After a year filled with events that have forever changed history and how we move forward as a country, it’s time to take a hard look at where we are when it comes to race relations.
There’s been a lot of events that have happened in the past year that are forcing us to have some serious discussions that, as a country, we may have been avoiding. Just recently, President Biden gave a speech at the location of the Tulsa Massacre which happened 100 years ago and he told us that it’s something we should never forget, but there was only one problem… I had never even heard of the Tulsa Massacre!
How could this be? This was a terrible event. This seemed like a no brainer to talk about in school! Why was this being overlooked? What else isn’t being discussed?
I don’t believe that we are a racist country and I know that we have come a long way, but I also know that we can’t fix anything if we aren’t talking about it.
I knew it was time we had some uncomfortable conversations, so I talked with the San Diego Branch President of the NAACP, Francine Maxwell about where we are as a country when it comes to race relations.
