Usually random links to stuff I think is interesting, politically, culturally and morally. Sometimes I actually write some things, but not as often as I'd like.
Ryan,I live in what some say is the most racially divided city in America (Memphis-This also happens to be the place where MLK was assassinated). I have lived here three years. It took about a year for me to begin picking up on "insider" language. This language is racially driven but is clothed around topics of real estate, economics or school systems. To put it bluntly, the good schools, good housing and good jobs exist in the "white" areas of town. We have a long way to go in Memphis. I am glad we worship a God who shows no favoritism!! Ian
The new day I referred to was a of the technological variety, not racial equality. Recently I observed instances of racial insensitivity that hit very close to home. Ironically, my own childhood in racially diverse suburbs of LA has left me ignorant of the painful wounds of racism that are a continuing part of a sinful world.
