Oh look, a soap box. Think I'll stand on it.
Something to say ? Don't mind if I do.
According to every history class I've taken, with no deviation, humanity began in the Mesopotamian (Tigris and Euphrates) River Valley, also known as the Cradle of Civilization, which is located in Iraq mostly, but also parts of Iran. Point being... we started in the Middle East. So maybe we could show a little more humility when we talk about black and brown people of color from the region. We are literally each others' family.
Besides... we have our own militias of religious zealots wielding AR-15's, and they're staging a coup to overturn the results of a Democratic Election. Meanwhile, their leader sues the people who voted him out, all the while encouraging said militias to spread chaos and lawlessness. They are destroying the foundations of the country they espouse to love.
After winning the nomination, Joe Biden began building a platform inclusive of the ideas and policies of his fellow running mates. Seeking common ground, he announced the course of action he would take to heal and rectify systemic social injustices: instituting a renewed social contract, gathering with civil rights leaders of embattled minority communities, and encouraging peaceful resolutions to the most pressing inequities of our time.
So it comes down to this. How is true, peaceful reconciliation achieved with a greater meaning and in our social construct ? Do we continue the advancement of a civil war among ourselves, in the name of law and order ? Or do we take a good, hard look at ourselves and promise to work toward real solutions ?
The choice is ours.
