I Don’t Know About You, but I’m Still Angry
Social media continues to highlight new situations and reveals some we hadn’t known about when they occurred. Nothing has changed. The new Congress is in session and we’ve already had a good look at their madness. As I travel and experience other cultures it never ceases to amaze me how troubled the industrial nations are as it relates to equity issues. We have the nerve to criticize others, however draconian they might be, and we have yet to handle our own sins.
Public executions, beheadings, and other grotesque consequences are barbaric. Yes. Historically unequal educational, judicial, and health systems that destroy individuals and families every day are pretty barbaric too, in my opinion. The war against women, turning back the clock on the gains made, are all as disrespectful and amoral as what we criticize in other societies.
The Supreme Court is allowing elections to be bought, the Congress is gerrymandering and decimating voting rights, women’s rights,threatening promises made to Americans decades ago. Have you thought about where this is heading? I have. If we don’t do better in the next elections, if we don’t hold politicians, police, banks, businesses, educators, parents, ministers and ourselves accountable, we will reap what we sow. Apartheid. Think about it.
