In a recent poll, 100% of my contacts and close friends said that leaders should be stewards and listeners. Participants were asked to respond to the following statement:
"When a community is faced with difficult decisions, that community's leaders should honor their positions of power by working to appease majorities within that community while educating strongly about and advocating for its minority members."
On a related note, 100% concurred that this applies especially to situations in which the majority group has made clear promises to protect and advocate for the minority.
A follow-up question was asked: "If you were a member or otherwise affiliated with a group that brokered its success on the backs of others, would you maintain your allegiance?"
Preliminary results point to No.
