Recently there has been an "awakening" of European-Americans pertinent to pernicious racism in the United States; the collective 400-year slumber is no more. I can only hope that they are not sleepwalking. Whatever the case, it is a "teachable moment" for people like me to enhance that awakening and I am here to report for duty with my childhood pal Kimba. In the early '70s, Kimba was one of my favorite cartoons. Like all cartoons, Kimba had a theme song. Here are the lyrics to "Kimba, the White Lion":

Who lives down in deepest, darkest Africa?

Who's the one who brought the jungle fame?

Who's the king of animals in Africa?

Kimba, the White Lion is his name.

When we get in trouble and we're in a fight

Who's the one who just won't turn and run?

Who believes in doing good and doing right?

Kimba, the White Lion is the one.

He's the greatest leader there's no doubt of it,

He's the one we count on night and day.

When there's danger, he can get us out of it,

Kimba, the White Lion, leads the way.
