“When you’re accustomed to privilege, equality feels like oppression.”
It appears to me that the issues in the community are on the agenda for discussion but they are not on the program and tables of priority when it is time to make changes within our broken system.
My mother used to say “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. The system is broke. It has been broken for years. How about over 500 years of brokenness covered in a word called privilege.
Is it possible to clean up and restore over 500 years of blood, sweat and tears?
The invisible barrier that once was, is now painted with human blood. Anything that is divided can be attacked and threatened.
Wars are won with strategy.
Wars are won with unity.
Wars are won with courage.
Wars are won when the ones being attacked realize they have the power.
Wars are actually won, when the love for what you believe in is stronger than the fear you are facing.
