The cover of Time magazine’s issue last week was the most compelling photo I have seen regarding the riots in Baltimore.
It is 2015–the 21st century–and matters regarding race are still making headlines, causing violence and deaths, and driving a deeper wedge into two dominant groups in the US. How can we expect to progress and function as a society? Listening to commentary from social media sounds like the interview for a street crime–everyone saw, heard or understood something different.
The magazine cover says it all: despite all of our technological, scientific and literary accomplishments, much of American has remained the same.
