“Irresponsible Bigotry”

Have you been in America lately? Like anytime since Columbus set foot here, and set about enslaving the people already here?

Were you here in the’60’s? Did you think that much had changed?

And “responsible bigotry” was not that much of an improvement. It led to the current conditions.

The aim should be eliminating bigotry, but that would require something like South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation efforts. Which was noble, but didn’t fundamentally change matters, did it?

First we have to name our hidden wound. Then we have to claim it as our own.

Aye, there’s the rub.
