One of the biggest issues facing the country right now is racism. It’s unfortunate that this plague of a concept had been eased by most accounts for years but that easing was short lived. It has seen a resurgence in the last few years during a time when America was supposed to have experienced an awakening by electing and reelecting its first black President.
When I was a child, my father warned me to never repeat what I read as a headline in the grocery store checkout line. He told me about tabloids, how they took a smidgen of truth and manipulated it to form a shocking headline attached to a misleading story in order to sell more magazines. The same thing is happening today but for much more nefarious reasons.
