Racism

“...we must examine how anarchy is lying in wait to feed on our constitutional rights, and on our naiveté about our own vulnerability.”

"In an earlier blog I emphasized the importance of moral clarity for an effective protest. The case of George Floyd dripped with moral clarity — so much so that 78% of the country agreed that Derek Chauvin . . . should have been arrested immediately. However, such a national consensus and borderline unity was intolerable for the anarchists.  It was necessary for them to muddy the moral waters to accomplish their objectives. And so they began to divide us." - Carl Ellis

I question that assessment, but judging from the volume of strident voices around us, I think that the degree of tension and discontent arising from racial matters is perhaps greater than at any time in American history. There are many attempts to explain why this may be so, but one thing is clear, namely that we have a racial problem, and the solution appears more elusive as time goes one.
