It is impossible to imagine that we
stop fighting to ameliorate the evils of racism,
even if the struggle is long, difficult and complex.

Or it was. Until a week or so ago.

I remember when I was in third grade (1954? 55?)
I quit school...just walked out and went home
because they would not admit a black girl...
I was and continue to be outraged by racism.

No comments:

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
