The Gazette recently identified racial and economic issues confronting America, but as far back as the 1960s, reportage demonstrated racial and economic disparities. As reported then, we had two Americas, but today we live in a multiple-layered country that has not moved rapidly enough in the right directions. We have a black president, but indicators demonstrate that race and class matter in virtually all aspects of American life. How much more reporting will it take to achieve equality?
Racial and economic disparities still continue to impact all aspects of life to varying degrees.
Our institutions have failed to achieve the degrees of recovery these last few decades afforded. Political, religious and social institutions have even exacerbated some disparities/inequalities. The polarization/gulf between the two political parties is as great as any time in my lifetime.
So-called “Christians’” intolerance should be intolerant to any who profess being reborn. The journalism profession was bought by corporate entities, so their reporting skews reality to such degrees that many accept racial and economic disparities because they believe all is well and on the right course.
What can be done? After our airwaves and other aspects of media/Christianity are reclaimed, we can promote citizen politicians who will not make careers and gain financial security at our expense.
