We will never overcome racism (not end – that’s impossible – but overcome) until we cross economic boundaries to care for the poor, cross health boundaries to care for the sick, cross social boundaries to care for prisoners, cross tribal boundaries to protect immigrants, cross national boundaries to care for all of these in other countries, and cross the boundary of species to accept animals as persons. A direct attack on racism will never work, and I refuse to focus on a sniffle when the cause is a virus.
