Racism is alive and well and living in the USA. If you don’t believe that, consider these points:
• I believe that there has never been a Democratic president who has been hounded and berated so intensely by the opposition as presently. The white conservatives are out for blood from this first black man to be commander in chief, and this is not just over ideologies.
Never miss a local story.
• Look at the recent wave of white-cop-on-unarmed-black-male attacks, often ending in death of the black male. To wit: Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Walter Scott and even 12-year-old Tamir Rice.
Yes, we do have war zones in many cities, but let’s not be so complacent as to allow so much collateral damage to occur.
As a result, I am becoming more ashamed of my own Caucasian race. Set a good example for the rest of the world, please.
