America struggles with itself in an existential tug-of-war. Freedom, civility, and common decency on one side. Idiocy, white supremacy, and sovereignty on the other. To make matters worse, we’ve got the King of Bankruptcy as our poor man’s Pied Piper, leading us into the depths of ruination nation. When I say America has a black heart, I mean that it has a dark side. I also mean that color has always been at the heart of our history. Lynching ropes choking off hopes when there shoulda been the full breath of brotherhood. Crosses burning on lawns when we shoulda had a far better grasp on the religion of benevolence.
