Racism in America: Why Can’t We Get Rid of It?

With the election of Barack Obama as President of the United States, many wanted to claim that racism in America had been defeated. We thought we had achieved something great. Blacks and Whites of good will were filled with pride. That pride brought us a sense of accomplishment. And we took time to relax and enjoy the victory.

The Confederate Flag and American Salvation

Watching the taping of The Daily Show from last night, I found myself inconsolable from sadness. I was crying for the state of our humanity and specifically for the human crisis in our Country.
