Maybe we can address what we talk about when we talk about race in school?
Do students know anything about convict leasing? The roots of disenfranchisement laws? Stokely Charmichael? Ralph Abernathy? Anything written by MKL about poverty and war instead of race? The 1964 Democratic National Convention? Busing in Boston in the 80's? etc., etc., etc.....lynching, Ida B. Wells, the history of Parchman Penitentary....??
How many times do kids hear "I have a dream" versus other parts of the history of race in America?
redhot, I can see you feel strongly, but surely you will agree that Trump also has a problem with staying on topic and elevating the debate. Please don't follow his example and try to contribute to the conversation we are having.
Additionally, I came across a phrase today, "virtue signaling." Going off and showing righteous indignation is a hollow way to seem to be doing right.
I hope you are doing real good in the real world and not just signaling.
At least the U.S. has a set of values, backed by our founding documents and centuries of a government bound by legal procedure and democratic norms. I'd rather be in a hypocrite nation (welcome to the human race) than in a revaunchist, mercenary state with the blood of millions on its hands.
