The Picture Worth a Thousand Words

We will never be a post-racial America until those who enslaved human beings and sent them thousands of miles from home to be beaten and killed are no longer celebrated.

Until we no longer have the Confederate flag flying over state capitols and honored in state legislatures.

Until we no longer have military bases and government buildings named after Confederate generals.


Until we no longer have a Supreme Court of the United States willing to rule from their ivory (white) towers that there is no racial discrimination in America.
