Via Cry and Howl
Going back to the events of 9/11/2001 it seemed America came together in a very decisive way. The vast majority of the American people wanted to “get even” with those who perpetrated the tragic events of that day. Americans became more than willing to go to war and enact revenge for the 3,000 American deaths and the destruction within the homeland. Racism wasn’t even a factor during the eight Bush years. I don’t remember one incident of national outrage over any racially based crime since 2000, when G.W. Bush took office. Oddly, with the first Mulatto acting as president the past five years, racism has been at the forefront of the news every day.
The “post racial” president has been anything but. Since even before Obama took office we’ve seen every “race hustler” from Al Sharpton to Charlie Rangel, to Jesse Jackson, crawl out of their holes to re-energize the racial divide of the 1960′s.
Regardless of if we think 9/11/2001 was an “inside job” or just some guy in a cave in Afghanistan with a cell phone coordinating the events of that day, Americans came together; terrorism had awaken the “sleeping giant”. Anyone who has been awake during the last 13 years can see what those in our government have done with this new “war on terror”. After thousands of Americans sacrificed their lives on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan (or should I say the powers within our government sacrificed those lives for some condition known as “the greater good”) are we more united as a nation? Are we safer within the homeland? Within the last five years, actually a little longer, America has been in a rapid moral decline and the racial divide is something not seen since the 1960′s.
