You have a RIGHT to be angry about this one, Mr. President
What the Court did today was evil. It's an attack not only on all you believe, but all that brought you to the office you now hold. It's about delegitimizing not only you presidency, but your life and our shared reality itself
)Right, their "shared reality" of being a victim today just like in the 1960's or even back to the time of slavery. Their made up "reality".
You have an obligation to look back AND forward now...you need to rage about this...you need to speak with all the anger, grief and fear of those whose lives and struggles were disrespected by this Klan Kourt
This is NO time to be even tempered.
This is the time for you to call for a Voting Rights Amendment, to make sure that nothing like the past can ever recur...and that all that Dr. King, Medgar Evers, and "thousands more whose names we'll never know", as Phil Ochs once sang, will not be lost forever in the mists of time.
You stand on the shoulders of giants, Mr. President. Now, you must BE a giant yourself.
