I’m going tell you what the solution is.

Do you get it yet?
I know you probably despise us. You’ve been told your entire life – by
your schools, your churches, and your heroes of sport, screen, and stage
– that there is no greater sin than racism. You wanted to be a good
person. Heck, you are a good person.
So you treated everyone with respect, no matter where they came from.
You figured everyone should have an opportunity. You believed in playing
by the rules. You believed in freedom. You believed in America. You
thought that what makes this country great is that everyone, from
whatever background, can make it together. You may have even voted for
Obama that first time, despite some policy disagreements, because you
really wanted to believe that race is irrelevant, that skin tone doesn’t
matter, that the only colors we need are Red, White, and Blue.
a conservative, maybe even a libertarian. But you don’t want to make
“arbitrary” distinctions between people. After all, we’re all children
of our Creator. So you gave Obama a chance.
