It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever had to admit to myself. But it’s true . . . He just laughs it off as if I am nuts. I’m not laughing . . .
Somewhere along the way, I broke out, became my own man. Maybe one day as a country we’ll be able to put it all behind us? I hope very soon . . .
I know why I’m not prejudice . . . I grew up on the playground. There was no color there, just ball players. And I know I would gladly sacrifice myself for friends and they would for me . . .
I understand very well what Barack Obama way saying about the previous generation in his More Perfect Union Speech . . . I also understand what he was saying between the words . . . Older black men have a right to be a little bitter. So would you . . . But it’s also true that the older white generation was/is prejudice . . . They’ll never admit, people never ever find their own faults. Ever wonder why? I do all the time.
Thank the Lord for youth and the way they see the world. Change is in the wind and just maybe we’ll all be proud again . . . ?
