´ Is the Help really Helping? -
September 14, 2016

When we step in to fix something we have to periodically ask ourselves, if we are actually creating the benefit we intended to create. Political correctness was invented with the very noble and kind-hearted desire to stop racism. Unfortunately it has created a climate, where using one incorrect word can have severe consequences like getting fired. So to avoid these consequences people often don’t deeply engage with people from another ethnicity in order to avoid the severe consequences. This creates not less but more racism. So when we help someone or fix something we have to be open to evaluating our efforts.
