The death of George Floyd underscores yet again the causes for the constant state of rage which prevails in the black conscience. Racial tensions are not new, unfortunately. What makes the current mood different is the insensitivity so blatantly for all to view in this White House. The arsonist - president is yet again full of grudge and short on empathy.

The culture war was easy to unleash but is hard to contain or reverse. One might have hoped that President Obama's  Amazing Grace  might have unlocked once and forever the flux of emotion from the shackles of prejudice and hatred. Trump made sure that his nationalistic agenda got implemented instead. The clock was turned back and America finds itself stuck in a rabbit hole.

Black Americans are more than ever frisked, jailed, profiled, discriminated , since justice has been overtaken by the Trump "collaborators". Today, being black and Republican is more than a mistake, it is a deadly sin.

James Baldwin said that he loved America more than any other country in the world and that, exactly for this reason, he insisted on the right to criticize her perpetually. He would be a very busy man now.
