American Experiment

“America is an idea” ~ Bono

 

America is a great idea. It’s an idea full of hope. It’s an idea that speaks freedom, shouts equality and invites peoples from all over the world to pursue happiness HERE…

 

It was and is a great idea that was flawed from inception. We keep working on it…and every time we take two steps closer to realizing the ideals written in our foundational documents, we get dragged three steps back by those who benefit from the status quo.

 

In this category, we discuss the ebbs and flows, tragedies and triumphs of the great American Experiment. Because even as a new generation leads the charge to change the racism, sexism and violence rooted at our foundation, we all have to understand our roles and do our part.

This year has provided 2020 vision...some clarity about the state of the United States…for those who would see.

The Republicans, in particular the evangelical, religious right segment, have confounded many observers with their support of someone who is a walking, talking contradiction of what they claim to believe. But apparently, their support has been about the achievement of their long-term judicial vision...by any means necessary.  

Many descendants of those who were enslaved in countries along the Atlantic Slave Trade have white ancestry. Does that make them less Black?
