A RE-EDUCATION, WHO ARE THE AMERICANS OF AFRICAN DESCENT DATING BACK TO BEFORE THE PILGRIMS? WHAT SACRIFICES, CHALLENGES, AND CONTRIBUTIONS DATING BACK TO 1619 LEAD TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF THIS NATION AS WE KNOW IT.
A UNITED NATION CAN TOGETHER ACHIEVE GREATNESS, FOR DIVIDED WE SHALL SURELY FALL. TOGETHER THE PEOPLE OF THIS NATION: HAVE UNITED AGAIN GREED, CORRUPTION, AND AUTHORITARIAN TYPE LEADERSHIP, AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO.
THE DISPARITIES IN WEALTH, EMPLOYMENT, HOUSING, EDUCATION, AND JUSTICE ARE DESTROYING OUR BELIEF IN AMERICA AS A GREAT NATION. WITH AN INTEREST AND FOCUS, WE CAN IRRATICATE THE BAD SEEDS AND CONTINUE OUR JOURNEY TOWARDS GREATNESS.
THOSE IN THE FRINGES, ON THE RIGHT AND THOSE ON THE LEFT, DESERVE TO BE HEARD. AMERICA IS DIVERSE ON OPINION, ATTITUDE, AND BEHAVIOR. OUR INDIVIDUALITY MAKES US UNIQUE, BUT WE MUST REMAIN UNITED ON THE THINGS THAT MATTER AND NOT SEE EACH OTHER AS THE ENEMY. THE ENEMY IS A SYSTEM THAT REWARDS THE CORRUPT, THE RICH, AND POWERFUL. THESE INDIVIDUALS DO NOT REPRESENT THE SENTIMENT OF THE PEOPLE OR AN INTEREST IN MAINTAINING A DEMOCRACY.
HISTORY UNITES US, WHILE RACISM, BIGOTRY, AND WHITE SUPREMACY ARE THE EVILS THAT DIVIDE US. THE PRINCIPLES AS STATED IN THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE BINDS US AS AMERICANS, UNDER ONE DREAM AND GOAL, WHICH HAS YET TO BE FULLY REALIZED.
A new dawn is upon us, a 21st Century reconstruction period. The people's demands can and will move this nation closer to justice, equity, and liberty for all. We have voiced our intentions to do so, and we must continue to move forward as our ancestors before us. The season of greed, corruption, power at any cost, and a shameful justice system must end. Leaders of integrity with intelligence, compassion, confidence, strong positive leadership skills, and respect and love for the principles on which this nation was founded, must be the basis of any—individual running for office and any politician seeking to stay in office. Individual merit should be the character traits by which men and women are held accountable, rather than the color of one's skin, privilege, or national heritage.
