“You can no longer see or identify yourself
solely as a member of a tribe,
but as a citizen of a nation of one people
working toward a common purpose.”
Do you stand and stare at
a cultural/political landscape
that seems to have gone insane?
‘Why bother with a milkshake when
you could get some battery acid?’
Jo Brand's comment when speaking about
the current trend of throwing
milkshakes at those
whose political views
differ from yours.
We are at an unprecedented moment in America.
Though our nation has made great strides in fighting discrimination,
the voices of our fragmented society are becoming more and more strident.
In America today, every group feels under assault to some extent.
Whites and blacks, Latinos and Asians, men and women,
Christians, Jews, and Muslims, straight people and gay people, liberals and conservatives –
all feel their groups are being attacked, bullied, persecuted, discriminated against.
When everyone is screaming, no one is listening.
Now, Hollywood says the term X-MEN has become outdated since there are women in the group.
No longer should there be Men In Black ...
but People in Black.
Somewhere along the line,
common sense has become
not so common anymore.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
