An anonymous reader has found him or herself disappointed in me and this blog. I initially shrugged this comment off because I am under no compulsion to please anyone with my brainspew and honestly the comment was hardly scathing enough to illicit anger or bemusement. I then read a comment from a fellow blogger who does not share my politics but shared that the only fruit that I can expect to come from my carping to black folks is more of the same (carping that is). That agonizing over our social ills and berating them is not productive. So I am humbled and offering my deepest and sincerest apology to my readers for not being a part of the solution. I am going to spend some time trying to figure out what it is that I can do to be a part of the solution.
Then I read an op-ed written by Shelby Steele this morning and he writes: "But true reform, like the civil rights victories of the '60s, never happens until people become exhausted with their suffering."
So now I'm in a quandary..... But, I'll figure something out. There has to be someway to reach the my brothers and sister in a positive and productive way. Stay tuned.
