This Isn’t My Father’s Generation

“Pit race against race, religion against religion, prejudice against prejudice. Divide and conquer! We must not let that happen here.”
― Eleanor Roosevelt

There is a tug-of-war happening around the world sparked by a video showing a cop with his knee on a black man’s neck.  In eight minutes, forty-six seconds George Floyd was dead.

On one end of the rope is some white people who are trying to pull the world backwards into one where they are superior.  One white man especially doesn’t want America to move forward, he would rather go back to a time where Black people didn’t have any rights, an America where Black people were considered less than a human.

Now on the other end is a new generation tugging to bring the world into a world where all men are truly equal, no more, no less.  These are the ones you see on the news channels marching in the streets all around the globe.  Signs with “Black Lives Matter”, “Defund the Police”.  In the multitudes there is a wide spectrum of people. Young, old, white, black, gay, straight, transgender, etc., are on a grass roots mission to bring the world into the twenty-one century.

So dear reader, if 2020 ends without any progress then all those voices crying for justice has been in vain!
