Last week, I saw countless messages of merry Christmas and happy new year. People wishing each other prosperity, success, and lots of good cheer.

A child’s right of expressions of religion is protected but the child must prove he or she belongs to a religion.
Toppling statues and changing emblems will never change the institutionalized systematic dehumanization of Blacks. It requires action that will change the system from the core out. Yet are we ready mentally and philosophically? Between the devil and the blue sea.
