I Still Believe
It’s been 400 years. Through wars. Civil rights activism & court battles. Fits & starts towards a more equitable society. We strive towards a more perfect union. But, this is today in America, where our corporations challenge equal access for all — Comcast challenging civil rights laws.
And this is America’s Ellis Island 2.0 — where our Supreme Court is weighing whether 800,000 people will be kicked out of America, because a racist president seeks to undo every policy America’s first Black president enacted — especially those that promised a more just & equitable America. And this is America’s White House, a place where defenders of white nationalism are welcome. Who would have thought that hate has a home here — again? Some might say it’s never left; but, this is a whole new level of power and hate on the main stage.
This land is our land. We have overcome so many obstacles in this place and the world has watched it all, because a city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden (Matt 5:14). I still believe we (justice seekers; freedom fighters; truth lovers; democracy defenders; eradicate racism proponents) will win. But, right now, victory doesn’t seem to be possible. But, I STILL because to not believe is certain defeat. Call your elected officials and demand a civil rights investigation against this modern day version of apartheid in America — 202–224–3121.
