Race in America, what a mess.

Ellen Finch,
San Jose, CA.

My heart breaks for those with skin of the “wrong” color who are treated so poorly in so many ways. And my heart breaks that so many people of the “right” color inflict it–whether it’s deliberate or simply from subconscious cultural bias. I thought we’d have made so much more progress with this mess by the time I reached my current age (I was 12 when King was shot).
