Bravo on this essay. I’ll bet on Russian dominance before I allow myself to believe America will give up it’s racist caste systems and institutions. Born and raised in the South I have seen about as much racism as any one person can stand. I have embarked on a personal enrichment journey to physically study this nations ugly history. Just this weekend I visited Charleston’s planations, old forts, and cemeteries where Confederate and Union soldiers are burried with a new set of eyes. I also went to the Gullah festival to learn more about Harriet Tubman’s efforts freeing slaves here in my old home state.

“There is not a man on earth who would sacrifice more than I would, to relieve us from this heavy reproach [slavery] ... we have the wolf by the ear, and we can neither hold him, nor safely let him go. Justice is in one scale and self-preservation in the other.”
