life in the hoods
We live in a world of hoods: Childhood. Parenthood. Motherhood. Fatherhood. Brotherhood. Sisterhood. Neighborhood. Manhood. Womanhood. Falsehood. Priesthood. Sainthood. Statehood. Nationhood. Unlikelihood. Victimhood. It is important to know that...
- most people live, mostly unquestioning, within some of these hoods;
- these hoods mean different things at different times in different places to different people;
- these hoods all possess unspoken assumptions we call common sense;
- those who challenge these unspoken assumptions are considered crazy or dangerous.
