In order to avoid trivializing moral issues concerning mentoring, a specialized "strong" concept of a mentor is proposed that is based on the original model in Homer's 'Odyssey'. It is argued that mentorship embodies a highly personal and bonding relationship that comes as a free gift and is based on an affinity of some sort. It is further argued that morally such a relationship may be especially appropriate in a racial setting.
