Voltaire — To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize
That may be true, but reparations for slavery are back.There's legislation pending in Congress, and I wouldn't be surprised if we see hearings in Washington within a few months.
Hopefully, the hearings will go nowhere.
I hope the hearings will lead to a serious discussion about the ways in which most Americans misunderstand the role of slavery and the slave trade in our nation's history and the present day.Only when we have a complete and balanced picture of our shared history will we be able to move forward as one people.
The problem is that we are not one people.
I see. That sounds ominous.I think last night proved that a majority of Americans, at least, believe that we are "one nation, one people."
