Does apologizing to a specific group of people for a rude comment change things?
In May a ball-player for the Toronto Blue Jays was forced/told to apologize to the LGBTQ community for a ‘slur’ he said during a base-ball game. When I first heard of this I did not understand why he was told to apologize. It seems to me that any person who is rude to another person should apologize because they were disrespectful. Secondly what purpose does it serve to apologize to a group of people, who may not have even been at the ball-game?
Is it that we’ve all become overly-sensitive in this world?
Is it that the owners of the baseball team are thinking of their financial bottom-line?
Is it because they’ve lost sight of the big-picture?
Are you wondering what the big-picture is?
It is the fact that respect needs to be shown to all people in the human race.
A question to consider is; when will we become more respectful to all people?
