Are We There Yet?
Can we criticize our own failed leadership - or must we protect those who have failed under the veil of racism?
Can we now hold ourselves to the standards to which we would hold others - or do we continue to lower the standards and make excuses because someone may happen to be Black?
Do we continue to elect officials because they are Black - or do we elect officials because they will serve us well?
If we've already lost hope in other institutions - is the lost hope in religious leadership the last straw?
Can we now just choose the best person instead of the best financed Black person?
Are we there yet?
