The Sunday editorial, “Racial unrest again has U.S. on edge” clearly shows that the road to any solution to racial unrest is two-way, especially in the tragic Ferguson, Mo., event.
For generations, political, social and economic efforts have attempted to level the playing field, achieve fairness and ensure opportunity through housing, food, pre-natal care, ob-gyn, education, after-school care, job opportunities, market access and more.
Minorities in America were given a hand up, then a handout, and now “unarmed teen-age youths” demand that others hand over more.
My question is: In this exquisite post-racial society in which we luxuriate, where does the entitlement and arrogance end and the responsibility and maturity begin?
Never miss a local story.
