Back to the Future

Go ahead, explain it away. Tell every African-American, tell every member of the King family, tell every member of the Kennedy family, tell every child that this is no big deal, that the days of hardcore, American, racism are ancient history. Tell them that the America that once assassinated it’s leaders who dared to think differently is the America of yesterday. Better yet, talk about something else. Run to distraction. It works every time. OR, stand up and call it what it is. Face the fear that is tearing us apart, and let it pass through us until it is behind us where we will leave it once and for all. We are all afraid – whites, blacks, women, men, people of all colors – of what will happen to the America we know if we allow it to redefine itself, but if we continue to allow fear to set our coarse, it will eventually destroy our America. Is this what any of us want?

    time here just lurking and reading, but today for some reason I just felt compelled to say this.
