The heart of what troubles the USA is the subject of HCR's commentary for today. We recently had the temerity to finally cut off our military presence in Afghanistan, but we have not been able to attain the objectives on why the Union soldiers defeated the Confederates. The Civil War never ended. The Jim Crow Party (formerly known as the Republicans), has its fingerprints all over any political agenda to preserve White Supremacy. Racism is the gut issue that divides us. Critical Race Theory is NOT a public policy, but an effort to make plain the what and how of what Racism is, and how it has infected (affected?) our lives. Those who adamantly defy it being "taught" or talked about are Confederate soldiers intent on preventing anyone from understanding the motivation and how it has become a part of our daily lives. Jim Crow Babies are intent on the preservation of Ignorance. The creation of public policies from understanding the subject matter that scares the bejesus out of the Jim Crow Party.
Three things to ponder for today:
- Going to church doesn't make you a Christian, any more than standing in a garage makes you a car.
- You're never too old to learn something stupid.
- I'm supposed to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder for me to find one now.
