Fixing America's Racial Problems

Our nation has improved in handling and accepting different races. However race still does matter as to how someone is treated by society. Much of the discourse over race has to do with results, or lack of results, relating to justice and equality.

Since the 1960's this country dedicated a lot of resources to eradicate racism. Progress can be acknowledged, but we have not eliminated racism. This is today's frustration on the part of both white and black citizens.

Whites, as a group, feel enough is enough. We have thrown resources at fixing the problem but it still lingers. Blacks still get up every morning living in inferior neighborhoods and sending their children to inferior schools and they want change.

Now that the world has recovered from World War II its harder for us as a nation to remain “King” of the world. We see our kingdom slipping in stature and many whites are thinking: "enough is enough for we poured billions of dollars into trying to lift blacks out of poverty and despair and they squandered the resources." We effectively played Pontius Pilate washing away our guilt.

In the case of Trump and Bannon they "split" to try and divert attention that they schemed to take over the government. In the present con, Trump and Bannon temporarily won,  However, as Yogi Berra, the great deceased catcher of the New York Yankees once said, "It ain't over till it's over."

This feud is nothing more than an attempt to throw us off the track. The good news is Trump has no more that 12 months remaining in the White house. ...
