America, it’s time we had that talk about racism. Specifically, I’m referring to the whitewashed version of history most of us learned in school. We can’t undo what was done, but we can–at a minimum–acknowledge the truth, a truth absent from too many assumptions made about the country we live in.
The veil surrounding the “Again” part of the current regime’s MAGA slogan has been lifted in some small ways by the media lately. These efforts deserve praise, even as too much news coverage has the effect of normalizing the worst actions occurring on the political stage.
