In recent weeks, I've been reading more than ever before about the history of how America has treated Black people. I wondered why Black people were singled out; it made no sense. Now I see why it made no sense. It wasn't accurate. I'm realizing that our country has so much white supremacy built into it. I find it disgusting, though I don't know what to do about it. The rhetoric I was raised on - just live a good life, be a good person - doesn't seem like enough anymore. Talking to my kids this morning, we agreed that America has never been great from a human rights perspective. Only by capitalist standards, and then only if you're a white man. Oh, it holds the promise of greatness and doesn't let on that the promise was never intended to be for everyone. I'm so disappointed.
