Because I am Old

by Regis Boff

I have been at this racial shit for about sixty years now. What I know for sure is that black people are no different than anyone else. Their problem is they are sitting on a mountain of debris from which they can’t escape. Neither Mr. Trump nor Mrs. Clinton has addressed this in any original way. Neither has President Obama.
Our country fought a war in Europe and then rebuilt it all. We fought a war in Iraq and spent trillions trying unsuccessfully to repair it.
Some Americans need a fresh start. Some Americans.
Worrying ourselves sick over who will win the next election won’t cut it. I guarantee that neither one will fix the problem.
How do I know? Because I am old.
