We should not ask a select few to speak and act on behalf of the entire group. Ever wonder why folks like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson so often step forward as spokespeople for the entire African-American population? I sure do, and I always want to know where the Official White Spokespeople are (hint: there are none).
Perhaps one of the greatest failures of the diversity push of recent years is the failure to realize that diversity exists within each group. That is what really may prevent us coming together where unity is needed.
