Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, Nightmare Jobs Edition 2020. Women's History Month

UPDATE for Women's History Month. Just as PEOPLE are Individuals, not all jobs are created equal but they should be. I've worked for some companies that were a joy & some that were just pure hell on earth.

When we study the past it is to improve our present & future, to make our lives better. There is actually a historic precedent in Hollywood of WOMEN bridging the gap in Race Relations, yet daily headlines in the "news" imply that women are the ones "racing."

No, we're not.

The classic 1960's Romantic Comedy "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner," with Katherine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy, Sidney Poitier & Katherine Houghton, highlights the follies & foibles of a Bi-Racial couple as a young Black Man asks his White Girlfriend's father for his daughter's hand in marriage.

The WOMEN were the HEROES striving for Racial Equality, yet now, in the year 2020 when we turn on the TV it seems to be Open Season on Women.

When the viewing public turns on the TV, whether we realize it or not we are learning.

What are we learning?

What are we being taught? That we are living vicariously through the lives of actors???

Are we "Coming to dinner?" or are we "Going to dinner?"

"Just say No. That's not right."

And while we're at it, can News Reporters STOP referring to Wednesday as "Hump Day???" It is NOT "Hump Day." It is Wednesday. WORDS MATTER.<
