Today, I’m going to be a broken record. Pardon me for doing so.
I’m sitting in Cosi. Almost everyone who works here is either Hispanic or African-American.
Nearly all the customers are white.
I recently rented a car in Atlanta. Everyone working behind the counter was African-American.
Everyone renting the cars were white.
We live near a Friendly’s. All the suburban mothers take their kids there for dinner and ice cream. Those suburbanites are 99% white.
The employees are nearly all African-American.
We’re told that everything is even. People are against Affirmative Action programs because, in the year 2010, what should count is merit, and merit alone. All things are equal. Everyone has a fair shot. Blah … blah … blah.
It’s simply not true.
I love this country, and I believe in this country. But I question this country.
You probably should, too.
