Historic Biases of Race and Racism to be Addressed in Real Time

There is a current tag line that reflects the historic biases of race and racism that have their roots in 17th century colonialism in America that says, ”The system is not broken.  It was built this way.  These biases, both implied and overt, are the historic threads woven into the fabric of racism, blanketing and suffocating our society with a heavy and dense darkness, that are comprised of the time-tested characteristics of supremacy and exploitation.  The real time opportunity before us is to enter into the honest and transparent conversations regarding racial biases and how supremacy and exploitation have poisoned the well from which we all drink. The question before us is:  who will gather the table of goodwill participants and partners to enter into these soul-revealing conversations designed to move the community to the implementation of action steps to bring justice, fairness, and equality to our society and help usher in the Beloved Community envisioned by the ancients and expressed by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr?
