WHAT TO DO....6/19/23

Today is Juneteenth, a National Holiday established by Congress just 2 years ago to commemorate the freedom of 250,000 slaves in Galveston, Texas.

Sadly, it took over 2 years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation for the news to reach them.

That was just the beginning, and although this country has come a long way toward righting the wrongs of our treatment of black people, racism persists.

And now it seems we’re going backwards.

A recent review of the Minneapolis Police Department found that it routinely targets Black communities 3 years after one of it’s officers murdered George Floyd, the Supreme Court is on the verge of abolishing Affirmative Action that has helped thousands of African Americans gain a foothold in the middle class, the teaching of black history is being banned from high schools and colleges, and academic scores for Black kids are declining.

Even the Brookings Institution, a revered, unbiased, non-profit public policy organization cannot come up with the fixes required for full equality.

If they can’t, I’m wondering who can.
