This nation continues to refuse to face the fact that racism is baked into the DNA of the country. Starting with the 3/5s compromise and continuing with Dred Scott , Jim Crow laws, poll taxes, segregation, a bias exists in every day life. We, as a Nation, are way past the time to face it. James Baldwin said; “Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.”. If we have any hope of redemption, we need to face and cure it.
