We are Not as Far Along as You Might Think
As I read about some of the work that has been done and is being done to dismantle a racist system, I have been very surprised by some of the dates. For example, segregated proms ending in 2013. A fence between segregated cemeteries being removed July 15, 2020...yes, last Wednesday. There is work to be done. Work that people ARE DOING. As the mayor of Mineola, TX, stated after thanking everyone in attendance of the ceremony to watch the fence being taken down, "It's amazing what happens when people sit down and listen to each other."
