Hi John,

Thank you so much for your thoughtful response. I have often thought the same things. White/Europeans tend to be upset by recalling the totality of their global reign, but it is what it is. There is no denying it. Like you, I think America needs 100 years of good women leading to repair much of the damage White men have done to humanity. I worry White women would pander to White men due to their proximity, possibly engaging in the same behavior White men did. White power is White power, so in the beginning I’d feel more comfortable with Black and Brown women leading because they would be leading from a different place than perhaps privileged White women.

In any event, I trust women now more than ever. Not all, just the ones who are addressing issues related to the humanity of all mankind, not just the White kind.
