A recent survey of employers reveals most U.S. businesses seek applicants with intercultural communications skills. College grads who can operate across different cultures have a serious advantage.

It is wonderful that people from all walks of life come together to use social media for such good. The unity and generosity of hundreds of thousands of participants from different backgrounds has done even more than lead to donations of tens of millions of dollars to non-profit organizations in the name of ALS, it has raised awareness of this devastating condition.

Why do we have such a huge problem with talking about whatever it is that needs to be talked about in our relationships with our friends, family, church organizations, etc.? I see time and time again people who would rather avoid addressing issues, avoid facing the truth, and avoid being their most genuine selves, instead of being open and honest about how they are feeling.

The plight of the Black man

Last Saturday night, I went to see the new movie “Fruitvale Station.”

I cannot begin to tell you how powerful the story is. Michael B. Jordan (depicting Oscar Grant III) really captured what I call or consider the plight of the Black man. The main character was an African-American male who was killed by a policeman at the Fruitvale Bay Area Rapid Transit Station. Grant had some struggles in life and he definitely was not perfect. Grant had some previous run-ins with the law, but he was trying to get his life together. He was trying to stay on the right side of the law in efforts to stay out of jail and protect his family. What happened to Oscar Grant, being victimized and brutally murdered at the Fruitvale station, was unreasonable and simply uncalled for.
