People want to believe that we live in a post-racial society because we have a black president. But that is far from the truth. I see more racial division, and the disparities between races have widened.
Here are just a few examples:
People quote the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. when it’s convenient for them. But one of King’s quotes should be used at all times: “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”
Racial discrimination and disparities are alive and well all around us, and “we the people” must rise above racial bigotry and come together for the betterment of the human race and future of our children.
