How do we make the world a better place? Hint: It has to do with loving your neighbor. This photo was taken several months ago when I attended a banquet hosted by “Move on Up”, an organization for the promotion of “black conservatives”. I am grateful there are groups willing to stand up and offer some cultural counterbalance.
As a child growing up on the South side of Chicago, I don’t recall even noticing the differences between skin color. It was a non-issue. We judged our neighbors on how well they could play “Old Maid”, “Kick the Can” or “King of the Hill”. I don’t remember any riots or being afraid to walk down the street.
