I am an old fart so I remember the racial divide of the 50 & 60’s, not a good time to be an American. I also remember how close the races were becoming in the 70’s, which was the closest the two had become in many years. Then as quickly as it had began it started deteriorating in th Me generation of the 80’s.
Once again I see the races are close to a unity that has been missing and at the same time they are being pushed to segregate themselves along color lines. The media is doing all possible to widen the expanse—politics of the Dems are also helping—and then there is the American people, they are also helping separate the electorate along racial and gender lines.
it is just flipping SAD! There is a chance for the American people to face the question head on and find common ground but they will not at this point. White blue collars workers in the northeast are holding blacks responsible for their lack of work, when it is a non-caring government and administration that should be the bad guy.
The Dems, some of them, want this new race battle with the attempt to marginalize a message of hope. And thanks to their efforts the Dems are losing ground to the Repubs. And there is a possiblity that this divide will help defeat the Dems in November–yet again.
The outcome is becoming predictable–They will snatch defeat from the jaws of victory–yet again. Well done. at least they are consistent.
