I think Black people would not be going through all of this had we not been separated from our language, culture, and spiritual orientations. All of this divisiveness, confusion, and chaos is just yet another consequence of our being assimilated into this culture. And it's truly depressing. My relationship with my sister, ruined, because of religious differences, but more importantly, her unwillingness to realize that what she believes are NOT universal beliefs.

The short term effect is a curtailing of civil liberties (increasing over time), ignoring of pressing social issues here at home, a disaster for the economy, simmering anger amoung portions of the population against the government (I'm recalling early polls that said that Americans were willing to lose several hundreds of soldiers, but not a thousand, which we will likely surpass in a couple of years), and an expansion of the American Empire worldwide.
