I am a black man and I love America. I was born in America and so were my parents, grandparents and greatgrandparents, one of who was native american. The problem is America doesn’t love me. Growing up in the Jim Crow south fearful and stunted, I have deep emotional scars. I try to feel hopeful, but I am reminded daily by politicians and the news that the divisions and angst are still there. I see the new me in the person of Latino immigrants, who simply want a piece of the American dream. They are no different than the various ethnicities that came through Ellis island. I am wounded and hurt as I approach my seventieth year. I thought we had turned a corner electing a black president, but time has shown that to be an abberration. His successor offers people like me no hope, but I will continue to overcome and overcome. I am an optimist that the basic tenets of what this country stands for will win out.
