About Ray Rose's recent post concerning whether it matters what attitudes
people hold, but rather what their behaviors are:

If few or none of us hold attitudes which abhor oppression based on category
(sex, race, handicap, sexual orientation, age, etc.), the behaviors which
embody those attitudes would most likely not be valued and therefore not
required. If we do not focus on attitude change, others will: racists,
sexists and all the others.
Behaviors *are* important, but attitudes are, too.
Social psychology has demonstrated that behaviors follow from attitudes and
attitudes follow from behaviors as well.
