The objective of this experiment is to observe the effect of not making assumptions.
The phenomenon I have observed is that I appear to make a lot of assumptions.
Most people make assumptions about a lot of things. For example, you are reading this and while reading this you are making assumptions about what I mean by the words that are written. Neither you nor I have read and memorized all of the word in the dictionary for every word that is written here nor every word that is being read that is written here.
Under the SYSTEM of racism (white supremacy) mis-understanding is the standard for people without a code. When it comes to the topic or subject of race non-white people, because we don't have a code, do not understand what is going on around us.
The mechanics for not making assumptions is, if you want to know something, you'll have to ask questions. Not only will you have to ask questions you'll have to ask questions of the originator of whatever speech that was made and/or whatever deed that was done in order to get the truth about it.
Go an hour making as many assumptions as you possibly can. Count the number of assumptions you make and write the number of assumptions you make down on a piece of paper.
How many questions did you ask while communicating with people while making as many sssumptions as you possibly can?
Go an hour without making any assumptions. Count the number of assumptions you make while attempting not to make any and write the number of assumptions you make down on a piece of paper.
How many questions did you ask while communicating with people without making any assumptions?
While communicating with people and minimizing the number of assumptions you make you will also minimize the number of statements you make.
What is the reason YOU were born into a SYSTEM of INJUSTICE if not to replace it with a SYSTEM of JUSTICE?
