scouts going into a world of racism,
we need to reflect on issue of sexism, racism, etc. That is what my class
is doing and I feel that people that asked for results or complied with me,
is knowing what my object is. I didn't want a big issue on Scouts-L on the
OJ Trail. My survey has nothing to do with the OJ trial. Some need to use
some critical think skills, not just concrete skill (what you see is what
you get) because life is not like that. I'm not even coming close on
dealing with OJ, etc.
Who has ethnic and action should see their is a section that can fit into
2) CAMP SCHOOL - Can some people calm down. I made a mistake in saying
nation. I feel that their are Scouts that cannot take a mistake. For all
the people that "Griped" about my mistake, sorry. Thanks to who all calmly
pointed out my mistake.
People that wrote to me very negatively, I hope you are not like that with
your Scouts. WE ALL DO MAKE MISTAKES!
