A friendly word to all the well meaning who are passionate about their commitments and beliefs.
If all black people started eating better, majoring in STEM, voting in every election, building strong families, opening businesses, travelling abroad, investing — there would still be problems. Because to be human is to face challenges. Remember that rain? It’s still falling on the just and the unjust alike.
No one solution will move us forward. Strength in diversity.
P.S. The corollary? Castigating people for what they believe (Libertarian) or who they are (LGBTQ, anyone? ) is DOA.
