  • Heroism In The Face Of Racism [Video]

By Fred Kofman
Philosopher and Vice President at Linkedin

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Martin Luther King Jr.

“Healing the universe is an inside job.”
Fritjof Capra

John was “targeted.” Many years ago, without explanation, his boss made it clear to him that he “wouldn’t progress” in his job. When he complained to his employer, he was shunned. Ultimately, he left.

John is African, a black foreigner. That seems to be the only reasonable explanation for this evil story–although I can’t bring myself to call scourges such as racism and xenophobia “reasonable.”

John survived and moved on, but after all these years he’s still carrying the pain and the fear from this episode. Yet, with amazing courage, he doesn’t see himself as a victim. He comes to the coaching conversation with one of the most heroic attitudes I’ve ever seen.

In the following video, you can see John heal an old wound, finding his heroic and compassionate spirit along the way. It is one of the joys of my life to have supported him in his quest for wholeness.
