The Majority Feeling Like The Minority

  • Public
By Griot Admin 1650 days ago

In recent days with the browning of America and with Black and Brown people increasingly gaining political and financial success, some whites in America are experiencing a strange sensation. They are now experiencing some of what Blacks have experienced for centuries. A sense of possible disenfranchisement and helplessness.

But whites should not despair what they are seeing is just a leveling of the playing field where everone, Blacks, Whites, or whatever your ethninicity or race, all may one day have the same chance to succeed.

The election of Barack Obama, a black man may have brought out the best and the worst in us, all at the same time. It may ultimately be just what the country has needed for a long time, a cleansing and epiphany that will finally bring about a recognition that we are all in this together.
