What are we striving for as a people here in America? What do we realistically think we can achieve as a group here in this country? Is true equality a reality? Surely it's not "color blindness" - but what do we want? One could certainly make the argument that as the rich continue to exploit the poor, that poor whites will increasingly turn against blacks to express their frustration (link). So it is not far fetched to think that race relations might get worse at some point in the future. Surely things like affirmative action are defintely ripe to be excised from the American political landscape.
What is at the end of the rainbow for African America? Do we think we will ever generate the leverage to get America to grant us a homeland? Reparations? Will we get to the point where we will ever have equal access to the "American Dream"? Ever?
Are we really striving for something or are we on a treadmill - constantly moving but going nowhere? What are we doing? Where are we going?
What do you think?
