Reality of Racism
The problem with Racism in America is that we have never truly dealt with the skeletons under our feet. The millions of Black bodies murdered and mutilated that’s never been acknowledged or apologized for.
Consequently there are a subset of people, who’ve benefited in one form or another and refuse to see the truth, that is smacking them in the face. It could be from guilt or ignorance, either way it is a huge contributing factor to the underlying tension that is always just below the surface of our everyday existence.
Can we ever be truly United?
I deeply saddens me to know that we are still dealing or rather not dealing with this issue of Race and racism not only here in the United States, that let’s be honest we have never been truly united as evidence of the hundreds of years of persecution and prejudice of people of color.
I want to believe we as a nation will put this foolishness to rest in my lifetime.
I was very shocked to see an actual Black President elected. Trust I was holding my breath until the second term began. Literally waiting on the shoe to drop.
Sad but true…
At the end of the day, I’m ever hopeful the hearts and minds will change to be loving and accepting of others differences around the world. So until that day comes, let us show kindness and be the example daily of what we want to see manifest in our world.
