0503-martin-luther-king-quotesIt is really with great sadness I hear about all the race infighting in the US. This is not how the US was envisioned in the beginning. The equality between the peoples of the US, is the very lifeblood of the founding fathers ideas. The idea, that equality between people would bring harmony, is true.

I am not saying, that you cannot control who gets in to the country and who do not, but those who originally made the country, should be able to live along together.

What does that require? As the great rev. Martin Luther King says, it requires that all are protected by the rights of the state. Civil rights is for everyone. That is why it is so extra important that the police are the most non racist in the country. Because they control the rights. If they veer off on a racist cause, then the civil rights body is not neutral as it is supposed to be.

I know that you may feel that “whites” have it less good. I know that there is a such a feeling. But sometimes you feel like going haywire and start shouting and just do whatever you want. It is like that with human beings, there are initial feelings that has to do with our natural inclinations. The problem is just, if we follow these natural inclinations, we end up in a society where the strong rules.

Civilisation, or civil rights, is about refining our inclinations, and bring a higher level of society. A society where we are able to live side by side red, white, green, yellow, whatever the colour.

This is what the US is about, being civilised and thereby having the opportunity to be free from violence and the rule of strong.

I believe it is about looking at the positive ideals, instead of getting sucked into the negative blame game. The US is a harmonious society, where people live side by side, despite their colour.

G-d bless the United States of America

    Thank you, Asger, for those wise and encouraging words. Most of us in the U.S. are deeply saddened by the violence of last week. It seems we have made little progress since the 1960s in overcoming racial prejudice and economic inequality. Still, there are some signs of hope in the demonstrations of solidarity between citizens of all ethnic backgrounds. We still believe in the ideals of leaders like Martin Luther King, Jr. May his sacrifice not be in vain as we seek to realize his call to form a “beloved community.”
