What Happened to Our National Ideal? – That everyone is Created Equal – Those pushed into categories about to wake up. Black Activists In Chicago Make a Valid Point
Chicago Activists Unchained, Destroy Black Leadership – video by Rebel Pundit via UTube
At one time, during the 1950’s and 1960’s one knew there was deep-rooted racism, and that racism existed from the north to the south, west and southwest, east and northeast. There were those who wanted change, and those who fought for change, and those who saw the changes taking place. There were political party divides, and the Civil Rights Movement was the defining moment of the greatest generation in concert with the baby boomers.
Then power and greed and political corruption got the best of our combined leadership – black, white, Republican, and yes, especially Democrats. Watching everyone become pigeonholed by race or gender over the decades, while seeing opportunities disappear, has been a heartbreaking event. More so, perhaps, because there were those who believed that it was no longer necessary to concern oneself with those pockets of racists or sexists that we had evolved into a society that would not stand for one person being less than another – having equal opportunities.
Then politics stepped in and assured all of us that this cancer not only still existed it was prevalent, and then the Us vs. them began.
It needs to end, and perhaps, just perhaps with dedicated individuals looking about at the destruction of our great society, taking matters to heart and doing good work by calling out those corrupters, will bring enthusiasm to all of us to work as one society again. Call it idealism or something found in several documents, not least among them the one that guides our nation’s laws – the Constitution.
