-- -- mystifying -- it's absolutely mystifying.
Sensitivity training is supposed to be a feedback loop it's supposed to actively involved people.
In learning how to put yourself in someone else to choose what he's doing the dictating in what he's doing its lecturing.
It's so alien to what really says -- hit activity training kids.
And how it affects experience.
Because sensitivity training is more than words it's also.
Its experience and in sensitivity training by definition is to open one's mind rather at supposedly.
That's the stuff if indoctrination I have never and I had some familiar with sensitive -- -- -- actually.

Was all about maybe that would have helped him in the sensitivity training.
Or maybe he could have taken into account the fact that this is the only nation on the whole -- -- in which -- That is ever permitted.
Even consider -- -- making eleven million people who -- it illegal or won't citizens of the United States.
Absolutely it was it was -- and listen our country has been built on inclusion not exclusion you know -- that's it does this is because so.
Part of the sensitivity training -- Think might be that we need to kind of looked -- their consciousness about our values absolutely maybe point out that 300000.
Died to free the slaves or -- no other country on her own group.
