    Case Western Reserve called Appreciative Inquiry.

    I looked it up and thought their theories rang true.  We have to start from a place of shared accomplishment and then tackle the next obstacle or problem.  Our media seem to lead us in the opposite direction unfortunately.

      I think about how the media has shaped our perceptions of black people.  Barack Obama is a shock to the Fox folks because he's a smart, savvy, charming, well-educated family man with serious skills on many fronts.  They only know black men as wife-beaters, gang-bangers, or arrogant hip-hoppers.  Or silly old guys who have been beaten into submission by life in these United States.  That's the media influence, and its certainly not just the news media.  

      I'm not looking for a love that will lift me up and carry me away. A love that will stroll alongside and make a few amusing comments will suffice.
