One of the truths I have learned from my activism in the area of civil rights is the ability to evolve pass[sic] seeking racial parity and equity with the majority society . I now understand that it is critical to evolve beyond a sense of validation and affirmation . My maturation must take me to a place where I elevate my personhood and begin to become an architect to create a life which encompasses more than parity but a higher state of existence. A platform where my quest is no longer limited by parity and equality but an attitude that elevates my personhood. A life full of life…..
Look, we have to be about meritocracy and equality of opportunity. The GOP had a couple dozen black nominees in 2010. We need to ask, when anyone plays the race card, “What are the exit criteria? When has ‘enough’ been done? How can you satisfy me that we haven’t already done ‘enough’, and now we’re over-achieving?”
