We can displace
The idea of race
By taking time
That divide us.
There are many ways that the human race can be divided into categories. Skin color may be the most illogical one.
Freedom of speech includes the right to talk about the cruelty and brutality of slavery and Jim Crow even though hard hearts don’t want to hear about it. Regardless of our skin color, it would be good if all Americans knew the fuller story of our American history.
The history of slavery is an example of how people can fool themselves into to thinking that barbaric cruelty and brutality are justifiable. To heal our nation’s racial wounds we need a more open understanding of our history. This can help.
