It has been 51 years since the Selma-to-Montgomery civil rights march of 1965. That (Bloody Sunday) was one of the turning points in the civil rights movement because TV captured the sheer brutality of white rule in the South. So after 5 decades have we achieved racial equality in the South, or anywhere else in America for that matter? Hardly! Not even close!!
Over the years I have come to realize that racial injustice is at the center of virtually all of our American societal challenges. If we were to choose to achieve racial equality (both in law and in life) we could easily manage and/or eliminate nearly all our internal domestic problems.
