We need to challenge and confront racism
DONALD L. HOPKINS | 11/21/2018, 6 a.m.
Why can’t we simply be humble and bold enough to engage in truth?
Fear, poverty and capitalism are used to harness control and build divisions among people, but offer no truth.
Truth is uncovering racism at all costs.
We need to deal with our government systems and laws that are components of racism. We need to take the Band-Aid off the sore and talk about racism.
We have many great institutions and educated people, but they don’t challenge and confront racism.
The time has come to put racism front and center, to uncover it and deal with it once and for all.
If we can be transparent and honest, we can reduce many of the fears and other components that perpetuate racism.
