American Ideals and Values
America’s civil rights leaders have a problem. They can’t solve it because success is not an option. If they ever get what they want they will become relics, a part of history. That means no notoriety, no claim to political office, no fame, and no money.
When I think about what forgiveness means to America I can’t help but remember the long list of Obama pardons and commutations, including the 231 inmates who got lucky1 near the end of his presidency. The Justice Department put the numbers out for all to see.
A nationwide epidemic of sexual harassment is a scandal too good to be true. From all appearances the problem is rampant at the highest levels of our society and that means the hype is what counts even though it mocks this vulgar abuse of power.
