I’m on vacation. Reading today’s New York Times on line.
Two big themes: Marriage Equality and Racism.
I worry about the Supreme Court’s decision about marriage equality. (That’s what it is, equality!) And the Supreme Court “put an end” to racism decades ago. But “we the people” can’t seem to get it together.
The words in the NYT say it all…so much better than me:
- Editorial: A Landmark Gay Marriage Case at the Supreme Court
- Editorial: What Came Before Baltimore’s Riots
- Op-ed: Love, Marriage and Music
And the news articles, too:
I’m deeply sad for the United States. We simply cannot create social justice. We continue to struggle – our institutions, our governments, and our people – with social justice. So many human beings – whether in the U.S. or elsewhere – continue to fear those who are different. Too many human beings – everywhere – call on a god or goddess to claim righteousness.
I am so sad.
