Bob Dylan. Hurricane. Thurgood Marshall. Racism then and now and still!

October 15, 2018

I was listening to Bob Dylan’s Hurricane the other day.

So I looked up the story on Wikipedia…Rubin Carter…20 years in prison for a crime that he did NOT commit.

We don’t always do so well with “and justice for all.” Racism triumphs over and over and over…

No matter that LBJ worked hard to get the Civil Rights Legislation passed back in 1964 and 1965. No matter that Barack Obama was President for 2 terms.

The day before listening to Bobby sing Hurricane… Tom and I watched the 2017 movie Marshall about Thurgood Marshall and his 1940 case in Bridgeport, CT.

Such sadness and anger about racism. Such admiration for those who fought and fight and will fight. Forever.
