For those who "read the signs" in nature, this is an awesome time. There was a convergence of major events, both natural and national, the likes of which has not been seen in a long, long time.
All over this country, the myth of the Great White Society is turning into dust, and Republicans loathe to accept the reality that is being manifested right before their eyes.
I thought I would write a scathing indictment of White American and European bigotry against and hatred of non-white people. Then, when I looked closely, I saw a lot of “people of color” blocking my view of the Caucasians.

Amiri Baraka chilled my heart when he declared there's a "bridge of bones" on the sea floor, across the Atlantic Ocean, where as many as 30 million kidnapped Africans were tossed into the ocean every day during the Trans-Atlantic slave trade.
