Land of the free, hah!

This is monstrous. If America treated Black citizens the same as all American citizens, it would be a happier, healthier, more prosperous land.

Instead, by spending a hundred and fifty years trying to keep the former slaves in their former place we have a land of injustice and division.

I have never seen a place where skin colour or cultural background was any indicator of intelligence, diligence, creativity, honesty, or anybloodything else except appearance.

If America accepted and treated all citizens alike - regardless of race or gender or sexual orientation - then more people would reach their full potential.

But no. And so we see the current land of division, injustice, chaos and hatred.

You'd think America, born in rebellion against injustice, would be aware of the existential threat.
