The Widdershins

Archive for January 19th, 2015

Good Monday, Widdershins. I need to make this a short post today, but I hope I can get enough in to inspire thought and discussion.

As we celebrate Martin Luther King Day every year, and mourn the passing of this activist and visionary giant, I know I always think about whether or not we have achieved his dream of men and women being judged not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. Well, we did elect, and re-elect, a black President, which means that in some ways, we are making progress. (I cannot imagine this having happened in MLK’s day; can you?)  As we have seen from the recent spotlight on cop killings of African-Americans, however, there is far more work to be done in our law enforcement community, which is lagging behind civilians in terms of racial attitudes and understanding.

Below are links to some telling statistics about racism and how it deeply affects the way we, as a society, enforce the law. If I were in charge of trying to improve the lives of black people everywhere, this is where I’d start.
